Well WordPress is wrote mostly on PHP which was created in 1994 so almost 20 years old because of that some flaws come from it which include
- Not good for ecommerce
- Slow speeds
- codes will often not work on it well since it’s not designed for full coder to use it well
- Easy to hack
Ecommerce is something which often needs fast load times or efficient ways to add products quick for why some people use instead of wordpress like Shopify or Magento or Drupal among other options they are better coded to work for ecommerce sites for example you could work fairly well a site similar to like ebay using purely say Magento fairly easy to me overall.
When it comes to busy site and lots of products being sold php is often not well designed for this plus WordPress is full of things most people don’t need overall.
Server on WordPress because of it full of things most people don’t need or want means speed on medium or busyer site can get slower and slower and plugins often give slow speeds or themes as well since many of them are not coded right overall.
When you have a small or semi quiet site WordPress normally good to okay but when your site gets busier like 100,000 traffic per month expect WordPress to now tank speed wise often or get slower and loser forcing you to keep having to upgrade or get better servers overall.
I always found very annoying Adsense code often not work well or search consoles codes or other things get told it’s broken or not able to work this is often major headache for many people all around the world .
Hacking WordPress is so easy such most people use silly password like password or there name or something a non hacker can find out very easy so pick someone smart as a password like this “vgbyh£6tY78u9i03ujimkdf”
Try and not have wordpress admin like this”wp-admin” have instead something else they will not know like say ghujikoflrdgyhuji
Have a security plugin such as Wordfench to stop brute attack which on WordPress can be often big problem for anyone with busy website at least so try and have a way to ban IPs from say Germany if that’s where the attack ips coming from or another country same idea by simply using the plugin to show you the problem then guide you to make the right course of action overall.
Never use plugins or themes which are like 6 months or older if you do they could easy be hacked then you end up with say backdoor back into your website which can get annoying sometimes or make your clients lose money so never use old or broken plugins or themes or older ones when possible and try and focus on ones which are made by a good company or business like say lifeofcoding
