The biggest difference between MODX and WordPress is the usability. With MODX you can fully customize your website. This makes it flexible for either the developer and the non-developer.

The many plugins of WordPress

If you want to create a small website or a blogging website, WordPress may be the right CMS for you. WordPress has a lot of plugins to make small adjustments to the theme. But because everyone can add WordPress plugins and themes, it may cause damage to the security of your website.

MODX security


Since day one MODX has put security first. A team of the MODX Community checks all the code, detects vulnerabilities and solves these. So you can be sure of a secure MODX website. 

Hackers are more focused on websites of WordPress. This is because these websites have more leaks and over 50.000 plugins. Besides that, most of the WordPress websites are created by a non-developer, who easily forgets to secure his website.
