Acquia

For mid to large companies trying Drupal for the first time, Acquia provides a strong support and educational system to better understand the needs of the platform. Longer term, there can be some strain when comparing on-premise or unmanaged costs with their cost tiers.

Weebly

Weebly is well-suited for small e-commerce companies that have limited budget and expertise for creating a website. If you need to come up with a website fast and aren't worried about heavy customizations, Weebly will be a good tool in the short-term. It won't take long for you to outgrow Weebly though.

Pros

  • Drupal expertise
  • Products that have ease of use
  • Solid systems built on AWS

  • The greatest strength of Weebly is the split design interface. The primary design method is graphical, drag-and-drop. The secondary design method is direct hands-on management of the CSS. This combination means we can get to launch far faster, without sacrificing customization.
  • One feature Weebly had which no competitors could match was enabling SSL for ecommerce sites. Where most competitors give a 'shared' SSL which exposes the platform's URL during the checkout stage, Weebly enables site-specific SSL, so your customers never leave your site.
  • Weebly's ease of management is less unique, but should be mentioned. Every object is managed in context, so the learning curve for clients who wish to self-manage is incredibly short. We are able to hand off the site confidently with just one or two brief training sessions.

Cons

  • Not much
  • Send us free candy
  • Continue doing what they are doing
Chris Hood profile photo
  • Weebly's pricing structure leaves plenty of room for improvement. Their Pro and Business tiers should be combined, as the overlap is significant and often confuses clients.
  • The inability to expand my account to handle all 18 client sites under one account is frustrating. We are forced to have two separate logins and set both accounts as editors for all sites on each account, instead of just paying double the annual fee and getting all the sites together.
  • The inability to shift a client's site from 'white label' to group management is terribly irritating.
  • The default themes are fairly limited in style and do not always directly follow modern design trends, making matching client desires more difficult.

Drupal is designed to grow with our changing needs and technology trends. Our hope is that as new features are needed, we'll be able to adapt as we grow

Weebly is consistently adding features that line up with our needs. The ease of use makes it the perfect program for us since we have users of multiple age brackets and knowledge of web design. We love that we can give users access to only the pages they are affiliated with

It is simple to use and offers enough customization to make a website that is personalized. Templates are pretty standard and the help section is laid out well by topic with frequently asked questions. Some design knowledge is helpful, but through trial and error anyone can get a hold of the reins fairly quickly.

Alternatives Considered

Acquia offers a more robust product suite than Pantheon. Acquia also offers professional services for another level beyond what Pantheon offers. Acquia pricing is typically more expensive than Pantheon, but the extra cost tends to be worth it, given all the support you receive from Acquia's team.

I selected Weebly because I thought their themes weren't as janky as WordPress. I also like their price structure and overall easiness of maintaining the app. It also syncs with other applications that I use, like Hatchbuck. I like the support and reliability of Weebly so far and hope to continue to use them for my needs.
