    I might recommend WordPress because it's relatively easy to learn and widely supported. WordPress on an old machine, a small virtual private server (VPS), or shared hosting shouldn't cost more than $5/month. You could even use, which is $4/month (billed yearly) and includes a free domain name for the first year (you'd have to renew it in following years, but you could always keep a subdomain).

    I would be interested in some good migration tools, paid ones are also ok. I found a post about this on, but it didn't seem like an easy process. It is a multilanguage site with many content types, and a totally custom theme.

    PHP Headless Or you go with a Headless PHP CMS. Some options for that are Bolt CMS, Suru, Twill and ExpressionEngine. A Headless CMS doesn't have any frontend. It can provide you with a REST API or you create it in their template engine and integrate your JS stuff there. There are so many, I can't count them all. You can also search for Cockpit and Strapi.
  5. The modern open source flat-file CMS

    Learning curve for Joomla and Drupal about 11 days ago:

    I would recommend Grav or Kirby (if your site is less than 50 pages) or Craft if your site is larger than that. Craft is especially nice. I has an incredibly powerful developer experience and an incredibly refined editor experience. Those 2 don't often go together. Grav and Kirby are nice in that they give you all the nice features of a CMS, but don't require a database, so they're trivially easy to stand up...

    How comfortable are you with learning PHP? WordPress is the obvious choice due to it's popularity (but with it moving towards a full-site editing experience it isn't as fun to work with anymore IMO but that's just me). You could also look into things like Statamic or October CMS which are supposed to be very nice to work with as I believe they're both Laravel based.
  8. Jekyll is a simple, blog aware, static site generator.

    But there was this TYPO3 CMS that I was actually always in contact with. Already at the very beginning when it was released I used it privately. In the first years of my second attempt as a freelancer, I used TYPO3 more and more, and got better and better at it.
