    I own a cctld PropertyAgent.XX
    140,000 property listing in my db (few month collection) and few thousand new listing perday.
    Currently i have 6000 property agent using my service.
    SEMrush
    So i plan to create a personal website for each agent, but not sure which CMS suit me ?

    Currently i have 3 thing in mind.
    1. Wordpress - i much familiar with it and tons of resources.
    2. Drupal - which i believe is strong and solid CMS.
    3. Custom build.

    for given situation, which cms will you choose ?
    (no worry on hardware but i does worry WP limit)
    thank

    but drupal sub domain setup is very confusing and it does required a lot technical knowledge + hard to get drupal coder around.
    Wordpress (wordpress multi site WPMS), is very simple to set up + tons of resources.

    millions thanks

    Because that gives a ton of explanation why OP should use Drupal over the alternatives. /sarcasm

    I would definitely not recommend Wordpress for such an endeavor, and I'm a wordpress fanboy. While wordpress is extremely easy it does sit heavy on the resource load side of things. Having 6000 instances of wordpress would be... daunting...

    If these websites for your agents are self hosted and minimal information is going to be displayed (text, profile picture, general information, perhaps links to their listings) I would opt for a custom solution. It really depends. The custom solution is going to be much more resource friendly in the long run as you could easily optimize the agent's website to be light on resources.

    One thing I'm wondering is if these websites are going to be in the format of subdomain.YOUR.TLD or something along those lines. Are the agent websites going to be integrated into your main website so they have something like YOUR.TLD/AGENT? The structure you have there would heavily influence the final decision.

    If you are familiar with WP just go with it, it will be a lot easier for you thanearning something else from 0. That is my opinion.

    Fully Agreed with suggestions. I would prefer to go with Custom / Core PHP. Ofcourse it requires development experienced to build it. I would suggest to hire good developer and get it done from him / her.

    Woocommerce would have chances to hack because of free plugins otherwise Wordpress is best for SEO point of view.

    What do you mean "site for each agent?". Wordpress multisite is pretty powerful for allowing each agent to have their own subsite, but those will be separate sites with their own data and you'll need some custom code to allow them to display shared listings.

    I'd probably still go with Wordpress and either custom home pages for each agent (and maybe a membership plugin to manage content visibility), or multisite to give each agent more control of their own domain.

    OP seems to want to say "I'd like to stay with WordPress, need someone to convince me to stick to it because I've heard bad things about load limits." - wordpress.com is a multisite setup which hosts loads of blogs, yet it's fast enough to convince me to use the same platform for my own business needs, if that's what I'm familiar with more than other CMS solutions.

    Dare you list other people properties and then see Lehman Brothers 2 coming in the world. Entire investment of banks in Infra projects will start flowing in Telecom and Internet again.

    Yes wordpress is easier to use and there are a lot more people working with it.
    As you said wordpress are less suited to work with really big databases so in your case it might be better to try and use Drupal.

    WordPress is easy to handle. I agree but for your project Drupal will be best option.

    I know WordPress is easy to handle and simple as well; But there are many I've seen they are switching over WordPress for their own product; For projects like eCommerce or News Sites or Property Listing Business.

    What do you suggest?

    Will it be secure to create your own CMS and use it?
