About Content Management Systems (CMS)

A CMS or a ‘Content Management System’ quite literally allows you to control and manage the content within your web site – without technical training. Using this uncomplicated system you can very easily add, delete images and edit text in your web site on the fly. You can also have an unlimited number of pages and a full site-search engine.

A good example of a content management system is WordPress which contributes to 27% of the websites in the internet today. Other CMS include Joomla, Drupal, Open Cart, Shopify, Adobe Dreamweaver, etc.

As with all software, such as operating systems, these all require updates at some point. These updates come with increased security measures and protocols and enhanced features to build better websites more efficiently.
