CMS Explained

What is CMS?

Content Management

Static Websites were all very fine in their day, but the needs of modern businesses have changed.

Using a CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (CMS) allows you or your staff, who are not experienced web designers, to add, delete or edit pages, through a web-based administration interface.

They can paste their content (articles, service information or news) straight into web pages, click on a submit button, and have these pages immediately display on the web.

A major advantage of a CMS is in reducing the costs: This can result in big savings because instead of using a web designer every time you need to add or update your web pages, you or your staff can add/update the content during normal working hours.

This website is managed and updated using a CMS system.

Web sites with integrated Content Management Systems

Unlike a normal website, which is a collection of "static" pages, a CMS is dynamically driven from a database.

It makes sense to store your web pages in a database, rather than as tens or even hundreds of HTML files. Putting web pages into a database gives advantages including financial savings and fast updates.
