What is CMS?
CMS is short for content management system. However, there are many versions of this term that are used interchangeably. They all refer to the same concept. Some of these versions include:
- Web CMS
- CMS System
- Web Content Management System
- CMS Platform
- Content Management Platform
A CMS is a software programme that’s used to create and manage a website. It helps you to create, edit and manage content on a website without the need for any technical skills or knowledge.
A CMS stores your website content and makes content editing easy for those who are not technically savvy. Moreover, multiple people can log into the CMS interface to update the website.
In summary, this is how CMS works: your CMS development company takes care of all the technical work of building your website into the CMS before handing over the keys to you so you can easily add and update the content as you like.
In short, a CMS makes content creation and content delivery a breeze.
For example, let’s say you want to add a new page to your website. In the absence of a CMS, you would have to write an HTML file and upload this file to the server.
Just reading this makes your head spin, right?
A content management system makes this same task very, very simple and easy.
You can write your content in the interface that looks like a word-processing software such as Microsoft Word.
Now that sounds a lot easier, right?
