A content management system (CMS) is a software application used to manage the content of a website and usually intended to allow website owners unfamiliar with web technologies to make changes to their web pages.
A typical CMS consists of two elements: the content management application (CMA) and the content delivery application (CDA). The CMA element allows the content manager or author, who may not know HTML, to manage the creation, modification, and removal of content from a website without needing the expertise of a web designer. The CDA element uses and compiles that information to update the website. The features and costs of CMS systems vary greatly, but most include web-based publishing, format management, revision control, and indexing, search and retrieval.
Many web hosting companies bundle simple content management solutions with their web hosting services which meet the needs of most small business website owners. Should additional web page maintenance functionality be required, our recommended content management solution is a lightweight W3C standards-aware CMS that we install on your web server or web hosting account. This means you stay in complete control and aren't dependent on any third-party services. The interface can be branded with colors and a logo to help make integration seamless. It uses PHP and MySQL, which most web hosting companies provide.
