What is a CMS?
Simply put: A CMS, or content management system, is a system used to manage the content of a website. It allows you to publish, edit or organize all content from a central interface. It also enables website owners to sort through and locate documents with ease; this includes texts, video, photos and raw data. A CMS is recommended for anyone who is planning on creating a website that will be updated more than twice a month. This is because a CMS has certain advantages; such as scalability, security, functionality, usability and application support. It also means that business owners can have a web presence without the need for a technical team to maintain the running of a website. WordPress CMS is by far the most popular content management system. In addition to the advantages listed, it also provides users with a host of professional templates and add-ons that increase the accessibility of your site and allow it to grow over time.
