The Ultimate Guide to CMS

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO X. | CMS Website creation and maintenance has long troubled non-designers when it comes to building functional and visually stimulating sites. Enter the Content Management System (CMS). CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (CMS) CMS is a web program that allows users to create, modify and maintain content from a single interface. You install the software on your web host's server, then use your browser to log into your website and use the software to manage the content. Those with more advanced knowledge of HTML, CSS, PHP, MYSQL, etc. can get even more use out of CMS. Working with a CMS allows less experienced website creators and non-designers to create functional pages and update them periodically without having to depend on back-end developers. Unlike site builders, CMS allows individuals to quickly redesign their sites or easily change web hosts if necessary as well as create an online community for site visitors, which can encourage repeat web traffic.
