What Is A Content Management System (CMS)?

This article will teach you what a Content Management System (CMS) is and how it can help you maintain your website.

A Content Management System (CMS) is a web-based administration interface that is used for making updates to a websites content. A CMS is usually setup by a web designer so their client can make updates to content on the website themselves. This can save the website owner time and money by not requiring the web designer to make simple content updates to the site. There are several popular Content Management Systems available but the most well known is WordPress. CMS platforms like WordPress include a WYSIWYG editor. WYSIWYG stands for "What You See Is What You Get". Most people are familiar with using Microsoft Word where you can easily change text sizes, text color and even make text bold, italic or underlined. That is a type of WYSIWYG editor. They allow a user with limited experience update a website within a Content Management System (CMS). Some other popular CMS platforms include Joomla and Drupal.
