A content management system (CMS) is a software application or set of related programs that are used to create and manage your website. They allow you to make all the changes to your website in one place, via a web browser interface and see the changes live. Most are simple and secure to use and allow you to easily organise, manage and publish your content, keeping your website up to date from any connected location.
The most popular CMS system is WordPress (used by over half of the top 1 million websites) – see Built With
, but all the options have their strengths and weaknesses. Your choice of CMS will depend on many factors, but is critical to the long term success of your website. Changing the platform at a later date is possible, but often a costly and complex process. CMS systems should offer a wide range of themes and plugins that provide for a limitless range of customisation options. Existing template designs can be adapted or we can start from your own visual ideas. Sites are generally built in modular form and developed over time to include extra functionality.
