What is CMS?

A content management system (CMS) is a collection of software tools that help website owners create, publish, and manage their web content. A CMS typically includes a WYSIWYG editor that allows non-technical users to make website changes without writing or editing code. While some CMSs are open source and free to use (like WordPress), others come with a price tag (like Shopify or Webflow).

A CMS (content management system) is a software application designed to help website owners to create, publish, and manage their web content. It’s a powerful tool used by millions of website owners, businesses, and developers who require a simple way to create, edit, update, and organize digital content.

At its core, a CMS is an application that acts as the bridge between content creators and website visitors. No matter what type of website you have, a CMS helps you create, manage, and optimize the information on it. Without a CMS, you would need to code and design every page on your website manually.

One of the most popular and affordable types of CMS is WordPress. It’s an open-source CMS platform that millions of website owners, businesses, and developers use. WordPress is free to download and use on our hosting and many other hosting service providers and is incredibly user-friendly, making it perfect for those just starting out.

WordPress is also a highly-flexible CMS which can be used for almost any website. So whether you’re creating a blog, an e-commerce site, an educational website, or any other online presence, WordPress has the tools and features you need.
