Content Management Systems

The Internet is constantly changing and the changes are coming faster than ever before. Because of this we only use the latest technologies in our websites to support your business not only today but in the future as well. Content Management Systems provide a platform to easily manage your website and keep it up to date. But what do we mean when we say 'manage' your website. 

Early websites were all coded using HTML (HyperText Markup Language) which is still used today in many websites. However until now, HTML has been commonly used only for static websites that only provide simple information and you would need someone that knew how to program with HTML to make your website. Even making the most simple changes required someone with an understanding of HTML to do the job. 

Today that is no longer the case. The job of the content management system is to help users create and display content on a website without the need of any coding knowledge. In fact it's so easy to use that pretty much anyone with basic computer knowledge can be shown how to publish articles to the web on their own website. Not only does the content management system (or CMS for short) make it easy to display articles, it also understands the links that need to flow throughout your website. It will make sure that menus are linked to the right place. 

There are many content management systems to choose from, a number of which are commercial and use proprietary software/code. We choose to support free and open source options where available as this ensures you are not locked into one option forever after once your site is complete. 

The list of benefits to using a CMS for your businesses website is huge, here you can find links to some of the most popular content management systems if you would like more information:
