A content management system, also known as a CMS is a type of software that allows for the creating, organizing, editing and publishing of content. An example of a CMS is WordPress. While WordPress is typically used for publishing web content, it is capable of managing content through a single computer or on an intranet.
In the early years of the Internet and website design, the standard user or small company had no choice but to use static HTML sites. This was simply because they could not afford the current content management systems. At the time, these systems cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and people just didn’t have that kind of money. Things have come a long way since then and the cost problem has been solved, and CMS platforms such as WordPress are free for anyone to use.
WordPress is so versatile that it is only limited by your creativity. It can be used to power blogs, small and large business websites, university websites, real estate sites and the list just goes on and on. If you can dream it, WordPress can likely build it.
