What is a CMS?

CMS stands for Content Management System.

It is software built to easily manage content.  WordPress is the most widely used CMS today.

Other common Content Management Systems include Joomla, Magento, and Drupal.

Content Management Systems make it easy for website owners to add content to their websites in the form of blogs, images, video, and audio.  This allows businesses, bloggers and others to create a website or blog that they can manage much easier than a website built from scratch.

Most CMSs have built-in content editors.  The WordPress content editor is similar to Microsoft Word thus making it more familiar to someone who may struggle with creating content for the web.  WordPress can be further simplified by adding plugins that allow you to design the page or post even further.  These plug-ins can negatively impact the performance of your website.

WordPress is built using PHP.  PHP is used in almost 84% of all websites built today while WordPress CMS is being used in almost 32% of all websites.
