What is a CMS?

A CMS is a Content Management System. When developing websites, this system is used as the underlying environment (or backend). For adding and managing pages, as well as more extensive functionalities such as booking systems and web shops. Commonly used systems are WordPress, Drupal and Joomla.

How does a CMS work?

A CMS was previously used primarily to easily post news and other content. Today, it is used much more widely and often serves as a framework for websites. For example, a CMS today offers a host of themes and plugins to fully customize your site. The big advantage is that there is usually very little programming involved. Besides WordPres, Drupal, Magento and Joomla are also well-known Content Management systems.

How do you put a CMS on your website?

If you have a little knowledge of FTP and databases, it is not difficult to set up a CMS. You only need to download and upload files on your own server. There is usually a “wizard” that allows you to set up your site within a few clicks. Then it’s a matter of customizing your website to your taste with a theme and plugins. Many standard themes and additions can be found for the well-known Content Management Systems. It is often possible to create your own theme, but you need programming knowledge to do so.
