What is CMS?
A content management system, or CMS, is a web application designed to manage the content of a website. Generally a content management system consists of two elements: Content management application (CMA) and the content delivery application (CDA). CMA allows an authorised person who may not be technically proficient in HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) to edit, delete or create content in a website without possessing any expertise of a Webmaster or a programmer.
It enables your website to stay fresh with page updates thereby making it more search engine friendly. The CDA element compiles and combines that information to update the website.
Before the advent of CMS hosting, website development was looked upon as a software professional’s forte. The CMS provides a simple user interface that allows the editor to create and modify content, add images and multimedia contents in the process bringing coders, designers and content writers under one roof.
