Content Management System

A content management system or CMS is a software that is used to build websites and create content to be published on the internet. Typically CMS allows you to create a website without writing any code.

In the early days of the web, you needed to know HTML to be able to code a website and publish your content online. That used to be hard, but CMS has made it much easier. Instead of writing your website code from scratch, the CMS software does it for you.

Think of it like driving a car. You don’t need to understand the mechanics behind how it all works. Instead, you use a simplified dashboard and pedals to tell the car what to do.

With a powerful CMS platform like WordPress, you can log in to your website dashboard and use a simplified interface to create your web pages, add content, and customize the design. Then the CMS does the hard work of creating the code for you.

With the right CMS, you can start a blog, open an eCommerce store, build a tutorial website, create portfolios, and more.
