What is a content management system or CMS?

Content management systems or CMS

A CMS is a software offering a user-friendly interface for creating, managing and distributing content.

There are a large number of CMS available on the market. Among these, WordPress is by far the most popular option.

This open source software is modular and highly customizable. It allows you to create any type of websites by simply selecting suitable themes and plugins.

A CMS typically contains two key components: a content management application (CMA) and a content delivery application (CDA).

CMA is a content editor that allows you to create and design web pages without the need for coding. CDA then disseminates the resulting content to users. Together, these elements manage the core infrastructure (including coding and database queries).

Note: If you are already familiar with the content management system you wish to use, we invite you to consult the associated Ex2 hosting plans. We offer specialized solutions for Wordpress and other CMS such as Drupal, Moodle or Joomla.
