Is a Content Management System a Must?

Is a Content Management System a must?

The answer to this question is undoubtedly YES. Let’s begin with defining what a Content Management System is. A Content Management System (CMS) is software that allows you to create, edit, and publish digital content to a website or blog without involving the development team, so you control any change on any page. Almost all Content Management Systems use WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editors, which means these require minimal coding knowledge, and the edits are done in a timely manner. 


Another great feature of a CMS is the Media Library. The media library allows you to upload your images and files easily. Not only is it easy to upload images, but it also gives you the ability to edit photos before you use them on your website. 


When choosing a CMS, it’s important to remember that a great CMS system doesn’t have to provide everything natively. It’s more important to have a big user community, support for third-party integrations, and a long list of available plugins that can save you time. However, be careful choosing plugins, as some can make your website more vulnerable to hackers.


What is the most popular Content Management System?

While many Content Management Systems are available, the most popular CMS is WordPress, with over 27 million live websites. WordPress was initially created as a blogging platform, but since then has been transformed into a versatile CMS that can be used for all kinds of websites. Other CMS that are popular today are HubSpot, Drupal, and Shopify (to name a few).
