Which CMS I Can Use For My Business?

A Content Management System, or a CMS for short, is a web-based application consisting of a central interface that allows easy content delivery and authoring. A CMS allows you to manage workflow, and collaborate with your team for creating web or blog content. Many Content Management Systems allow non-technical users to manage a website, and streamline publishing so you can have a rich array of content on your site with ease.

CMS allows:

• Creation of Fresh Content.

• Customisable Templates.

• Plugins and Widgets.

• Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) tools.

• Widely accessible and updateable.

The following CMSes are PHP-based, and use a MySQL database. The advantages of using such a CMS include portability, support and a large developer base with frequent updates and improvements.

• Easy to get started with.

• Open source PHP platform.

• Very active community.

• Only support coming from community rather than a company.

• One size fits all.

• Ability to add lots of content.

• Not great for Ecommerce stores.
