What is a CMS website?
A website using CMS or a ‘Content Management System’ is designed to provide extensive web page authoring and administration tools to allow users with very limited web programming skills to create and manage website content with relative ease using the CMS Platform’s uncomplicated software that makes creating and editing new website content as easy as using regular word processing software such as Microsoft Word to create it.
