A take on Traditional coding v.s CMS tools

by Ziuby

Static websites are very difficult for clients to update without knowledge of HTML, CSS, and FTP. So the developer requires technical knowledge. They are mainly designed and developed to display text on web and not be responsive and they don’t require special kind of hosting. Static websites are costly to make a major change or upgrade and does not support web 2.0 tools very well.

A content management system (CMS) is an application that allows for the creation and editing of content as well as for performing other site maintenance.  It allows you control over many aspects of your web site such as the text, links, navigation, images and documents. When you are working with CMS website, you will need more specific web hosting. Developers don’t need to know HTML, FTP in order to update website, all they need is web-browser and access to admin panel of the CMS system they are using. So the developer does not require technical knowledge. Web 2.0 features are supported by most content management systems. It’s very easy to add a blog, photo gallery, event calendar, shopping cart etc. Extensions (Plugins) can be developed by anyone, and almost free. CMS can be used to make the sites responsive.

Whether you are a highly skilled web developer or new in a web development , you can play a role in creating a web presence to gain your customer. If you want to create Corporate website, personal web content or blog page , instead of handling HTML and CSS coding ,all you need to do is to buy hosting and install a content management system (CMS). It is a computer application that allows publishing, editing and modifying content, organizing, deleting as well as maintenance from a central interface. With the help of CMS,you can have a website which looks highly polished, and displaying the content that you wish to share on your website.
