What is CMS?

CMS stands for: Content Management System.

In essence, it is a software application. It is what you need to create a website if you have no or limited technical knowledge!

If you don’t know how to code, a CMS provides you with everything you need!  Code is computer language.  A computer only understands YES and NO.  It can also be translated as ON and OFF.  Computer language is called BINARY CODE, a mathematical language consisting of ONES and ZEROS.

The dilemma is that everyone wants a website, but not everyone is versed in code or computer language. For this very reason CMS’s were created!  It can be used to create and manage a website without any coding knowledge!  User-friendly interfaces allows you to do just about everything with the click of your mouse!
