Most businesses are quite happy to have a designer handle occasional updates, so they can just get on with their business. Some however, want the flexibility to make their own updates, which requires a content management system that is more frequently abbreviated as CMS.
A CMS is ideal if you want to update your own blog on a daily or weekly basis for example. Once the basic styling is set you can create new pages or edit content that will retain the same look and changes can be made by logging into an admin web page for your website.
Perhaps the best known CMS is WordPress, which started life as a blogging platform but has become the number one target for hackers, since the websites are so common and WordPress user are often not very knowledgeable about how to defend themselves against attacks.
Wordpress also relies on a database that is heavy on server resources, so I prefer alternatives, such as Pulse CMS that produce faster loading websites without the reliance on a database and write changes directly to the web pages. This is ideal for people who want a simple means of updating their own website and even comes with a launcher app for Windows, Mac, Android or iPhone.
A flat-file CMS without a database is ideal for people who want a simple means of updating their own website and even comes with a launcher app for Windows, Mac, Android or iPhone.
