Content Management Systems

What Exactly Is A Content Management System (CMS)?

At Namhost we describe CMS as a system on which a website is based which allows the administrator of the website to manage its content without having any programming knowledge.

Namhost can build sites on any CMS! We proud ourself in being agile enough to build websites on different CMSs depending client needs. We do however have our favourites for various reason. Below we will list a few:

DRUPAL - Our CMS of choice (www.drupal.org)

Drupal is open source software maintained and developed by a community of 630,000+ users and developers. This open development model means that people are constantly working to make sure Drupal is a cutting-edge platform that supports the latest technologies that the Web has to offer. The Drupal project's principles encourage modularity, standards, collaboration, ease-of-use, and more.

Namhost prefers Drupal as it is the most customisable, scalable and easy to use CMS. We build 90% of our sites on this system and our clients are very happy when it comes to the ease at which they can alter content on their websites using Drupal's backend.

 

WORDPRESS - Blogging on steroids (www.wordpress.org)

WordPress started as just a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as full content management system and so much more through the thousands of plugins and widgets and themes, WordPress is limited only by your imagination.

We at Namhost mostly use Wordpress to base blogging sites on.

 

JOOMLA (www.joomla.org)

Joomla is an award-winning content management system (CMS), which enables you to build Web sites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla a very popular Web site software. Best of all, Joomla is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone.
