If you’ve ever visited a web design agency, then you’re have bound to have heard them talking about “CMS”, or “content management systems”.
This just simply describes the content management system that’s been used to build the site.
As part of the cms, it should incorporate the tools to help you, edit, and manage some parts of your website, such as for example, adding a new address to the contact us page.
Some CMS are much more popular than others, and some have a dashboard which are very simple to use, some are more difficult.

WordPress is really popular with many companies, as its an open-source content management system (CMS) which uses PHP and MySQL coding.
What makes WordPress popular is features such as the many free plugins that are offered.
For example, there’s plugins which can be used to help someone with no web design knowledge, easily add a meta title and description to a website.

A CMS essentially allows you to edit your company website, without having to have any coding experience.
So, what this means in a nutshell is that you can easily add new pages and edit existing ones.
There are literally thousands of different CMS options out there – so choosing the right one for your business is important.
Your web design company should spend the time with you to understand if you need a brochure or an e-commerce website.
They need to understand what functionality your website needs to have, such as, lets say you run a solicitors practice, you may want the website to take a payment for an initial hour long consultation with a lawyer.
Therefore the website developers will need to build a booking system, so that customers can book a consultation with a solicitor.
