A content management system, or CMS for short, is an application that allows website owners and other authorized users to create, publish, modify and store a website’s content from a central interface. A CMS portal normally has an administration section on the web – also known as the backend – where content is made or edited. The content can then be viewed by end users on the website, which is also known as the front end. Unlike a static website, a CMS-based website is dynamic meaning there is a database in which information is stored and fetched real-time when an end user accesses that piece of information. Static websites, on the other hand, have the information coded on each web page.

You only have to access a password-protected dashboard and from there, you can do your content modifications. While your site visitor won’t have a clue whether your site is built using CMS, the differences between CMS and static HTML are something that you as the website owner will feel as you go along managing your site. Here are some of the benefits of having a CMS-based site.
