Content Management Systems

Content Management System (CMS) is a dynamic way of displaying content onto a web page. It is a necessity for sites that will need constant updating because it keeps the content separate form the programming. The benefit to having a website created using CMS is that it saves on time when content needs to be corrected or changed because none of the core coding needs to be touched.

Dynamic websites: (usually created using a CMS) are more efficient and can be easily maintained and expand. These websites content is stored in a database and is displayed or changed frequently and automatically. Dynamic websites typically involve a template and a database creation with little design needed for content.

Static websites: usually display the same information to all visitors and are best to provide consistent, standard information for an extended period of time. Updates require a manual process to edit the text, photos and other content. Static sites require basic website design skills and software.
