Why choose a CMS for your website?


Maybe you are wondering why choose a CMS solution instead of developing a website in the traditional way. A tailored website, that is created from scratch without the help of a Content Management System, requests the work and the experience of a specialist which has deep skills in programming languages like JavaScript, HTML and php. On the contrary, that obstacle is overcome by using a CMS and the creation and management of the website is simplified. Obviously, the level of customization would be higher, but the development of a whole website would take much longer. According to the insights, CMS systems are installed on the 47% of online websites. Indeed, a CMS has several benefits:

  • Easy to use
    CMS have an administration panel with a graphical interface very easy to use, with which you can create the website pages and make changes through an editor that shows you directly the final result.
  • Responsive
    Templates included help to create responsive websites, that are able to adjust to the different devices used (desktop, tablet and mobile).
  • Customization
    CMS, as said before, allows you to make an advanced customization through the download of proper plug-in and extensions. For instance, to integrate methods of payment or create the field for the newsletter’s subscription.
  • Multi-user
    Thanks to that feature you can assign different roles to users accessing the website’s administration panel, with related permissions to edit pages, code etc…
