What is Content Management System (CMS)?
A content management system or CMS is software that helps users to create, manage, edit, and modify content on a website without requiring special technical knowledge. It allows editing, publishing, and maintaining website content from a central interface.
The CMS is not a backend management interface but it also makes all web content that you create showcase your audience and visitors. On a more technical level, a content management system is made up of two distinct and core parts: CMA and CDA.
CMA (Content Management Application) - This part allows you to actually add and manage content on your website. CDA (Content Delivery Application) - The backend or behind-the-scenes process that takes the content that you input in the CMA, then stores it properly, and makes it visible to your visitors.
Together, these two systems help to easily maintain your website. According to a survey, the most widely used CMS program is WordPress (used by 40.4% of all websites), followed by Shopify and Joomla.
