It's hard to believe that people are still putting resources into static HTML websites these days. If all you want is a couple of pages for your site, using HTML web pages is fine. If, however, you intend to add content on a regular basis, and you want your site to be more than just a business card on the internet and actually do something for you, you need to change your tactic.
If you just keep adding more and more HTML pages, the website soon gets difficult to handle. Small things–like changing the navigation menu, adding a search box or replacing the header image–become big issues, because each and every page of the site has to be changed by hand. And that can drive even the calmest developer–and that’s who’ll be doing the changes–totally nuts. For a simple reason: it’s unnecessary. Also, the bigger the site gets, the more costly it will be to maintain. It’s no way to run a website. Today, there are better options, especially for enterprises.
Content management systems (CMS) are web applications designed to to make it easy for non-technical users to create, edit, and manage a website. They’re an an underlying system for publishing and displaying content on a website.
The concept is simple: code and content are kept in different places in the underlying system. This gives you an interface that lets you easily make your own changes to your website and keep your site current, letting it grow and evolve with your business.
