CMS Websites explained

A CMS (Content Management System) is software that allows users to edit their website through an administration page or ‘back-end’ without requiring any knowledge of programming. A CMS will normally include a WYSIWYG editor (What You See Is What You Get) which makes updating website text as simple as using Microsoft Word. These programs also allow non-technical users to add pictures, new pages or other content to a website.

The majority of CMSs require a database in which to store their variables, such as MySQL or MSSQL. When you use an online shopping cart the website will pull the store’s inventory from a database to display pricing, stock levels and other information.

At Via Design all our website are built using CMS. You can easily login and start updating / managing your site.
