4.2. Content Management Systems

If you're looking for something a little more advanced than simple pages with writing on, then a Content Management system might be for you. It is defined as a collection of tools designed to allow the creation, modification organisation and removal of information from a Web site. It is common for a CMS to require users to have no knowledge of HTML in order to create new Web pages.

We offer 20 different CMS' and even some of the blog scripts can be used to manage an entire website. This is where it comes down to personal preference, you should go through all the different systems and decide which you prefer, you can find the list by clicking the Softaculous icon in cPanel and here's some help on using Softaculous. If you don't have time I'd recommend Drupal.

On the Drupal website you'll find a number of handbooks which, similar to our own, guide you step-by-step through all the different aspects of using the system. There is a vast library of modules which you can add to the vanilla script we provide to do virtually anything you could imagine! Not only that, but there are loads of ready-made themes that you can install to make your website much more unique.

Whichever CMS you choose please refer to the creator's website for documentation and help, a link to which can be found on the script's page in Softaculous. For instructions on installing a Content Management System click here.
