A content management system (CMS) allows you to keep track of every piece of content on your Web site, including simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. A CMS allows non-technical people to add, change and delete Web site content.

A CMS can be used to create:

  • Web sites or portals
  • Intranets and extranets
  • Online magazines, newspapers, and publications
  • E-commerce and online reservations

Joomla is a content management system (CMS), which allows you to quickly build Web sites. It is very easy to use, and this has made Joomla the most popular Web site CMS software available.

Drupal is a CMS software package that allows an individual or a community of users to easily publish, manage and organize a wide variety of content on a Web site.

Squirrel Cart is an open source shopping cart with a built in CMS. It is very robust and can be customized to handle almost any catalog or shopping cart application.
