Content Management System (CMS) is the platform in which content is developed for website users. There are many CMS’ available today, but the best CMS websites are those that offer high quality UI and UX web design along with optimal performance and speed.
The most popular CMS platforms available today are:
Each one of the above CMS platforms provide specific functionality. For instance, WooCommerce, BigCommerce, Shopify and Magento are popular ecommerce platforms. They make it easy to add new content such as products, descriptions, and the ability for website users to purchase on ecommerce sites or online stores.
WordPress, HubSpot, and Wix are great for content-based websites in which most of the added content are in the form of blog posts. They are also good for publishing landing pages to convert website visitors coming to the site through paid ads.
Drupal and Joomla are open-source CMS platforms that offer more customization and can handle a lot of data. It’s best for creating many different types of web pages and digital content. Due to the robust customization available with Drupal and Joomla, they require a high level of coding knowledge.
A successful website doesn’t just look good, it functions the way users expect. The only way to do this is to find the best CMS for your target audience.
No two CMS websites are created equal. Knowing the differences among the different types of CMS platforms can help you choose the right one for the real content for your web pages.
It’s important to know that the above popular CMS platforms can be used in conjunction with one another. For example, you can have a WordPress site with WooCommerce to be able to support content creation AND eCommerce products. Being able to integrate more than one can be quite difficult for mid-level developers, so it’s a good idea to work with experienced CMS website design and development experts.
WordPress CMS is one that offers the most flexibility when it comes to integration with other platforms to provide as much customization as possible.

A website is made up of different types of content:
The best websites have a balance of all types of digital content. To be able to do this, the CMS software must be able to support the complexity of the content.
Not only does the CMS platform have to support the complexity of the content, but it must be user friendly for content creators, content editors or non-technical users. No one wants a website that requires a developer for every single update or adjustment.
Making it easy to add content to a website is highly important for ecommerce sites or online stores. New products or changing product prices and availability can be a daily activity. It’s important that content editors can do this themselves, so there is no bottleneck in delivering the latest information to their users.
When clients decide to work with Atiba’s team of CMS website design experts, they decide to make their lives easier when it comes to building or redesigning a website.

Our CMS website designers also work with our hosting provider to ensure the the best web hosting platform is chosen for the CMS platform. This matters greatly as web hosting is highly responsible for the speed and performance of the site.
Many people ask about WordPress com since it comes with hosting, but that is not a good option for growing websites, as it has limited capabilities. WordPress org is a CMS that must have hosting attached to it, and gives users the ability to have a website that meets a growing business’ needs.
