CMS Management

More and more clients are coming to us as they would like to have more control over their website. CMS Websites, gives the client the freedom they need. CMS stands for Content Management Software.

There are many different types of CMS, for example Joomla and Wordpress. These are open source software thats free for anyone to use. The core software is used to build the site then 3rd party add-ons are used to make the website all signing and dancing.

Security Add-ons

The most important part of a CMS website is that it needs to be kept secure. All core software and any 3rd party add-ons need to be kept updated on a regular basis. As standard we do this for a clients as part of the hosting service we provide. Site backup should take place before and any changes or updates are done. Remember a backup is only good if it is a tested working backup.
