    A Content Management System (often shorten to CMS) is a computer application or system (most likely web based) used to create, manage, edit, manipulate and maintain the content of a web site without the knowledge or skills that a webmaster may have. The system may be used by a multiple of users with variable authorisation levels ranging from "Super Administrator", to "Editor", "Author", and "Managers" at any one point.

    A CMS main aim is to provide easy web content creation and maintenance without the need to understand web coding and programming. It also has the additional benefit of offering increasing and endless applications at a fraction of the cost which may have otherwise been charged by professional developers. A content management system is more often than not developed on an open source basis. In other word, the programmatic foundations of the application are developed in a collaborative way where thousands of developers and programmers participate to the project to continuously evolve and improve the software and a free basis.


    A good CMS will have a great diversity of extensions, plugins and add-ons on offer, allowing endless possibilities and options for an ever improving web content experience to internet users. Below are the major content manamgement system available for download today:
