What is a website content management system?

If you are thinking of having a new website for your company or simply having an old website re-designed then you will probably have heard the phrase ‘content management system’ bandied around as you research your options. What is this exactly and what are the benefits to your business? Well, let us explain…!

Option One - Static Website

There are two broad types of website that you could have for your business; firstly let’s explain what is commonly referred to as a ‘static website’. This option will mean less of an up-front outlay for your company and is more suited to those who may be on an extremely limited budget, or are maybe still at the ‘testing the water’ stage with their company or online enterprise. What you will receive here is a website that will of course contain all the content that you need but it won't be possible for you to alter it yourself. Basically what you agree to once the website is designed is what will remain online for your audience to see. If you should want to refresh and update your website content (whether that be through changing text content or adding new imagery), then it is very likely you will need to go through your web designer to do this and a charge will probably be incurred.

Option Two - Content Management System

On to option two, what is commonly referred to as a ‘content manageable website’ or a ‘website with a content management system’. These websites come with a facility for you to be able to have control over all your website content, meaning that your website content need never be out of date again! Whilst this option will likely mean an increased initial outlay, the benefit of this is that it eradicates on-going cost in terms of the day-to-day management and updating of your website, as you can do it yourself! So, you can update your gallery with new images, add new products to your ecommerce website and add new services to your website in your own time and as frequently as you like.

Here at Destylio, we pride ourselves on our easy-to-use content management system, which is built to suit the exact needs of each individual website. We provide you with your very own ‘Website Control Centre’ from where you can easily manage the content of all aspects of your website. These changes will, once saved, go online instantly for all of your audience to see. As each content management system is tailored to the specific needs of each website, we only include the functions that are relevant for your website. This results in it being very user friendly and makes it easy to find your way around, rather than having hundreds of unnecessary and confusing options available which is often the case with 'off-the-shelf' solutions.

We always recommend that you opt to include our content management system with your website - not only are they easy to use, they are also very reasonably priced so why not contact us today for a quote? We can also provide you with a flexible website payment plan, meaning that you can spread the cost at no extra charge.
