Cms hosting (Content Management Software) is a special kind of virtual dedicated server that has a pre-installed content management system. The main difference between this service from VDS and VPS servers is the lack of the need for self-administration. An administrator is provided with an FTP connection used to upload files and access to a pre-installed CMS system.
FOR WHAT PURPOSES CAN I USE CMS HOSTING?
This kind of hosting service is perfect for web pages and sites of various sizes that work using WordPress, Drupal, Joomla and others. CMS today is perhaps the best choice for people who do not have administrator skills and just want to develop their own website, without being distracted by solving all kinds of auxiliary tasks.
THE MAIN FUNCTIONS OF THE SERVICE
CMS is a specialized software installed on the server and performing two key functions:
- display of web pages to the user (the site is formed at the time of the user’s request on the fly using a specific template, design and content);
- simplification of the site management process for the owner (to publish new pages, news, videos and links, you do not need any special skills).
FEATURES OF CMS HOSTING FOR THE SITE
The main feature of CMS hosting is the lack of a website as a set of pages. When using this service, there is a separate design and a set of content – text, pictures, files with archives and all kinds of documents. The site is created for the user directly during the request. In addition, with the help of Content Management Software the user can see not only publicly available data, but also unique information, for example, a personal basket of an online store.
CMS generates pages for users at a tremendous speed, while simultaneously protecting data from dishonest users, spam filtering and a large number of additional background processes that are simply not visible to ordinary users of the page and even its owner.
CMS BENEFITS FOR WEBSITE OWNERS
Content Management Software greatly facilitates the creation of a site for ordinary people who do not have programming skills. This technology makes it possible for anyone who wants to do without writing any program code independently, and create a site, actually assembling it from ready-made modules.
To edit any page, the administrator can use an intuitive visual editor with which formatting text, inserting links and images becomes the most simple process. In addition, there is no need to learn programming to use the site editor.
