What is a CMS?
A CMS (content management system), as the name implies, is a multifunctional system for organizing and storing content for a website. It's also a very useful tool which allows for anyone with or without programming knowledge to easily create and maintain a website.
Some of the most well-known CMS's available, such as WordPress, Joomla, b2evolution, and Drupal (which are all available as 1-click installs with your InMotion Hosting account), are open source software, which makes them freely available to customize and redistribute. In addition, with a devoted developer community for each, proprietary CMS's can't compete with the numerous resources for new extensions and support that these communities supply. So, if you don't quite have the experience to customize your own CMS extensions, sure thing you'll be likely to find something that's already been made.
Here's a quick guide to these 4 popular CMS's:

Key features:
  • Easy-to-use, turn-key interface
  • Easy to customize
  • Vast online community you can reach out to for support and thousands of plugins and widgets for a wide range of functionality
