What are Content Management Systems

Content Management Systems (CMS)

All of the websites we design and develop are created with the ability for our clients to add and edit their own text, pictures, media and more through a CMS. We can also set up the website so that you can add new pages to the website yourselves, which we can train you or a staff member to do. At eCentury Website Design, we offer guidance and support as standard and are always only a phone call or click away.

Essential features of our basic CMS include:
