How To Create A WordPress Website

Choose the right platform for your website

What is a Content Management System?

A content management system (CMS) in simple terms, is a platform of sorts or a mechanism which permits you to create your content and publish.

It is software that is installed on your host’s server. Your host provider will likely have a one-click installation process to help you get your CMS installed. Once it is installed, you can log in to your site as the admin and add photos, text, and other content. You can use the content you’ve added to create blog posts and other forms of content like a product page or display a work portfolio on your website.
