Content management systems
Content Management Systems (CMS) are used to create websites and publish documents without the user having to know the ins and outs of web development.
Content Management Systems usually require a server to be set up. Before attempting to set up your own, talk to either your Intersect eResearch analyst or our on campus IT support group to discover hosting options available to you.
Wikipedia maintains a comprehensive list of Content Management Systems.
