What is a Content Management System

A Content Management System (or CMS for short) is a web software that allows us to create a website and manage its content.

CMS is a requirement for dynamic websites, where content needs frequent updating. 

We Work With WordPress

At Bissesar Technologies, our choice of CMS is WordPress.

WordPress is a freely available CMS and powers millions of websites around the world, including this one. It contains many plugins that extend its core functionality and allow it to be used in a lot of different situations.

Types of Websites Possible With WordPress

WordPress has the flexibility to adapt to every need of a typical website. When we use plugins to extend its functionality, the possibilities are virtually endless.

Business Websites

WordPress can be used to build standard and highly-customised business websites. It can display many types of content ad can be customised to meet the requirements of the business and the website that is desired.

E-commerce Websites

When combined with the WooCommerce plugin, WordPress becomes a powerful and flexible way to sell products and manage the entire order fulfillment process. WooCommerce is a free plugin that is developed by Automattic – the parent organisation that develops and maintains WordPress.

An e-commerce website built on WordPress and WooCommerce can then be connected to payment gateways such as Stripe, PayPal, and many others to automate the checkout process. With the availability of more plugins, creating and managing an e-commerce website with WordPress and WooCommerce is very rewarding.

Portfolio Websites

WordPress is also an excellent choice for professionals and businesses that wish to display their portfolio online. It is already being used by millions of freelancers, such as, photographers and graphic designers, and other professionals around the world.

Custom post types with WordPress expand its capabilities and allow for the display of case studies and image galleries.

WordPress Pricing

The WordPress script itself is free and licenced under GPLv2. It does not cost anything to download and use WordPress. When WordPress websites are being developed, costs are incurred from:

  •  Some premium plugin and themes
  • Charges of hiring a developer or development team to customise the website.
You can read more about the WordPress licence here.

As mentioned above, when we develop a WordPress website, we charge fees to the client for the above, and for installing and tuning WordPress to run smoothly in the hosting environment that is available or selected.
