CMS (Content Management System) Websites
Hot Ant builds 2 general types of website - those with a built-in content management system, and those without. Content management systems allow you to login to your site and edit your content.
The Hot Ant CMS of choice is Joomla. Joomla is an open source system that is free to incorporate into websites and has no ongoing costs. This means that once your site is built you don't need to worry about paying any extra maintenance fees.
Content management system sites require a lot more contruction time and allow for significant functionality advances that are either not possible or not easy with a standard HTML website. It is important to consider, prior to starting on a new site whether you will need to regularly update your site yourself, and whether there are likely to be significant enhancements added to your site in the years to come. If so, you may want to invest in one of our Joomla CMS websites.
