HTML is the standard markup language for creating Web pages and stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. HTML describes the structure of Web pages using markup.
However, when it comes to building your website all you really want to do is to be able to upload your content and make it work, not dabble in all of the code associated with your site. That’s where Content Management Systems make it easy.
What is Content Management System
A Content Management System or CMS according to Oxford Dictionaries is “a system designed to manage the content of a website or other electronic resource that is used collaboratively by a number of people”, a system that is very common now a day in the World Wide Web.

Although we specialize in these two types of CMS, we also work with sites for other Content Management Systems out there. For instance, if you have a website that is mainly structured through Drupal (your About, Landing Page, Contact Page, ect) but have your online store managed through Shopify. We can still quickly modify and work with your content so that it satisfieds your business or personal needs. That way if your site is structured through two different Content Management Systems there is no interuption.
