Are you going to build a new CMS web-site? Well, if your answer is “Yes”, we recommend you to have a look at the following list of points and questions that can help you. Of course, you do not have to take care of all the things written below right now. This is just a concise plan for you to successfully create a CMS-based web-site.
Do you already have your own registered domain name? If so, you will need a username and password for your personal account. Remember – you and not your web-site developer must have the keys for your domain names. By the way, obviously it should be your credit card listed on file with the registrar. If it is not yours, you will not be able to obtain the password after losing it.
Migrating an existing web-site
In case you already have a working web-site, you will probably wish to “migrate” some or even all your existing content right into the new Internet resource. This is quite a sensible and time-saving idea. However, migration usually brings an unpleasant set of challenges and hassles. But you can actually make it easier by preparing yourself. For instance, you have to estimate roughly how many pieces of content you need to bring to the new place with you.
Choosing your new CMS
Do you have any experience if working with a CMS (for example, on a blog)? If you do, how comfortable are you with some basic tasks like using common HTML tags or posting content? Just understand what qualities your new CMS should have and then choose one of the options. We recommend you to look for extra information on the most popular choices like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla.
