List of CMS Providers

List of content management systems - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of notable content management systems that are used to organize and facilitate collaborative content creation. Many of them are built on top ...

Best Open Source Content Management Systems

Choose among the most popular CMS software

Creating a successful website is now easier than ever due to the Content Management System (CMS). With CMS you can
Joomla CMS

create and publish web content, 
present it to your audience, and 
archivate it safely.

CMS helps you keep your website

well organized and comprehensive,
increases the data security, and
reduces the site maintenance costs.

In this manner CMS is an outstanding solution for your small or middle sized business as well as for your personal websites.

What exactly is a CMS?

CMS is a multifunctional application. It is capable to create a powerful portal website in a matter of minutes and it has wide supporting community. The CMS portals offer intuitive administration and dispose of detailed tutorials. CMS consists of a content management application which enables the management and modification of content without advanced webmaster knowledge, and a content delivery application, that uses new information to update the website.

In this article we have selected some of the most popular open source, free to download and use CMS tools. You can choose any of them for your website depending on your particular needs or organizational requirements...

4 Best Content Management Systems

I have tried 22 different CMS's in the past 6 years. I have narrowed down the absolute best of the best to these 4.

Enterprise level - Dont attempt to play with these unless you are an experienced webmaster/coder. You can build some of the most powerful sites on the internet with them, but you need to know what you are doing.

The 2 most powerful open source cms's out there are: Krang and Bricolage.

Bricolage powers sites like Entertainment Tonight, The World Health Organization, The Ad Council, MacWorld, MacCentral, and PlaylistMag.


Another beautiful site made with it: http://www.grist.org/

Bricolage can be found here: http://www.bricolage.cc/

Krang is simply amazing as well. Powering sites like New York Magazine (New York Metro), Motortrend, and Import Tuner Magazine. Krand is also used to power all 220 websites in the PriMedia Corporation portfolio of news and magazine websites.

Commercial and Portal Sites:

For commercial sites I only use CivicSpace. Its the same cms Mozilla.org and SpreadFireFox.com use to power their sites. For ease of use and stunning array of tools, its absolutely perfect. Also it is an absolute dream for SEO minded builders.

For portals I recommend nothing besides CPG-Nuke's newest creation called DragonFly. DragonFly easily blows away Mambo, Xoops, Typo3, PHP-Nuke, Siteframe, Drupal, Geeklog, PostNuke, ezPublish and Movable Type combined.

DragonFly's main benefits:

- disgunstingly fast and simple to use, create, and setup
- uses less then half the bandwidth then most of the CMS's I listed above.
- Took 2 of the best open source projects online (PHPBB and Coppermine Gallery) and fully integrated them into the core of the basic DragonFly install.
- the most SEO friendly CMS I have ever used. Puts Mambo and all the others to shame as far as SEO goes.

CPG-NUKE DragonFly is found here: http://www.cpgnuke.com/

Obviously though, these are just my opinions.
