Content Management System (CMS) Hosting
SORRY, this webpage is still under construction.
Web "Content Management Systems" (CMS) are an easy method of constructing, hosting, and maintaining a website without the need to learn HyperText Markup Language (HTML) coding or buy Web design software such as Dreamweaver. The AWA7.org website that you are now visting is hosted on a Content Management System for ease of construction and maintenance. Even if an existing website is classic-hosted, there may be advantages in re-constructing it onto a CMS, also known as a "migration" to a CMS.
