The modern way to create a website is using a CMS (Content Management System)

A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your Web site in a database, much like your local public library keeps track of books and stores them. Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don't have to.

The two main CMS systems are Joomla & Wordpress both of which are excellent.

Dont worry though you wont need any technical skill or knowlede to have a Joomla or Wordpress website just MyAnt! 

AntCharacter2We can set up your webspace, install your CMS and create your website all for £199, and afterwards we can even show you how to keep your own website up to date.

WordPress is a powerful personal publishing platform, and it comes with a great set of features designed to make your experience as a publisher on the Internet as easy, pleasant and appealing as possible.

WordPress started in 2003 with a single bit of code to enhance the typography of everyday writing and with fewer users than you can count on your fingers and toes. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.

WordPress started as just a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as full content management system and so much more through the thousands of plugins, widgets, and themes, WordPress is limited only by your imagination.

Plugins can extend WordPress to do almost anything you can imagine. In the directory you can find, download, rate, and comment on all the best plugins the WordPress community has to offer. At the time of writing there are 16,781 plugins available for Wordpress.

MyAnt recomends Wordpress for less complicated websites where the main purpose is either a news or blog.

Wordpress plugins can add lots of additions:

  • Youtube videos
  • Facebook
  • Linkedin
  • MySpace
  • Google Maps

And much much more
