(1) Cost included in web hosting

(2) A content management system allows you to easily update your own website. However, if your content management system isn't Open Source then you may experience a number of problems such as:

  • You could be tied into using a proprietary product
  • If you wish to leave your web host you may lose some website functionality or may even have to totally rebuild your website
  • You may not be able to contract developers outside your web host to develop additional functionality for your website
