Though the term Content Management System seems to be newer in the field of web development, but the idea is quite older. During earlier times, web developers were least interested in finding CMS because they believed to generate a unique code for their websites. But now the drift has been altered. Most of the web developers now prefer to reuse the already prepared code in their websites. The reason for opting reusable codes is that now a days customers stress more on the front end attractiveness of the website. They want more and more features to be embedded in the website.

The internet has emerged from a long way. Internet as the name suggests is the interconnecting network. A network allows the communication between different computers. During late 60’s, the communication between the computers were limited to only US Military and defence department. However, due to the commercialization of this technology by Microsoft after three decades, the advancement in the internet is unstoppable since then. When talking about internet, one word which comes in our mind initially is web (website). The earlier days of the web were the most cumbersome days for the web programmers or developers. Though, at that time, simple designs were offered but, in order to make a very simple static website, the web programmers had to write very long and complex codes. It is well known quotation that need is the mother of invention.
