The article discusses content management systems (CMS) in relation to Internet services. When CMSs are used, typing content into a file with HTML tags is not required. CMS produces a Web page on the fly that looks just like ones handcrafted by humans. A Web page generator takes an index into the database, retrieves the content for that index and uses it to populate the Web pages going to be created. This is a good solution for Web sites which have lots of frequently changing items without a huge amount of unique content. For instance, online catalogs might contain a stock number, a description and a price for each item. It is useless to create a separate HTML file for each item. Instead entry should be made to database and then just extract these items and display them on a preformatted Web layout. CMS are particularly helpful in uniform resource locator which consists of the name of the Web page generator followed by a parameter listing the database index. Most organizations that are using CMSs find that viral marketing is an important part of their business strategy.
