Charm City Websites is dedicated to providing quality driven, feature rich websites without the cost of custom development through the use of specialized content management software; previously reserved for enterprises with deep pockets.

How we build your site

Charm City Websites deploys a content management system (CMS) as a framework for your website. A content management system (CMS) allows for easy adding/editing of content using an online editor, plug and play features (pages, ecommerce/stores, forms, blogs, photo galleries, etc.) without the need for custom development (expensive). As a result of content management system code being used by millions of people, the code for your website is significantly more secure than that of a custom developed website and at a significant fraction of the price.

Using a CMS allows for easy updates/facelifts later and the ability to add new plug-and-play features quickly and without custom development costs. Charm City Websites prefers to use the Drupal content management system (see here who uses Drupal: /drupal.com/showcases), one of the top five content management systems used in the world today. It is used for both small personal websites, all the way up to powerful, full featured company and government (highly secure) sites. It is also FREE to use; open-source. As a result, out of the box, you will get access to thousands of solid, secure features if you chose to expand what your site can do.

The bottom line here is that instead of charging you for custom development of a website (usually thousands to tens of thousands or more for larger enterprises), Charm City Websites will only be charging to setup the look and feel of your site (referred to as a “theme”), add your content and media (no programming needed, the CMS does all that), and integrate plug-and-play features into the site. You will be pleasantly surprised by the low out of pocket expense for a custom, powerful, fully scalable website that meets your company’s needs.
