Now that you’ve registered your domain, you need to install a content management system (CMS) to help you create your website. If you visit your domain, a welcome page appears, but no other content is present. This is because your domain doesn’t have a CMS installed.

A CMS is an application that helps you build, publish, and maintain a website. There are hundreds of CMS applications available online, each with slightly different functions. A quick look in the Web Applications section of your cPanel reveals CMS applications such as Drupal, Known, and Omeka.

If you’re just starting out, we recommend using WordPress for your website. WordPress is one of the most popular CMS applications in the world (an estimated 25.8% of ALL websites use it), and it’s a platform that makes creating a blog or website easy. In fact, the MU Sites Support website was built using WordPress. You can choose a different CMS later; just uninstall WordPress and choose a different CMS for your website.
