    Hey Guys,

    I'm looking to move my main company website (www.capp-ware.com) to a CMS based system to make it more professional and easier to manage.
    I don't mind shelling out a few bucks for something, but free is always good in my books too.

    I need something that can easily advertise services and products.

    So, basically, if you look at my website the way it is now, something that will be able to work in a similar fashion. Something that works with PHP and MySQL would be the transition even easier.

    I found this list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_content_management_systems#PHP_2, but it is rather daunting considering how many of them are out there.


    Suggestions?

    Hi,

    For maintaining a small site such are yours I would recommend www.cmsmadesimple.org. I have used this on a few small sites in the past.

    Both Drupal and Joomla are good, but far more powerful. But would be inefficient for your needs due to being more complex to manage and configure.

    Cheers, Nick

    Hey, one OT. These prices include software price or just the service charge? :D

    Thanks

    Oh ok, yes, the prices listed on my website is what I actually charge. If they want to purchase a software license on top of that, they can, but if not, I'll use available free tools to clean up their systems.

    Thanks. :)

    Sorry to be curious as there is no concept of such services here, so I am asking. You mean malware prevention will be done by free AV/ AM software in that case?

    Correct. If said customer doesn't want to pay for software, we will install a few free ones to try and keep their system clean. We give them the options and let them choose. We'll recommend things like Avast, SpywareBlaster, ZoneAlarm, SuperAntispyware, etc..
