Modern Technology, Fully Supported
Delivering the best of open-source without the chaos
Webvanta Cloud CMS
Webvanta's Cloud CMS is a powerful, flexible content management system. Unlike most other systems of comparable capability, the Webvanta Cloud CMS is a managed, hosted solution, so you never need to deal with servers, backups, or software updates.
We've designed the system to give tremendous flexibility to designers and developers who want full control over each site's appearance and functions.
At the same time, the form-based content editing capabilities make it easy for anyone to maintain the website's content, using only a browser.
Cloud CMS Technology
The system hosts about 400 sites currently, some of which have tens of thousands of pages.
We've picked the best open-source software, added our proprietary application layer, and operate it on a redundant, high-end set of servers.
The Right Tool for the Job
We firmly believe, based on six years of experience and hundreds of sites, that the Webvanta Cloud CMS is an outstanding tool for building sites that fall in its sweet spot.
So what is that sweet spot? Any site with a substantial amount of content, and which needs to be updated regularly.
For content-rich, frequently-updated sites, our Cloud CMS makes life easier for the developer and for the content editors.
We can also provide WordPress sites when a simpler, template-based site is called for.
For ecommerce, depending on the needs of a particular business, we can build a custom store using the Cloud CMS with FoxyCart (or other carts).
The Technical Bits
WebvantaScript, the markup language that Webvanta sites use to retrieve information from the database, were derived from a syntax and parser called Radius tag language, which is part of the Radiant CMS created by John Long. We've also borrowed from Radiant's approach to page construction, using templates, content regions, and snippets.
