Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the difference between a headless CMS and a decoupled CMS?

    A headless CMS separates the back end and front end completely, with no predefined presentation layer. It focuses on content management and delivers content via an API and does not handle its exposure. Instead, developers have the freedom to determine how the content should be presented. In contrast, a decoupled CMS has a connected front end but offers the option to detach it. It prepares content for presentation and pushes it to the application’s front end.

  • What are the advantages of using a headless CMS over a traditional CMS?

    Headless CMS offers greater flexibility, scalability, and multi-channel content management capabilities. Unlike traditional CMS, which has a fixed set of functionalities, headless CMS allows for easy scaling, integration with various platforms, and administration of content across apps and websites.

  • In which scenarios can headless CMS be used?

    Headless CMS is ideal for high-performance “Jamstack” sites, web applications, and integration with static site generators like Gatsby and Next. It is compatible with modern JavaScript frameworks such as React, Angular, and Vue JS. Additionally, headless CMS can serve as an e-commerce backend, facilitating integration with systems like Shopify.

  • How do I choose the right headless CMS for my needs?

    Choosing the right headless CMS depends on your specific requirements. Consider factors such as desired content structures, the need for hosting and maintenance services, and your own technical capabilities. If you find it challenging to navigate through the features and make an informed decision, we are here to provide comprehensive guidance tailored to your needs.
