Backdrop CMS is built on open source software and the data belongs to you and the code is available for free. At any point, you can export the code, files, and data for your site and move it anywhere you like (or ask us to do this for you).
Backdrop is a Content Management System. A CMS is a database driven website that allows people to log in, and with permission, allows them to edit nearly any page. Backdrop can be used to create almost any type of websites. Use Backdrop CMS for everything from a single-administrator's personal blog site, to a complex, multi-role, business e-commerce platform. Backdrop is the perfect fit for comprehensive non-profit, educational, government or corporate websites.
Our email support desk is free. We'll answer "how to" questions and point you in the right direction to build your own Backdrop CMS site.
24 hour access to our Slack chat channel is available (contact us for details).
