What is a headless CMS?

A headless CMS is a content management system that provides a way to author content, but instead of having your content coupled to a particular output (like web page rendering), it provides your content as data over an API.

Why choose headless CMS?

Once a change in the CMS is made, a new build of your site will be triggered and then deployed as static assets.

Here are the main benefits:

Faster performance

  • Highly performant websites using a modern tech stack.

More secure

  • No need to worry about server or database vulnerabilities.

Less expensive

  • Hosting of static files are cheap or even free.

Better developer experience

  • Front end developers can focus on the front end, without being tied to a monolithic architecture. This usually means quicker and more focused development.

Scalability, SEO friendly

  • If your product suddenly goes viral and has many active users, Your hosting options are unlimited with a headless CMS and deployment environments as well.


  • APIs aren’t just ready to talk to any existing software or device, they’re prepared to speak to any new device or channel that emerges. Thus, your content will remain future-proof, no matter what innovative device next hits the market.

Headless options:

  • Headless WordPress
  • Strapi
  • Contentful and many more ..


The future of CMS is quickly moving away from traditional, database-driven systems and toward API-driven headless.
