Swiftly embrace UX-focused websites, get a headless WordPress site in 15 days
A traditional WordPress CMS platform connects the backend with the frontend of the website, called the “head.” The frontend stores all the content and databases. The head is, therefore, responsible for demonstrating your site to visitors. The backend, whereas not just stores content but also provides a platform for design and customization of the website. The content is also created on the backend of a traditional CMS platform. The management of content and other functionalities also takes place in the backend.
The headless WordPress CMS, or decouple CMS, is fundamentally different from a traditional CMS in terms of architecture. The headless CMS architecture separates the frontend from the backend, splitting the site into two virtually independent systems. While one system creates, stores, and manages content the other presents the data to end-users on UIs like a website, mobile app, or an IoT device. Developers use a RESTful API to connect the backend with the front of a headless WordPress website.
