Open source and Modern technologies

HostCMS is delivered with an open source code and works with PHP 5.3.x — 5.6.x, 7.0.x — 7.2.x. We use new solutions such as ORM (ActiveRecord), QueryBuilder, MVC, and a flexible event system.

System requirements

The strong point of HostCMS is that the content management system does not require specialized hosting or dedicated servers. The system demonstrates excellent working results on shared hosting.

Separation of presentation and content

HostCMS is based on XML/XSLT technologies, also we support Smarty templates. Thanks to separation of structured data (XML) and their external presentation (XSL-templates) the system gives flexible opportunities of integration. The same data can be treated by different templates in different cases and have various external presentation.

Checking correctness of the entered data

The renewed system interface checks correctness of data during data entry and informs about the necessity to correct in case of an error and prohibits data insertion.


The new Edit-in-Place solution allows data editing right on the site without transfer to the backend.

A double click on the highlighted field in the backend switches on the editing mode.
