What CMS is this?

With so many CMS' and Website builders out there, it's only natural that you will encounter lots of websites on a daily basis and wonder if they were custom built or built with a known CMS. The amount of times people in the digital arena ask themselves "What CMS is this?" or "How did they build this site?" is not a small number. Now with our algorithm CMS detector, we can regocnize (some would say guess) 46 CMS', frameworks and website builders. Now when you find a cool site that you want to know how it was built, just come here and add the URL to the search bar and we will do the rest.

CMS Checker - how do we do it?

Detecting what CMS is being used on a given website can be simple and sometimes it can be daunting. A lot of website builders use a "generator meta tag" which makes it really easy to detect which CMS is being used. Here is an example of such a tag: <meta name="generator" content="WordPress 4.0.1" />
Another option is to detect code patterns that are used on every website built by a given CMS. A lot of "non open source" systems call Javascript or CSS files from the same place which also makes the task of dection pretty easy. Detecting such a CMS is pretty easy. Another option would be to check the "headers" being sent. There is usually a giveaway hidden in there somewhere.

There are a few other options that can be used but these are the main giveaways that help us run the CMS Detector.

Framework Detector

Not only can we detect a large amount of CMS' and website builders, we can also detect a few frameworks such as Laravel and Codeignitor. So now when you use our CMS detector tool, not only will you get the best CMS and website builder results, we take it a step further with our framework detector abilities.
