Joomla! is a Content Management System

Joomla! is a Content Management System, also called a CMS for short.

A CMS is a system for managing website content, sometimes also referred to as a DYNAMIC website.

Reason: to distinguish it from a  traditional STATIC website.

A traditional website is comprised of ONE part (a set of files).

On the other hand, a CMS is comprised of TWO parts (a set of files AND a database) each sitting on a separate server.
