Why Choose Contentful?

There are lots of reasons we love Contentful. Its cloud-based infrastructure ensures high availability, scalability, and performance—you get a smooth and responsive experience for both content editors and end-users.

Here are more reasons why we like it:

  1. Multi-channel Content Delivery

    Contentful has been built around a headless CMS architecture and API-first approach and provides SDKs in most programming languages. This allows the separation of content management from content delivery and provides maximum flexibility to use any front-end technologies and frameworks.

  2. Flexibility

    The platform also offers a flexible content model that can accommodate any type of content, including text, images, videos, and other multimedia assets. This allows you to customize your content types and fields, and tailor them to specific needs.

  3. Scalability

    Contentful’s scalability is unrivaled, ensuring your digital points of presence can handle large spikes in usage and remain available when needed (it provides a 99.95% uptime SLA). It’s even been used to power Super Bowl ads, EuroVision’s digital festival, and Black Friday sales for top retailers!

  4. Enterprise-Grade Security and Compliance

    Contentful takes security seriously, with robust measures in place to protect your data. We’re talking features like granular access controls, encryption at rest and in transit, and compliance with industry standards and regulations. Contentful also offers a 99.95% uptime SLA, ensuring that businesses can rely on the platform for mission-critical content management tasks.

Contentful FAQ

Is Contentful a CMS?

Yes, Contentful is a CMS.  But it has been built “headless” which means it only handles the backend of a website or other digital point of presence, so the presentation/display layer needs to be created separately. This gives a lot of flexibility in what Contentful can be used to power, including everything from websites to mobile apps and digital kiosks.  The front end can be developed in just about any platform or framework you like (including PHP, .Net, Java, Python, React, Angular, Next.js, Vue.js, etc.).

Should I use a headless CMS or traditional CMS?

It really depends on what you’re trying to achieve. A traditional CMS is usually the better option for organizations with one point of presence (their website) and for smaller businesses that don’t have the resources and expertise to develop a headless solution effectively.

A headless CMS is needed when additional flexibility is required, such as managing content across a number of different digital points of presence (websites, mobile apps, digital kiosks, digital billboards, etc.).  For example, if your website shares content with your mobile app, then headless is the way to go.

Does Contentful CMS have ecommerce functionality?

Yes, it does. Contentful can be used to build out ecommerce sites and apps and is used to power sales for many large brands.  E-commerce functionality can be built right on top of Contentful or by integrating with other solutions like Shopify.

Does Contentful backup my data?

All content and media on Contentful are backed nightly to two physically separate data centers within Amazon Web Services on two different continents (us-east-1 and eu-west-1). The Content Delivery API (CDA) can also be used to export all of the data and back it up offsite if desired.

Is content encrypted in Contentful?

All content on Contentful is encrypted during delivery by default. It can also be sent unencrypted, if you choose to (e.g. if all of the data is public, this can be done in order to improve performance).

Can I self host Contentful?

No, Contentful cannot be self-hosted. It’s a cloud-based web service hosted by Contentful on Amazon Web Services.

Is Contentful secure?

Absolutely! Contentful is extremely secure. Customizable permissions control who has the ability to edit or view your content, so only the people you assign permissions to have the ability to do so. In addition, your content is only accessible to applications and websites that you give your API key to.

Furthermore, the content is replicated between multiple servers in the backend and is backed up daily, with the transmission of content being encrypted with SSL.
