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 frameworks you like (including PHP, .Net, Java, Phython, React, Angular, Next.js, Vue.js, etc).
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.
Yes. Contentful can be used to build out ecommerce sites and apps and is used to power sales for many large brands. Ecommerce funtionality can be built right on top of Contentful or by integrating with other solutions like Shopify.
All content and media on Contentful is backed to nightly to two physically separate data centers within Amazon Web Services on two differnt 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.
All of the 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).
No, Contentful cannot be self hosted. Contentful is a cloud-based web service that is hosted by Contentful on Amazon Web Services.
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 for applications and websites that you give your API key to.
Contentful has very high security and reliability standards. The content is replicated between multiple servers in the backend and is backed up daily. The transmission of content is encrypted with SSL.
