There are other content management systems; and each one has its own characteristics.

SPIP is a free software distributed under the General Public License (GPL). SPIP’s requirements in terms of software and hardware are very modest indeed and they are even provided by some free hosting ISPs – or to be extremely brief: PHP + MySQL.
