Check your website for critical technical issues
Website Tech Stack Components
It takes the CMS Detector tool a few seconds to identify the technologies any website is built with: CMS, programming languages, databases, plugins, widgets, live chats, CDNs, and analytics tools.
To inspect a site, enter its domain name in the input field and click Detect CMS. Our tool will analyze the site’s tech stack and display what cms is used as well as the list of detected components.
What CMS types are out there?
Most CMSs offer pre-built themes and templates that can be used for designing any type of website. However, they largely differ in customization capabilities: open source CMSs allow the site code to be modified by any user, while proprietary CMSs can only be built and maintained by a particular provider.
Some CMSs serve for certain types of websites specifically so when choosing one, consider your niche and business needs.
- Ecommerces. Online retailers of various sizes have a range of ecommerce CMSs to choose from. They offer pre-built product pages, checkout functionalities, and other features specific to online stores. While some CMSs, like Shopify, are suitable for first-time sellers, others, like Magento, work well with experienced ecommerce businesses.
- SMBs. Popular CMSs with out-of-the-box components are usually a great fit for small to medium-sized businesses.
- Blogs. Just like with SMBs, a blogging website will benefit from the simplest in use CMSs like WordPress.
- Large enterprises. If your company has enough technical resources, you can go with highly configurable CMSs like Drupal or Joomla. The use of these CMSs also makes sense if your website stores a lot of data and receives a lot of traffic.

To explore any website’s tech stack, enter its domain name in the input field and click Detect CMS. In a few seconds, the tool will display a list of technologies used on the site.
Our tool scans a website and matches it with data available in open-source databases.
The tool may not detect a CMS for one of the following reasons:
- The site is custom-built and doesn’t use any of the known CMSs.
- The website doesn’t respond to the request.
- The specified domain name or URL does not exist.
Our CMS identifier analyzes one website at a time. The process takes a few seconds. If you want to identify CMSs for several websites, you’ll be able to check them one by one very fast.
