Butter provides a simple and smooth interface for editing, scheduling, and publishing your content. You get all of the dashboards and fields you’re used to, with none of the clutter.
If you’ve used WordPress or another CMS you’ll be able to pick up Butter instantly, with no additional training required.
See how Butter enables your marketing team to take control of their content across every channel.
Butter gives you control over meta tags and on-page SEO ranking factors, without getting a developer involved.
Modern SEO is all about page performance and user experience, and it’s no secret that older CMSs have trouble keeping up.
Our Heroku WordPress alternative is built on a modern API. Your content is served over a globally distributed CDN, making your site blazing fast.
Managing a collection of themes, plugins, and add-ons is tricky, time-consuming, and expensive.
Butter is a truly zero-maintenance solution. After your development team completes the initial configuration, their work is done. There are no versions, no security patches, and no forced upgrades. Never.
Deprecated plugins and templates force you to rebuild content and entire pages that aren't on your roadmap, costing you time and money. With ButterCMS, your designers get full creative control over branding and UX, and your marketing team only rebuilds content when they want to.
Build your marketing stack using only the best of breed tools, alongside ButterCMS as your best of breed CMS.
Consistent customer happiness is our #1 priority, and it shows in our customer reviews. We work with you from day 1 of your free trial to get you up and running quickly so your marketers can do their jobs efficiently, and your developers can get back to more important tasks.

Before ButterCMS, our dev team spent a lot of time in WordPress creating pages, adjusting fields, and pulling data through the APIs. What I really like about ButterCMS is that our marketing team managed to learn ButterCMS really quickly, and now they’re able to create pages and collections on their own. It saves a lot of time and allows our developers to focus on actual development. Zoran Lorkovic Vice President, Engineering Huckletree

ButterCMS is an API-based headless CMS. We're a hosted service and we maintain all the infrastructure. We play nicely with an expanding list of leading technologies, including:
What kind of database can I use?
No database required! We're a SaaS CMS or CaaS. You simply call our Content API from your app. We host and maintain all of the CMS infrastructure.
Do you host my templates?
Unlike CMSs you might be used to, we don't control or host any of your templates. The design of your app (HTML + CSS) lives in your application along side the rest of your app. Your application calls our Content API and we return your content in JSON format. You can then render this content in any way you'd like.
Can I import my content?
Yep. To import existing content from another platform, simply send us an email.
How do you compare to WordPress?
In short, we offer all the same easy-to-use editing capabilities of WordPress but are significantly easier for developers to setup and maintain. This means you spend less time working on your CMS and more time focusing on things important to your business.
Can I self host Butter?
No, we're a SaaS CMS or CaaS. You simply call our Content API from your app. We host and maintain all of the CMS infrastructure.
