Orbit CMS

Orbit CMS Technologies

Orbit uses some of the latest technology available to get the most powerful engine behind our Content Management System. Designed as both a dynamic site building tool and a day-to-day content management system, Orbit is built using industry standard PHP/MySQL technology. Orbit can be implemented on any Linux Hosting platform with PHP/MySQL installed, with all site-related information securely stored in a MySQL database.

The beauty of this approach is that all of the technologies we employ are Open Source. This means that we use languages such as PHP and the MySQL database which are freely available on the internet.

  • PHP is a widely-used scripting language that is especially suited for Web development and can be embedded into HTML.
  • MySQL: The MySQL database server is the world's most popular open source database. With more than five million active installations, MySQL features as the core of many high-volume, business-critical applications. Customers such as Yahoo!, Google, Cisco, HP and NASA use MySQL's high performance, reliable database management software to power large Web sites, business-critical enterprise applications and packaged software applications.
  • JavaScript: Originally developed by Netscape, JavaScript makes it possible to enhance web pages with interactive functionality and provide your visitors with a richer user experience.
  • HTML / XML / XHTML are the foundation mark-up languages of the Internet. Apex Internet is constantly striving to write cleaner and better code, while keeping abreast of HTML developments. For this reason we use XML where possible. Our core code is all XHTML 1.0 compliant.
  • CSS: Cascading Style Sheets complement XHTML with style sheet based layouts. www.w3.org/Style/CSS


Site integration is currently only available through Apex Internet Ltd. Once Orbit has been integrated to your site, expansion and management of a site is easy and intuitive using the 'MS Office-like' Administration Interface.

  • The templates functions make it easy to quickly embed standard web elements. Once a new static HTML template is ready, it takes approximately 30 minutes - 1 hour to integrate it with the system. If you are familiar with HTML, you can also create your own templates.
  • If you want to further expand the Orbit CMS functionality, you can add on your own extensions or modules as required.
  • Websites of medium complexity can be fully integrated with Orbit CMS in approximately 2 days (including uploading of the site content).
