ColdFusion Webpage Template File

CFM is an acronym for ColdFusion Markup. Files that contain the .cfm file extension contain webpage files that consist of the ColdFusion Markup Language.

The ColdFusion software, which creates the ColdFusion Markup files, was initially created by the Allaire company. However, it was later sold to Macromedia, and then in 2005, the ColdFusion software was bought by Adobe.

Webpage files that contain the ColdFusion Markup Language are used to create a variety of different online applications. CFML is a server-side language, much like PHP, but unlike PHP, CFML is not an open-source code. It is a commercially-sold programming language.
