The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS-02) is a particle physics experiment installed on board the International Space Station (ISS). It has been operating since May 2011 and is expected to continue through 2028 or beyond. The AMS collaboration seeks to store, manage and present its research results as well as details about the detector and operations. An open-source content management framework is utilized as the platform to build the website. This platform allows management of a variety of information, such as institutes in the collaboration, physics results, publications, academic events, etc. This note discusses the motivation, strategy, infrastructure, web design techniques, custom modules, data sharing plan, and day-to-day operation. The resulting website is located at https://ams02.space.
