Most of the frameworks I've used are exactly what you have described.
They make it a lot easier to build a website from the ground up. You
don't have to worry about the things you listed. All you have to do is
create your controllers, models, views, etc and you've got a website.
You can focus on the actual content and functionality of the site
without having to worry about all of the base classes and functions.
