Joomla is an award-winning content management system (CMS), which enables you to build Web sites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla the most popular Web site software available. Best of all, Joomla is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone. The image to the left is what the Joomla website will look like when you first install it. **NOTE** Joomla is easily installed through your cpanel control panel and is included for free with all hosting accounts.
Joomla has a secure login area where you can manage your Joomla installation. The image to the left is where you will go to login to your Joomla admin area.
A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your Web site, much like your local public library keeps track of books and stores them. Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don’t have to. The image to the left shows you what you will see in the admin area where you have full control how your website will look and also where you can install different Joomla themes and plugins as well.
Joomla is included with all of our hosting accounts and can be installed quickly via either Fantastico or Softaculous from within your cpanel control panel.
There are many free templates available for Joomla not to mention free and paid pluggins to enhance the way your website operates.
