Joomla! is the very popular, easy to use, stable and secure free software powering millions of websites.
Joomla! is an award-winning content management system (CMS) that enables us to quickly & easily build dynamic websites at affordable rates.
Many aspects, including its power, ease-of-use, rich features and extensibility have made Joomla! one of the most popular website software available. As of March, 2017 Joomla! has been downloaded over 80 million times! Joomla! runs more than 3% of the internet with a CMS market share of more than 9%.
Best of all, Joomla! is an open source solution that is 100% free to use regardless of your implementation, thanks to its non-corporate roots and volunteer-driven support structure. There are few bills the Joomla project needs to pay to keep up and running, and everyone that contributes to its development does so out of a passion for creating something that truly meets the needs of sites both large and small. The Joomla! community is vibrant, global, friendly, helpful, large, growing and awesome! Hundreds of developers have been improving Joomla! since the first version was released in 2005. This immense effort has made Joomla! very popular, easy to use, stable, secure and constantly being improved.
The core Joomla! software handles all the complicated functionality, greatly simplifying the process of setting up a website. This allows us to quickly build a website for you, resulting in much lower development costs. Once the website is completely set up we are able to turn it over to you. With a little orientation and training you can easily manage site content yourself. And that’s what clients are always asking for. Of course, if you’re too busy or not interesting in updating your own content, we are happy to do it for you. But it’s your choice.
Joomla's powerful application framework makes it possible for developers to create powerful and sophisticated add-ons that extend the power of Joomla. There are nearly 8,000 pre-built Joomla! extensions that can provide just about any functionality you desire to customize your site and fit your specific needs. There are many free extensions and reasonably-priced commercial extensions offering even more features and support.
Extension functionality runs the full gamut of anything you can think of. If you’ve seen it on the internet, there’s probably an extension available to do it for you.
