Who's Ready for the Joomla Boom?
The Web has an excess of solutions to help anyone, regardless of their tech-savvy, build and manage a website. And now, there's one more - and you may already know it.
Popular open-source content management system Joomla recently announced the launch of a new service at Joomla.com that will enable users to create hosted Joomla websites. The offering, operated in partnership with Web hosting company SiteGround, won't be suited for the more serious Internet professional, but it does provide a nice introduction to the very powerful CMS if you have not yet been exposed to the platform.
The Joomla.com service will provide all the basic standard publishing features of Joomla! but with limited expandability. The services includes a set of pre-selected templates along with some useful pre-installed extensions including Google Analytics, Google Maps integration, Disqus powered comments and social media sharing.
