How to Get Started with Joomla
- Login to your cPanel control panel.
- Scroll down to the “Software/Services” section.
- Click the “Joomla” icon to install.
- Joomla is very powerful.
- Joomla is an award-winning content management system (CMS) that enables you to build web sites and powerful online applications.
- Joomla offers an increased ability to customize web sites to fit particular needs of virtually any kind of online business.
- With Joomla, there’s a core program, templates and thousands of features, called extensions. Joomla extensions are the equivalent of WordPress plugins. They’re pre-programmed features divided into three main groups based on functionality: modules, plugins and components.
- If you’re new to site building, Joomla has a very simple, user-friendly, intuitive interface that simplifies site construction. However, Joomla, itself, doesn’t offer themes and templates, though these are available from independent programmers, usually at a small cost.
- As a content management system, Joomla handles text using a WYSIWYG editor that makes uploading a breeze so, if you envision a web site with a lot of text, or text that changes frequently, Joomla’s text management system is something you’ll appreciate when there’s other work to be done.

You may already have a website on Joomla so you may be familiar with Joomla Templates and other features. Joomla is a CMS (content management system) that many site builders use to create web sites in much the same way you (and thousands of others) build a blog.
Joomla is easy to install. In fact, sync up occurs on download so you’re ready to roll as soon as you click the “Finish” button. This is a big plus if time is a critical factor in the launch of your site. Joomla developers offer numerous Templates, or templates, to simplify site creation. But unlike straight-up template sites, Joomla developers have created more than 15,000 plugins – pre-programmed features, like an email module or an easy-to-use checkout, to simplify the sales and purchase processes. Of the big three CMS’s (Content Management Systems – WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal), Joomla is not as easy to learn as WordPress, but it’s extremely flexible and a real time-saver with large websites. See what our Joomla web hosting can do for your business.

Content management system (CMS)
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 Joomla hosting is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don’t have to.
