There’s more than one way to build a website. In recent years, more and more businesses have turned toward Content-Management-Systems which allow them to easily publish content to their own website on a regular basis. Thanks to CMS, our clients don’t have to worry about calling our Web Development team every time they want to make a tiny change to their website’s content.
Joomla web development is one of the most popular approaches to CMS, and we’ve been using the Joomla Content Management S ystem for our clients since its inception in 2005. It has matured into a stable, robust platform with numerous features, making it ideal for most standard corporate websites.
But what is Joomla, exactly? And what can it do for your business? We’ll tackle the basics below and reveal why Joomla web development might the best solution for your company’s website.
What is Joomla Web Development?
Joomla is a Content Management System, or CMS. You might have come across CMS platforms before. Take WordPress, for example — it’s one of the most widely used CMS services, though its features are simplistic and its security vulnerabilities are endless.
Joomla is a safer, more sophisticated and more reliable approach to CMS, better suited for businesses than is WordPress, in our opinion. WordPress is always an option, of course, but we believe that Joomla provides better features and greater benefits when compared to WordPress.
From a techy standpoint, Joomla is open-source, PHP-based and works with the open source database, MySQL. In layman’s terms, that means Joomla is easy to use, widely compatible and constantly being improved for better security and performance. These are the assets you look for when selecting the right foundation for a new website’s development.
