Joomla is a Content Management System (CMS) that enables people to build websites and online applications, and catalyst2 make it easy to integrate Joomla into your hosting account. With a CMS system like Joomla, you can easily keep track of all the content in your website, including text, images, video, music or documents. Joomla has emerged as one of the most popular of the options for website software today, largely due to its user-friendly nature and its extensibility. It is an open-source solution, meaning its code is open for modification by users and developers alike.
What makes Joomla popular?
Amongst the popular features of Joomla is its ability to allow users to manage content updates. Fresh content can be easily created using the intuitive editor, and the placement and updates of all content is very straightforward, even where images are included. Our Joomla hosting incorporates pre-installed templates which you can easily customise to give your website the look you want.
Joomla is packed with great features. For example, as it is an open-source tool, there is a huge number of free plug-ins you can make use of to help enhance the SEO of your website and rank higher in the search engines. When you combine the power of Joomla with the ultra-reliable hosting of catalyst2, which guarantees 100% uptime, you can rest assured that both Google and your potential customers will have no difficulty seeing your site.
