Joomla is an open-source content management system designed for developers with coding experience rather than beginners who are more dependent on website builders for creating web content. With a broad selection of commerce and business add-ons, Joomla works well for companies looking to step up their basic website to something more appealing, unique, interactive and professional.
Regardless of the business add-ons you need for your website, Joomla has them all free of charge. However, the selection of website themes isn’t as extensive as its other CMS solutions. You can easily search private website and blogs to find more, and the Joomla community is quite active and available to help you hunt down what you need for your business website project. It is easy to create an eCommerce site, complete with shopping carts, point-of-sale systems, inventory management and affiliate tracking.
Joomla! is written in PHP, uses object-oriented programming (OOP) techniques (since version 1.5) and software design patterns, stores data in a MySQL, MS SQL (since version 2.5), or PostgreSQL (since version 3.0) database, and includes features such as page caching, RSS feeds, printable versions of pages, news flashes, blogs, search, and support for language internationalization.
As of November 2016, Joomla! has been downloaded over 81 million times. Over 7,800 free and commercial extensions are available from the official Joomla! Extensions Directory, and more are available from other sources. It is estimated to be the second most used content management system on the Internet, after WordPress.
