Though it may sound like a formidable creature from the depths of the minds of those who created Star Wars, Joomla is actually a free and open software application similar to Linux. The content management system allows anyone access to the program’s source code, meaning that it can be modified and redistributed freely by anyone who wishes. This program allows you to create websites and other applications even if you have little to no technical knowledge or experience. Small businesses, medium-to-large businesses, organization websites, school websites, e-commerce, e-magazines, government applications and many other entities are created using Joomla. It is important to choose a web host that is experienced with hosting websites built on Joomla if you want the best service and support.
