As a web agency, you may be looking for the CMS that fits your clients’ needs best, so you can create professional, powerful, secure, mobile-friendly and easy-to-maintain websites for them. Look no further: Joomla, time and time awarded as “best free CMS”, has it all. It’s versatile, flexible, easy to use, secure, and suitable for countless types of websites. And on top of all that it’s completely free. We give you ten reasons why you should try it today!
Easy to install
Some hosting providers have a one-click install from your hosting manager. That is fast and easy, but if your hosting provider doesn’t have that or you want to install it yourself, you simply download and unpack it, upload it to your server and follow the steps. It takes minutes to set up. Once it’s installed, you’re ready to start creating your client’s website.
Works out of the box
Joomla has all the features needed for most websites, built into the core. Combine articles with tags and custom fields and you have a whole world of possibilities, without having to install a single extension. Native features also include great SEO options, managing user access, multilanguage and using modules for showing content everywhere you want it. If the template you use is not too large (not packed with all kinds of extras), you’ll find the website loads really fast once you have it up and running.
Tweak it to your liking
Within Joomla, you have a lot of different ways to show article content. Features you need to install plugins for in other CMS are already present in the Joomla core, right from the beginning.
If you need to show information in a different way, you can create overrides for category blog pages, article views or content modules and change your article views into directories, a product catalogue or even a slideshow or gallery. Joomla has a lot of documentation on how to create overrides.
