Joomla is a content management system (CMS) used to publish web based content. Using Joomla, we can create websites and many custom web based applications. Joomla is an open source free software and is developed as a PHP, MVC (Model View Controller) and MySQL based application which has a file system to manage files and database to store data.
Like WordPress, Joomla also has a very easy to use administrative backend to manage the website or web application content which can help you edit, add and update any content with minimal effort and training. However, Joomla installation is not as quicker as WordPress. But this should not be counted as a negative point.
Joomla websites can be designed by either developing a custom design or by using ready to Joomla templates. Its functionality can also be extended by using thousands or ready to use free and paid plugins known as extensions. However, the quantity of these extensions are not as high as WordPress and installation of these extensions is not like WordPress using the admin interface. In Joomla, we have to add the URL to upload a template or extension file.
Joomla website has SEO (Search Engine Optimization) friendly URLs and with professional expertise in coding and design we can achieve the best performance in establishing a higher rank in search engines using organic keywords.
