Joomla is known as a free multifunctional and open source content management system, or CMS, tool for creating websites where no design or programming skills are required. It is a mobile-ready and a user-friendly solution which is written in PHP and utilizes OOP (object-oriented programming) techniques as well as software design templates. Joomla stores data in MySQL/MS SQL database and covers such features as RSS feeds, page caching, news flashes, blogs, printable page versions, polls, search and support for language internationalization. Joomla, like a great deal of other popular web apps, can be run on a LAMP stack.
To start a Joomla-based site you normally need to open a hosting account first and then have Joomla installed in there. However, Joomla has strong support from multiple hosts on the web that particularly specialize in installing and maintaining Joomla websites. Some of the resources provide the information on how to do it. On the other hand, a lot of web hosts have control panels which enable automatic Joomla installation.
When working with Joomla, the user gets access to the wide range of wonderful templates and can experiment with as many designs and ready-made features as they please, until they find what they really need.
