International Free Joomla Templates

Posted by Doug on March 13, 2011 in Content Management with No Comments


People who use Joomla to build their websites, turn to the community for advice, or become members of the community themselves, are located all around the world. Joomla has kept this in mind when designing and building their own free Joomla templates and online community magazine. Not everyone who uses Joomla, no matter the reason, speaks the same language.

Joomla magazine can be read in many different languages besides English including Japanese, Arabic, German, Thai and the list goes on. Members wanting to contribute a story to the magazine can do so in the language of their choosing. When it’s time to submit a story they simply click on the language link they want to submit it to.

It is easy to read the magazine in a different language as well. There is a menu located in the upper right hand corner of every web page with the word translation written next to it. Members look through the menu for the language they prefer and click on it. The website is then quickly translated into that language.

Benefits of Shared Hosting for Personal Websites

Posted by Doug on March 6, 2011 in Shared Hosting with No Comments


Shared hosting has many benefits and the main one is that it is affordable for those who want personal websites. These personal websites can be anything from free to use sites that generate no income or those that have advertisement revenue programs or affiliate marketing programs integrated into it.

Most types of personal websites are accepted, such as informative websites or personal blogs. Those who are new to website development and maintenance are able to build up skills to see whether this is their forte or not. There are a number of extras that are gained through website hosting on a shared server basis, which makes website building a lot easier than going it alone.

It is perfect for those who do not want much from their websites and have no server-side programming. It means that these types of websites are more than likely going to be up and running the majority of the time because it requires less than many other websites on these servers.
