Joomla! hosting

FAQ – Frequently asked questions

Joomla! hosting is an internet hosting service that allows you to make your Joomla! based website available to internet users. A hosting provider supplies space on a server that makes your website available around the clock and takes care of all the technical aspects that ensure seamless Joomla! website hosting. Joomla! is known as a powerful web content management system (CMS) based on open source software, and is derived from the Mambo software project.

It is ideal for managing content that has to be continually updated, like text content or corporate applications. The benefit of this kind of CMS is that content can be updated separately from the layout and formatting. If you have basic word processing skills you can easily manage your content on a Joomla! based website.

No, you don't! The Joomla! interface is intuitive and designed to make building and maintaining your site simple. And if you choose web hosting for Joomla! from IONOS, you'll get 1-click installation to make setting up your site even easier. Just click once and the Joomla! plugin and all its features are set up to work with your hosting package. Don't worry if you get stuck. IONOS has experts standing by 24/7 to help you out.

Purchasing a hosting package from IONOS means you get powerful web hosting for Joomla!. How? At IONOS, your web server and website are on the same platform, so you'll get faster loading and better security.

And because your site data is 'mirrored' or saved in two separate data centres, it's always available. Even in the event of an outage, your site stays online.

Although the price of Joomla! hosting varies, it doesn't have to to cost a fortune. The entry-level package from IONOS, for instance, gives you everything you need to take your first steps online, including storage, a domain, and 24/7 tech support.

If have a larger website or higher traffic needs, you'll need more memory to minimise loading times. In this case, one of the larger hosting packages might be a better option.

IONOS provides Joomla! hosting for Linux and Windows. Since Linux hosting works on a computer running on Windows and vice versa, you don't need to choose the same operating system as your computer's. The main difference between Linux and Windows hosting is the technology running in the background.

Linux is preferred by experts, partly due to large number of free tools and its support for PHP, MySQL and Perl. Windows based hosting might be more useful for users who want to add Windows apps to their websites. Active Server Pages (ASP), for example, works particularly well with Windows.

At the end of the day, your needs will be be the deciding factor when choosing the right operating system for your Joomla! hosting project.
