Joomla

The Joomla! CMS

Joomla! is an OpenSource Content Management System (CMS). It's the CMS of choice used by millions of people all over the world for a diverse range of websites from small charity websites to large corporate and government website - It's been downloaded over 110 million times.

We've had experience with lots of other CMS's, but none compare to the fantastic versatility combined with ease of use of Joomla!
Joomla! is open-source, meaning many programmers and developers contribute to its ongoing improvements, security and testing - even us. There is a vast number of extensions available too so your site can grow and become more complex as and when you need it.

ConCon Web Design can help you install Joomla!, create your website using Joomla, provide training, maintenance, support, security, help and onsite consultancy.


Joomla Maintenance & Support

Your website needs regular maintenance to keep the content fresh & current and software up to date with security fixes.
In our first ten years within the website, I very rarely saw a hacked website. Today, the number of website attacks increases daily and with it, the risks to your business as we have all come to depend on our website running fast, smoothly, securely and visible to search engines.

Keeping your Joomla or Wordpress website and extensions up to date is essential and is more comfortable with our support contracts. Most hacked Joomla or Wordpress websites are a result of the CMS or extensions not being kept up to date, misconfigured extensions or poor web hosting providers.

The websites we build & host are already a few steps ahead, as we take security seriously from the beginning. Our Web hosting is high quality, in the UK, fast, managed and self-isolated.

So keeping your website content and software up to date not only benefits your users/customers/clients. It also has a hugely positive effect within your search engine rankings too. A fast, secure, maintained website will always be better for your business - Remember your website is your best, most hard-working employee!

Securing Joomla & Fixing Problems

Recent times have seen the evolution of professional, highly advanced hacking networks. The threat faced by website owners in the past was defacement of a site. Now the threat is also the injection of malicious code, viruses and phishing scripts directed towards your users. 

Having a plan to keep your CMS and all 3rd party plugins up to date are vital in your web strategy and remain one of the best forms of protection.

Your site should be installed and configured according to the Joomla Administrator's Security Checklist, a backup and recovery plan needs to be in place in case the unthinkable does happen. 

We can help you with this, by providing regular updates, maintenance, security audits along with tested backups at regular intervals.

100% of Joomla websites we have built, we host and maintain have never been hacked or compromised.
