New York, NY, - August 28, 2014 - Joomla, one of the world’s most popular open source content management systems (CMS) used for everything from websites and blogs to custom apps and Intranets, announced today that SiteGround web hosting company is the RFP winner for the ongoing official Joomla Demo and the new Free Joomla Hosting option. The partnership is expected to increase the number of new users to Joomla by making it easier to get started.
The opportunity to create a temporary Joomla Demo account has been available at demo.joomla.org since 2010, but included only a short 30-day free trial. With SiteGround as the new official host, the trial period will be extended to 90-days to give users more time to evaluate all the features of Joomla CMS. Additionally the sign up process will be faster and easier. This new version of the Official Joomla Demo will replace the current offer in September 2014. The Free Joomla Hosting option is expected to be launched later this year and it will allow the users to create and maintain a free Joomla website for unlimited time. The aim of both the extended Joomla Demo and the new Free Joomla Hosting is to make the start with the Joomla CMS easier and to increase the number of people, who choose Joomla as their favorite website platform.
Joomla!®, one of the world’s most popular open source content management systems (CMS) used for everything from websites to blogs to custom apps to Intranets, is delighted to be supporting the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing as a Silver Sponsor. The event is the largest of its kind in the world, with over 4,700 women coming together from 8-10 October in Phoenix, Arizona (USA) to learn, share and inspire.
