Although the web has huge differences between the look, feel, content and design of any two sites, there do tend to be some core common web page templates which a majority of sites tend to rely on for their operation. A great number of these are accommodated by open source solutions which can be downloaded and installed for free on almost any website which meets the technical requirements (usually PHP/asp and MySQL access).

One of the more famous and popular uses for both individuals and companies is the Web log, or Blog. A blog can keep a site dynamic, insightful and fresh. One of the most popular tools for creating a blog on your site and keeping it updates is WordPress. This is available for download at http://wordpress.org/download/. WordPress allows you to create articles and have user approved comments on such articles if you wish, allowing you to build a community or keep your customers informed of the latest developments and products.

Many sites need to be updated and the content added to and altered as time goes by however it’s not always practical for the web developer to have to do this themselves and it can save time and resources if the product manager for example can update the list of products directly. In cases like this, a CMS (content management system) can be very useful by creating a web interface that even a non technical employee can use to update key parts of the site. A popular free product for this is Joomla, you can download it from http://www.joomla.org/download.html. Joomla is an extremely powerful CMS and has been around for quite some time in one form or another. You can integrate it with most payment gateways if you wish to use it as a shop and can add numerous extra functionality quickly and easily, it also has a powerful template system allowing you to customise its look and feel to your own tastes.

Both Joomla and WordPress are available as 1 click installs on our clustered hosting system.
