Joomla is one of the most widely used content management systems (CMS) in the world. Open Web Creations specializes in developing effective Joomla websites and Hikashop webshops at an affordable price. You can also contact Open Web Creations if you want to modernize and/or convert your existing website to Joomla. Joomla is suitable for dynamic and interactive websites. Make use of the many available components, modules and plugins and give your website additional functionality. This way you arrange the website to your liking.
The Joomla procedure
Open Web Creations offers 2 choices for designing your website. The 'Basic Website' is a great choice for many websites. A choice is made from one of the many available templates (a template determines how your website will look like), and it will be tailored to your business needs and business style.
It is also possible to make an individual design for your website. An individual design is a step beyond your website. It's important to look at what your business stands for, what you would like to render with your website or other media. Through various consultations we'll get the right design.
Joomla components and plugins
Of course, Joomla's default installation is already complete, but what makes Joomla so special is that there are so many good components and plugins available that make Joomla even more complete. Below we list the most important ones:
- Best Joomla security: RSFirewall
- Best Joomla content plugins: NoNumber Snippes
- Best Joomla templates: RocketTheme
Joomla Webshop with Hikashop
Open Web Creations sees an increase in the use of Joomla in combination with a webshop. If you want to install a webshop on your Joomla website, then we recommend HikaShop. HikaShop is available in a free version that complements your Joomla website to expand with a webshop.
Also open source shopping packages are available that allow you to directly set up a complete webshop like OpenCart. When you are looking for a specific webshop function, we recommend OpenCart. If you want to add a lot of other content to your website next to a webshop or when you already use Joomla, HikaShop can be a good choice.
Joomla Hikashop is also easy to expand with iDeal, Paypal or credit card payment methods, although, in case of webshops, it has to be said that iDeal payments predominate.
