Posted by | Online Software | 14 Comments

So you have heard the name Joomla! You heard it is some kind of Content Management System or CMS so you ask so can I make my site with Joomla for free? The answer would be yes and no both. Why? Joomla is free alright but that doesn’t mean any web developer will set it up for free unless you are the web developer yourself and neither will a website design itself. Also, CMS will only let you edit the content of your website not let you design or redesign the website.

Buzz about Magento Ecommerce Shopping Cart

Posted by | E-commerce, Online Software, Web development | 3 Comments

These days we keep hearing a lot of good things about Magento eCommerce Shopping Cart. So is this really as great as some people claim it to be? In my honest opinion, this is very arguably the best free open source shopping cart software. Why do I say “arguably”? Well, because it is the best free one but this cart is by no means is for small ecommerce website. This software is built with enterprise solutions in mind. It is build almost like a MVC framework to develop other codes to add to it. This software is a server resouce hog and could use up all of a server’s resource even of a dedicated server. It’s bloated and customizing this software is cumbersome.
