Joomla Hosting

The ideal environment for hosting Joomla built web sites

Joomla hosting is the ideal platform for hosting Joomla, a Content Management System (CMS), which enables you to build web sites and powerful online applications. CMS systems like Joomla help you keep track of every item of content on your web site which can include text, photos, music, video or documents.

Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla one of the most popular choices in web site software today. Joomla is an open source program, which means its code is made available for use or modification by users and developers.

What are the technical requirements for running Joomla?

In order to successfully host Joomla, it is recommended that you have installed PHP 5.2, MySQL 4.1, Apache 2.1x+ or Microsoft IIS7.5.

Does Storm Internet support Joomla web hosting?

Yes, we support Joomla hosting on our Linux Ultimate package and currently host several hundred active installations of Joomla for our customers on these packages.

Can I remotely connect to my Joomla database?

Yes. An added benefit of our Joomla hosting packages in comparison to many of our competitors, is that we allow full Remote Connections to your Joomla MySQL database. This means that you have full management capabilities over your database and can directly access and manage your database, using powerful MySQL management tools such as MySQL Workbench (formally MySQL Administrator).

Can I transfer my existing Joomla web site to Storm?

Yes. With our Joomla hosting package, we make it easy to transfer an existing Joomla web site hosted elsewhere to us. There's no need to rebuild your database from scratch if you wish to transfer an existing Joomla database to us. If you already have a Joomla database hosted elsewhere, all you need is a script backup of your Joomla database which can quickly be restored to your Storm Joomla hosting package using phpMyAdmin that comes preinstalled on our Linux Ultimate package. You are also able to take full backups of your Joomla database using the control panel we provide and can restore back to your site at any point. Therefore not only ensuring your Joomla based site runs perfectly, but also that it is fully protected.
