Free Install & Support!

Our Joomla hosting plan includes free installation and troubleshooting of the Joomla extensions below!


(Best Security Extension)

This is a security plugin designed by SiteGround to protect your Joomla from hacking attacks. It is effectively used against SQL injections, remote URL/File inclusions, remote code executions and xss based attacks. Each Joomla we install includes this plugin by default. We have also made it publicly available and it can be freely downloaded by anyone from our website.

Akeeba Backup

(Backup Extension)

This is another award-winning extension, being singled out several times for its excellence by the Joomla experts on the J and Beyond conference. Akeeba backup allows you to create and restore easily a Joomla site backup. Having a backup costs nothing, but not having one can cost you a lot. We highly recommend you to use Akeeba backup to create Joomla backups regularly.


(Content Editing Extension)

This is by far the most popular extension used by our customers. It makes content editing in Joomla easy and at the same time adds additional functionality on top of the default editing options. JCE has been awarded the best Joomla module and plugin in 2010 and the best free Joomla addon in 2012 on J and Beyond conference. And looking at the number of people that use it, these awards seem to be well deserved!


(Shopping Cart Extension)

This is definitely the most popular eCommerce plugin among our Joomla users. Probably because it is a comprehensive and yet free tool, that allows you to create and manage a full-fledged e-store as part of your Joomla website.


(Content Editing Extension)

This is another one of the most frequently used components by our customers. No surprise that it has also traditionally been nominated and/or winning J and Beyond awards. Its creators from JoomlaWorks say that it replaces the spartan default Joomla article manager to give you much more editing options without making editing itself too complicated.
