Typically, WordPress is preferred if you’d like to build a blog using an off the shelf theme with the focus being on the content. Joomla on the otherhand is more geared up for people who want to design and control every element of their website. Neither is limited in terms of functionality, a blog can be built with Joomla and a fully customisable site with WordPress. It’s merely a matter of preference.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many Joomla websites can I host with HostPresto?
You can setup as many Joomla installs as you desire providing you don’t exceed the disk space associated with your hosting plan.

Our Pro package allows unlimited add on domains.

Yes, all of our new web hosting accounts come with free migration so if you have an existing Joomla website hosted elsewhere we’ll be more than happy to migrate it for you once you become a HostPresto customer.
Is Joomla available via your one-click software install service?

I am having trouble with my extensions, can you help?

If I take out Joomla Hosting, can I only use Joomla?

Long time user...
"I’ve been using the Joomla CMS since I built my first website back in 2010 and I’ll probably be using it for the foreseeable future. For people just starting out it can be a bit complex to configure. Thankfully HostPresto are experts in Joomla and their hosting service is tailored made for Joomla installs. Well recommended."
My favourite CMS!
"RJoomla is my favourite CMS of the bunch. I’ve tried WordPress and Drupal and quite frankly they suck in comparison to Joomla. I’ve been with HostPresto for a number of years now and their Joomla hosting is tailored made for even the most complex Joomla setups. Although I think my little site is relatively simple compared to some!"
The best so far!
"I’ve used countless hosting companies over the years and always seem to have issues with my Joomla setups. It’s great software but can be complex to configure if you’re not in the know – and surprisingly not many people are! The HostPresto support team however are Joomla experts in disguise! Thanks for all your help!"
