Strengthen your Joomla! Site security – Have you ever thought about?

Hacking and bugs are always the best problems to be worry about when you own a website. This is the reason why you must pay attention to protect your Joomla site and improve its security. Today, some tips will be given out to help you feel safe with you Joomla site.

Manage Jooma and extensions updated

It is a strong advice that you should update your site with the latest version of Joomla as soon as possible. When a new version is released, many bugs will be fixed and many security configurations will be added. The longer you hesitate to update Joomla, the more chance of being hacked will you receive.

And do the same with Joomla extensions!

Use strong login details

Remember that you must not use passwords like admin, admin123, 123456 … and so on if you want to keep your Joomla site safe. A strong password concludes:

  • No less than 8 characters in the length
  • No username, real name, school name or company name
  • A mixture of uppercase, lowercase characters and numbers

There are many free tools which generate strong passwords on the internet so find one and keep your account safe. Then change it regularly!

Often do backup your site

Files and database from your site should be backed up frequently in case you Joomla site is pulled into trouble. You can back up your site manually or use available Joomla extensions.

Remove unused Joomla extensions

You may install many extensions to your site, test them and forget them. Not only make your site slower, this will bring you many troubles that you may ignore. Now, check all of the extension and keep only important ones left then see how better your site works.

Make your Administrative page a secret

It is also a good idea when you hide your admin configuration area from the potential hackers by using a secret URL to access the backend. If you protect your administrator folder, one more password will be required to lead you to the standard login form. If you use a dynamic IP address, you will have to edit the .htaccess file everytime your IP changes.

They are some tips we would like to suggest you to prevent your Joomla site form hackers and bad things so on. Of course, there are still many other ways for you to choose.

If you have anything interesting, feel free to share to make the world better!

Shopping online means your consumers are not able to read the information on the packaging or labels. So, provide as much product information as you can: Sizes, materials, colors and many additional information depending on which product is. To make your visitors put more trust on, give them more than a large picture of products. Some Joomla extensions can help you do this within a few minutes.

Including responsive web design.

In the century of mobile devices, there are more and more people doing their shopping through their tablets, smartphones and other so-on collapsed devices. So it’s your serious fault if you do not pay attention to these consumers. Some business owners run two types of site (one for desktop, one for hand-held devices) but this wastes the time very much. With fully responsive Joomla templates, your website can perform smoothly on any screen size. This gives the visitor the most comfortable feeling, especially for the ones who log in our website at the first time.

Mega menus featured

There are a wide range of products in your site so it is very difficult and time-consuming to find a product if there is not any updates about it recently. With a powerful mega menu, your products can be divided into related categories. Some templates, especially built on Zo2 framework or T3 framework, are usually so dynamic. That means you are freely alowed to attach everything you want to the mega menu (text, image or even video) whether you master programming language or not.

Why Use Premium Joomla templates: 5 Reasons You Should Invest

Recently, my Colleague, Bich Hong wrote about the free Joomla templates and hopefully gave you top 10 idea places to find them.  Today, I want to cover the Premium Joomla templates and compile a few reasons why you should use Premium Joomla templates, in what ways you can use them, and who is using them. Let’s explore that, shall we?

 Responsive template ZT Melano from ZooTemplate

Premium Joomla Templates save your time:

Yes, they do! In the modern world, you are usually overburdened with paperwork so adding templates to your toolbox will not add work to your project. A template is a good option when you have a lot of work to do. Especially, if you start a personal website to promote your hobby or passion that you have, it saves you from having to learn HTML or any of the other coding such as CSS or PHP.

Premium Joomla Templates are built under a powerful & free Joomla Framework: Zo2 (by ZooTemplate), T3 (by Joomlart), Warp (by YooTheme) or Gantry (by RocketTheme), etc… for instance. A free, open-source, search-engine optimized Joomla Template Framework features responsive web design, twitter bootstrap framework, styling for popular joomla extensions, and a whole community behind it. Those features support you build your own websites within hours. Even with little knowledge of programming languages, you are still able to customize the content and layout of your website as much as you want.

Premium Joomla Templates save your money:

Every time you want to build a professional website, you have to either rent some outsiders or join a few of courses. That sounds so expensive. At ZooTemplate, Only with 59$, you will have in hand the silver membership package and the ability to download 40+ responsive Joomla templates within 3 months. That means you have to pay 1.5$ per template. By this way, you are able to have a bigger budget for other activities.

Premium Joomla Templates make you unique:

Someone rejects of using website templates because they think that a template is sold over and over and their websites will be in the same as the other’s ones. Now Joomla templates can deal with this problem effectively.

In addition, each Joomla Template has tons of short codes. We deliver the short codes you need in spades, letting you quickly and easily put together great content and sharp layouts. You are offered over 600 fonts and unlimited combinations of colors. Then, you could also upload background images on per section bases instead of solid background color if you wish.

Use responsive web design:

It is no secret that more and more internet users are accessing their favourite websites through mobile devices and this trend is still just at the beginning! The world goes mobile and responsive websites are the future of the internet. Joomla templates now use responsive design. That means they automatically adapts its layout to fit almost any screen resolution and looks fantastic on mobile devices, like smartphones or tablet computers. So there is no need anymore to build a separate website for mobile. It is amazing, right?

So, have you imagined your unique website?
