Joomla is the second most popular content management system, covering around 4.5% of the industry. The app has been downloaded more than 123 million times and powers more than 2.5 million online projects. The open-source architecture and thousands of devoted community members have helped Joomla grow into a multipurpose solution with an expanding set of features. IKEA, Epson America, ITWire, and the Roger Federer official website are some of the avid users of this acclaimed web solution.
ScalaHosting is a VPS-oriented hosting provider with a strong focus on innovative products. So far, the host has been responsible for the development of a user-friendly management platform (SPanel), a security monitoring system (SShield), and a WordPress helper tool (SWordPress Manager). ScalaHosting has been in business for more than 15 years and currently hosts over 700,000 websites.
ScalaHosting has recently announced the collaboration with Joomla, becoming one of the recommended providers of the popular CMS. As Chris Rusev, CEO and co-founder of Scala, explains:
ScalaHosting has been committed to Joomla and its community for over 10 years, and by supporting one of the most popular CMS platforms globally, it is for us a logical step forward. Being an exclusive Managed VPS provider, we want to help Joomla users to experience a completely different level of website loading speeds, reliability, and security, in an isolated cloud environment. The all-in-one VPS solutions like SPanel are the next big thing in the hosting industry, and we want to make sure that Joomla fans are among the first to try it out.
The Joomla Team is also thrilled with the partnership. Brian Mitchell, president of Open Source Matters, explains:
This is a great opportunity for users to experience not just the power of Joomla as a flexible and extensible Content Management System, but to also see Joomla hosted on a high-grade platform at a very competitive price. The ScalaHosting solution brings ‘professional hosting capabilities’ within reach of the smaller website creators who would previously have utilized a shared hosting solution.
