For most people this means signing up with a hosting company and purchasing a domain that will serve as your site's main address.

The site building software features all of the Joomla! CMS core functionalities that make building a website easy and flexible.
  • If you want to test Joomla! and you haven't purchased a domain yet, you can see and experiment with a working installation at demo.joomla.org. As an added bonus, the demo site provides links for creating a working Joomla! website with a 30 day trial. (Note that the Joomla! Project receives a royalty if you choose paid hosting from that site.)
