New York, NY, - August 28, 2014 - Joomla, one of the world’s most popular open source content management systems (CMS) used for everything from websites and blogs to custom apps and Intranets, announced today that SiteGround web hosting company is the RFP winner for the ongoing official Joomla Demo and the new Free Joomla Hosting option. The partnership is expected to increase the number of new users to Joomla by making it easier to get started.
The opportunity to create a temporary Joomla Demo account has been available at demo.joomla.org since 2010, but included only a short 30-day free trial. With SiteGround as the new official host, the trial period will be extended to 90-days to give users more time to evaluate all the features of Joomla CMS. Additionally the sign up process will be faster and easier. This new version of the Official Joomla Demo will replace the current offer in September 2014. The Free Joomla Hosting option is expected to be launched later this year and it will allow the users to create and maintain a free Joomla website for unlimited time.
The aim of both the extended Joomla Demo and the new Free Joomla Hosting is to make the start with the Joomla CMS easier and to increase the number of people, who choose Joomla as their favorite website platform.
The contract has been granted to SiteGround by Open Source Matters (OSM) - the not for profit organization, created to provide organization, legal and financial support to the Joomla project. The President of OSM, Sarah Watz says: “SiteGround has been a very active and appreciated member of the Joomla Community for a many years supporting Joomla at many events globally and providing Joomla hosting that makes it easy to get started. I’m pleased to see that this new partnership brings that great experience to all users who are just starting with Joomla. “
Lilyana Yakimova, who is the Marketing Director of SiteGround and will be in charge of the two projects, says: “We are very happy to be able to bring our Joomla hosting expertise to both these projects and to be a part of the future growth of this amazing CMS. I am also excited about the opportunity to work closely with the Joomla community, as it has always been a great example for me how the purely volunteer efforts of many people, who truly believe in an idea, can make a dent in the world, even in the IT world.”
SiteGround is a leading web hosting company with a special focus on Joomla CMS. Its hosting platform is optimized for additional Joomla security with the help of specific account isolation and in-house developed Joomla security plugin and proactive Joomla security monitoring. The performance of Joomla CMS and its loading speed is also enhanced on SiteGround servers with the help of a special caching solution, developed by the company. SiteGround has also been an active sponsor of multiple Joomla events, including the Joomla! World Conference 2012, 2013, and 2014, JAB 2012, 2013 and 2014 and more than 40 other local Joomla! Days for the last 3 years.
Joomla is one of the world's most popular software packages used to build, organize, manage and publish content for websites, blogs, Intranets and mobile applications. With more than 3 percent of the Web running on Joomla and a CMS market share of more than 9 percent, the free open source software powers the web presence of hundreds of thousands of small businesses, governments, non-profits and large organizations worldwide like Citibank, eBay, General Electric, Harvard University, Ikea, McDonald's and Sony. The award-winning CMS is led by an international community of more than a half million active contributors, helping the most inexperienced user to seasoned web developer make their digital visions a reality. Joomla's power and extensibility has resulted in its software being downloaded close to 60 million times.

The Joomla! Project and the Production Leadership Team are proud to announce the release of Joomla! 3.3.3. This is a maintenance release for the 3.x series of Joomla! and addresses issues introduced in 3.3.2 with the e-mail cloaking code and user configuration options not applying correctly.
If you are currently running a Joomla! release on a server with PHP 5.3.10 or later, we encourage you to update immediately to Joomla! 3.3.3 via either the one-click update or the update downloads available at http://www.joomla.org/download.html.
Note that in order to update directly to 3.3.3 via the core update component, you must be running 3.2.2 or later due to the raised minimum supported PHP version and the update system not supporting checking the server’s PHP version in older releases. Older 3.x releases will be prompted to update to 3.2.4 before being presented the 3.3.3 update.
