    Joomla has a lot of addons, but IMO, the majority of them really suck...or are poorly coded....not to mention, I was fed up with restoring sites because hackers keep targeting them, even with updated versions.

    ive used wordpress for large traffic sites without issue since ive been with http://mosso.com i used to host on godaddy and then webfusion both of which on shared hosting would crumble.

    Try out http://mosso.com and hey even use my promo code REF-IBOX to get 20% off ur first month. Oh n the CP on mosso is great

    One problem with these off-the-shelf software id that easily get attacked by hackers...and people who make them don't respond in a timely manner and take real measures..or not respond at all.

    Other companies which are using this type of hosting are:
    - www.mediatemple.com ($25/month - where famous blogs are hosted: Techcrunch, Venturebeat, Mashable)
    - www.joyent.com ($45/month - where Twitter was hosted not long time ago)
    - Amazon services http://www.amazon.com/gp/browse.html?node=3435361 which include cloud computing (which can be used with S3 storage service and/or SimpleDB database service). The model is pay-as-you-use ($0.15cents/GB traffic and there may be other fees).

    Mosso fees of $100/month seem high in comparison with the others...but Mosso is a service of Rackspace hosting and they are known for not being cheap...

    With all due respect, anything that is coded can be hacked. Doesn't matter if it's Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla or the soda vending machine. :eek:

    I guess this is the best you can do if you want to stay on a shared hosting. Unless Drupal or Joomla also have similar plugins, turning dynamic pages into static.
    I suppose that actually any of these CMS are good, provided that you use a service like the already mentioned medialayer or mosso.

    I agree with mg1313 - anything with the word "sucks" that doesn't have backup explanations is likely to be ignored. ;)

    I also agree with magdelene2008. ANYTHING - and I do mean ANYTHING - that has code can be hacked. A lot of factors play into you becoming a target, not the least of which is popularity of your CMS of choice. Also, the knowledge and skill of your web host comes into play here.

    That said, you may want to take a look at The CMS Matrix. Here, several CMS are compared side-by-side so you can get an idea of each one's strengths and weaknesses. That, along with a firm understanding of your immediate and long-range site goals, could really help you make an informed decision.

    Every CMS, every single one, has its plusses and minuses. The question is, which one has the best return on investment (of your time, resources, etc.) for your site? Get informed, make a decision, and reassess later on if you need to. Just because you start with one doesn't mean you have to stay with it forever.

    Lol, yeah... I was gonna write a whole paragraph, but I realised that I had a job to do, so I deleted everything and just wrote "Joomla sucks" :)

    Of course, I do have reasons for my statement. Here they are:
    Pros:
    • Quick and easy to set up
    • Default skins look good
    • Well thought-out back-end
    Cons:
    • It's said that it's the easy PHP CMS to use, but really, it's not really very user-friendly. I still can't figure out how to get the top menu bar to show anything, and I still don't know how to add pages. If it's easy to use, I should have been able to do it by now :mad:. Just by the way, I got two other people to try also, and neither of them could make a page or add a menu item. They're both good with software and hardware.
    • It's a little "resource-intensive".
    • Some of the back-end interface is a little annoying, and not so well thought-out.
    • The back-end just isn't very intuitive.
    Those are pretty much all of my reasons for disliking Joomla. I'm sure it's a great CMS once you get the hang of it, but you'd think that if it was that easy to use, then I would have been able to add a page by now...

    Aha.. meaning to say that it's good but learning curve is high.

    I have to agree but not to the "how to get the top menu bar to show anything", as I love to read lots of stuff even before I install Joomla (or bake any weird cakes). But yeah, I managed to get things going on with no problem now (except for that stupid mistake I made few weeks ago...rawr..)

    You know I don't care much about how it has lots of features. All I care is about the performance of the CMS
