Joomla is a very popular content management system that is popular amongst websites. They can usually be automatically installed using Fantastico (Joomla web hosting is available on our web hosting plans). However, the question is if you need this very popular software.
While Joomla is very expandable and can have a lot of modules to accomplish anything, sometimes it would be considered an overkill. Per example, using Joomla for a blog is usually an overkill unless you have a very advanced blog. However, a great alternative for Joomla if you want to create your blog would be WordPress (which can be installed using Fantastico too).
However, if you have a site with a couple of pages but require a forum and other type of scripts where creating a theme for each would take a long time. Joomla is a good option however if you only have a couple of pages without the the need of theming, the best option might just be to stick with plain HTML.
There are no wrong choices in this case, however, there are better in cases. If you are going to use Joomla's full capacities then it is suggested. However if you will be only using part of it, then maybe you are looking at the wrong script.
