PrestaShop

Prestashop offers a quick solution for companies who want a scalable solution in less time and with a low budget requirement. It's perfect for startup and pilot-projects. For example, it's very hard to put Prestashop in the middle of a multi-channel business due to security risks, difficult to exchange data from one database to another, API requests and more.

Cons

Joomla

  • Some of the Joomla! plugins and extensions are not free and not cheap as well.
  • Difficult for own customization.
  • Security concerns.
Ilham AB profile photo

PrestaShop

  • Since it starts as ready to go platform it's difficult to protect your store from being copied by someone else
  • Without a developer, you depend on Prestashop's modules marketplace that lacks free extensions
  • Since it isn't an enterprise level platform the use of Prestashop is strictly related to the size of your business

Renew is not a fair term as it is free and open source but we will continue to use Joomla.

Usability

Joomla! 3.x is easily installed either manually or via a script provided by your host. It contains most of the tools needed to begin creating websites right from the start. Those features that it doesn't have are easily installed via links and buttons from the thousands of extensions available in the community

Today's Modern Joomla performs very well and is robust and durable. The pages load faster than they ever did in the past and Modern Joomla's integration into other software or systems has become seamless. Modern Joomla sites will last long and will stay running forever.

I would say the Joomla.org support team does a great job for being volunteers. I however think good 3rd party developers and resources provide excellent support that I utilize often.

Implementation

Joomla

Joomla 8.7
Based on 3 answers
Make sure that PHP.ini is set to at least 60 ms for computer priority, 60MB for maximum downloads and 128MB for uploads. This is the minimum. It is best to run Joomla on a business host if you are using a shared hosting environment so that there are fewer accounts on the server. Make sure you have access to the root on CPanel. Be sure to point the DNS to the host and set up all zones prior to implementation and run your new version in a sub-domain hidden from the live version until you are ready to cut over.

Alternatives Considered

Joomla

Joomla! is much easier than those products and with the strong support from Joomla! community and the availability of Joomla! plugins and extensions, then in my point of view, Joomla! is better. Also, Joomla! is very suitable for Portal and e-Commerce creation. Many features and add-on support this functionality and requirement to serve the business user.
