Joomla is a free, open-source CMS for the small websites and online stores. To start selling, you need to buy the hosting, find the webmasters, configure the modules.

This platform is open-source, so the various modules are created by different developers. The modules might conflict between each other and cause the issues in operation.

You have to pay extra not only for the modules, but also for the system updates. Moreover, you shouldn't forget to renew the subscription. The new system might not support the older modules.

Mercurio CMS

We guarantee the online store protection and provide technical support.

  • We provide technical support and warranty for the online store. The system is based on advanced technologies with a high security level. Laravel, Vue.JS, Elasticsearch are in the top for use in the world.

  •  Mercurio CMS is already used in public and private organizations. We have invested 18 years of experience in the system. 

  • CMS is audited and tested to ensure its security.


The security level depends on the developers or webmasters.

  • The website security depends on the professionalism and integrity of the developer you contact. They need to understand Joomla, and there are not so many of such developers.

  •  You need to pay extra to contractors, constantly check an online store operation and monitor the updates. But it still does not guaranty the stable operation.

  • The vulnerable spot is extensions from the unverified sources, which are used for the system hacking.


Mercurio CMS

The online store operation is controlled by our development team

  • With us, you will not only get a ready-made platform for e-commerce. We are always ready to help with content placement and settings, to consult.

  •  The support is not only from a technical point of view. Our managers always answer all your questions. 


You need the contractors who provide maintenance

  • To understand the modules, updates, choose hosting, you still need to use the specialist help.

  •  Joomla forum support is available, but it is not the most reliable source. 


Mercurio CMS

We provide fast operation even at high loads.
Our CMS is designed specifically for online sales. The website loads in 1.1 seconds, even with millions of visitors. You can enjoy fast operation for both a small online store and a marketplace.
We pay special attention to the fast loading of the online store, as this helps to improve sales and higher website performance on Google.


The speed depends on the number of modules.

An online store on Joomla might have hundreds of installed modules. The operation speed depends on their quantity and quality. The situation might be improved by additional modules or modernization of the present system. But all of this is additional expenses, which might not help. The loading speed is highly important in e-commerce, so select responsibly.

Our reviews

I had a good experience developing an online store for us as clothing manufacturers. The team recommended to start the basic version of the online store at the beginning, and then, after the project starts to earn, to implement all sorts of chips that I wanted. I agreed and did not regret it. I am still developing my project. Everything suits. I recommend.

Andrew, Top Hat Factory


To create the site of the publishing house "White Owl", I turned to the Mercurio CMS team, as I had worked with them before and knew that if they do - everything will be ok. This time I had time and budget constraints, and the guys for a month without pain and difficulty made us a good working site that closes all the tasks we need. Also, what is important for me personally, it is easy and interesting to work with people in this company.

Christina, publishing house "White Owl"
