Mambo CMS

Mambo Content Management System - Joomla & Drupal Alternative

Mambo is a full-featured, award-winning content management system that can be used for everything from simple websites to complex corporate applications. It is used all over the world to power government portals, corporate intranets and extranets, ecommerce sites, nonprofit outreach, schools, church, and community sites. Mambo’s “power in simplicity” also makes it the CMS of choice for many small businesses and personal sites.

Just like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and other similar content management systems, Mambo is an open source piece of software that lets users create beautiful looking websites with remarkable ease. The CMS is extremely versatile, allowing you to build virtually any type of website you can think of without requiring any sort of programming knowledge. All you need to kick things off is a bit of imagination and a solid web hosting plan. While the CMS can work hand in hand with any provider, we found that Mambo-powered websites are more stable when paired with web hosting from major companies like SiteGround or Bluehost. The Mambo software falls under the GNU General Public License (GNUGPL) agreement, which means it can be freely distributed and modified.
