The easier, simpler and more preferable way to install your new template is to login to the admin area (backend) of your Joomla website (the /administrator directory, from where you manage all aspects of your site) and upload it from there. You can do this by opening the 'Extensions' tab and clicking on the 'Upload and Install' link after selecting the template from your computer. It should be uploaded and installed in a minute (usually in a few seconds after you click on the upload link). And, that's it! You have just uploaded and installed a new Joomla template on your website. The next thing you may want to learn maybe be how to modify the template to suit your planned theme for the website!
I begin with the XML file as this is the file that will need to contain the instructions for Joomla to install the file, this files can become a stock standard copy and paste for the templates you construct, however if there any files that were used in the previous template and not in the new template you will need to remove them from the XML file or you will find a horrible error when you try to install the template in the backend of Joomla.
Domain registration and web hosting are crucial for your website to appear online. There are many template providers who offer allied services like domain registration and hosting. Some even provide services like content development and search engine optimization. So be sure to buy templates from template vendors who offer these additional services. Some template providers like ‘buytemplates.net’ offer template related services irrespective of where you actually purchased the template from.
There are many ways of deploying a website. Sites usually fall into three categories, some are static and some uses content management systems and some are those that are custom made. There are number of content management systems out there in the market but some of them are very popular such as Joomla, WordPress and Drupal. It's easy to find templates on internet for these CMS's, so now a day these content management systems are preferred by most of the developers. The template generally controls the appearance of the website, while the core files of the CMS maintain the content, and cascading style sheets, Flash and other web technologies.
There are both free and paid templates available for your use. With a few exceptions the free templates will come with a licence that gives rules for its use. Creative Commons licenses are often used by the creator of free web design templates. The rules may require that you use the template for only certain purposes. Attribution is often required which means that you must give proper credit to the author and not claim the design for yourself. The license is often included in the template download. If the license is not included in the download or the website you may assume that there is no license.
Themejoomla.com offers commercial templates as well. For a single download, most templates cost $25. This is actually a fairly cheap and reasonable price for the template when you consider the amount of time and effort that it takes to create such a network of files and extensions that interact with each other to ensure that all aspects of the website work together and is designed the exact way that you want. Also, getting the website to work the way that you want is also difficult. $25 is a good price for a template. There is no limit to how long you can use a template. You can use the same template for years to come, so a $25 dollar investment for long term, unlimited use, is cheap.
