Here's a 12 minute sample of one of our latest video tutorials at Joomlashack University called "Automating daily site backups with Akeeba Backup Pro."
Akeeba Backup is one of the most popular and most helpful extensions for Joomla that there is.
With Akeeba Backup Pro, the paid version, you can make it even more useful by setting it up to automatically make daily backups of your site and have those backup files sent to a server of your choice, such as an Amazon S3 or Rackspace Cloudfiles account.
In this video lesson, you'll see how to set up a Cloudfile account and how to configure Akeeba Backup Pro to automatically send it's daily backup files to the Cloudfile account.
One of the many cool things about working for an online company, like Joomlashack, is that you can log in and work from the comfort of your own home. We all get to see our families a bit more each day; can work in our PJs all day if we want; and never, ever have to worry about long commutes to work. It's a pretty sweet deal.
Our team is spread out all over the world, so working out of one central office would be a bit difficult at the moment. And that's why Skype has been such a godsend to us. It’s allowed our team to stay connected to each other despite us all being in multiple timezones.

These days, your online 'brand' is everything--whether that brand is you, your blog or your business. First impressions last, and so you only have a few seconds to win over a new visitor that comes to your site.
Now, a great-looking website is just one part of brand-building (history, good deeds, great products, awesome customer service,distinctive colors, cool logo/typography, etc also play a part in brand-building), but if your website is cluttered and unprofessional, your company's good reputation, engaging content, and awesome products won't matter much to new visitors as they'll never stick around long enough to learn more about you and your brand.
Our JS Enterprise Joomla template will help you build your online brand and give your site a clean, corporate & professional look that will make your customers feel good about visiting (and buying from) your site over and over again.
