Magento is a popular open-source e-commerce platform written in PHP, which provides online merchants with a flexible and customizable solution for managing their online stores. Launched in 2008, Magento has gained a reputation for its robustness, scalability, and extensive range of features, making it suitable for businesses of all sizes.

Magento offers a wide range of functionality, including product management, order processing, payment gateway integration, marketing tools, and search engine optimization features. The platform also has a vast ecosystem of extensions, themes, and plugins, allowing businesses to further customize and enhance their e-commerce stores.

In 2018, Magento was acquired by Adobe and has since been integrated into the Adobe Commerce Cloud, offering an even more comprehensive suite of tools for businesses looking to build and grow their online presence. There are two main editions of Magento available: Magento Open Source (previously known as Magento Community Edition), which is free to use, and Magento Commerce (previously known as Magento Enterprise Edition), a paid version that offers additional features and support for larger businesses.
