Magento is an open-source content management system for e-commerce web sites. The software was originally developed by Varien Inc., a US private company headquartered in Culver City, California, with assistance from volunteers.
Magento employs the MySQL/MariaDB relational database management system, the PHP programming language, and elements of the Zend Framework. It applies the conventions of object-oriented programming and model-view-controller architecture. Magento also uses the entity–attribute–value model to store data.

Moreover, it offers a spontaneous administration interface that includes a robust marketing, search engine optimization and catalogue-management tools to give merchants the power to create sites customized as per their unique business requirements.
