Drupal is a fully featured content management system that can be infinitely enhanced through the installation of contributed modules or by customized development. Drupal Hosting is used as a “back end” system for many different types of websites, ranging from small personal blogs to large corporate and political sites.
At FASTDOT, we are committed to the Drupal open-source community and our Drupal developers. Our goal is to provide a specialized service with speedy, secure, rock solid infrastructure to host your Drupal web site.
Drupal was created over ten years ago and released as open-source software under the GNU Public License. That means it’s completely free to download, use, and modify: There are no purchase, license, or maintenance fees.
The standard release of Drupal, known as “Drupal core”, contains basic features common to most CMSs. These include the ability to register and maintain individual user accounts, administration menus, RSS-feeds, customizable layout, flexible account privileges, logging, a blogging system, an Internet forum, and options to create a classic “brochureware” website or an interactive community website.
Drupal is the perfect Content Management System for both managing and developing your website with one of FASTDOT’s cPanel Hosting plans.
