What is Drupal?

Drupal is an open source Content Management System (CMS) that provides you with the control to add, edit all of the content on the site from a web browser such as Firefox, Chrome, or Internet Explorer, without having to learn any internal coding required to construct a web page.

You get the full power to update and organise your site without limits.

We develop new projects on Drupal 8 that is the latest version released on the 17th November 2015. It is maintained and developed by the hundreds of thousands of Drupal 6 and 7 users and developers. Drupal 8 has been redesigned and engineered to work on any device and provide a new standard in easy to use websites.

We also support many sites that are still running the older Drupal 7 and 6 versions.

Drupal’s community of millions of users and sites provide countless eyes and ears to help keep Drupal sites secure.

Let us monitor and update your site and never loss a nights sleep about your sites security.

Who uses Drupal?

The system is highly scalable and can support millions of pages and users which makes it a greata choice from small, inexpensive sites for small businesses and non-profit organisations to large, intensive sites for universities, multi-national organisations and government.

There are no restrictions or additional costs on the number of pages or user accounts that you can add to your site.

The community spirit of Drupal also means that there is an excess of 17,000 modules  or plugins that can be used to extend the core functionality of Drupal making it extremely modular and versatile. These need to be carefully screened and selected and made to work together cohesively to satisfy your particular requirements. Our experience ensures this will be a smooth experience.
