Drupal is gaining popularity with Governments all over the world. The solidity of the platform would probably be the primary reason why Governments are moving their online portals to Drupal. Here is a list of the top 10 Government websites running on Drupal. If you are looking to get your site built in Drupal get in touch with us for a free quote.

The White House (USA)

White House Website
If ever there was a website that brought so much attention to Drupal and brought it to the limelight then it would be official website of the White House. Considered the poster boy of the Drupal community, this famous web portal generated a lot of enthusiasm and debate when it migrated to Drupal. Being one of the more important websites of the United States and as one which is closely watched by the rest of the world, the US Government was searching for a robust platform that had to be scalable and at the cutting edge of technology. Their search ended with Drupal and as a result, a number of other websites of various US Government agencies have migrated to Drupal.

Federal IT Spending Dashboard (USA)

Federal IT Spending Dashboard (USA)
This is another US Government based website powered by Drupal. One of the prime reasons why the US Government likes Drupal is that is Free Software. In addition to that the flexibility provided by Drupal through community contributed modules. The site was developed to showcase the effectiveness with which the CIOs of various Government agencies have managed government IT spending.

Data Gov (UK)

Data Gov (UK)
Following closely on the heels of the US Government, the UK Government has started using Drupal to lay the foundation of their online presence. Utilizing a very slick theme, the portal aims to provide a single platform for sharing public data that will help its citizens understand how the government is functioning. Another noteworthy point of the website is the fact that the father of the web - Sir Tim Berners Lee is the brainchild behind the project.

Most webmasters do not realize this, but a lot of the content on lot of websites can be accessed from multiple URLs. A simple example would be where www.example.com and example.com leads to the same page. This is a fatal mistake in Search Engine Optimization and search engines penalize you for duplicate content. The correct configuration would be where the above two urls will lead you to the same page but example.com will redirect you to www.example.com with a 301 (Moved permanently) status which will not result in search engines penalizing the page. It is very easy to configure 301 redirects using Apache .htaccess file and the process is the same for a Drupal installation also.

I'm trying to make example.com show as www.example.com, and I'm running into difficulties. I'm on Apache 2.0 and using the following lines in my httpd.conf file: RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^xxxxxxxxxx\.com$ [NC] RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.xxxxxxxxxx.com/$1 [L,R=301] When I go to http://xxxxxxxxxx.com, I get http://www.xxxxxxxxxx.com (as expected). However, when I go to http://xxxxxxxxxx.com/node/1 (it's a Drupal site), I get a 404 thrown and the URL changes to xxxxxxxxxx.com/var/www/drupal/node/1. Same thing with www.xxxxxxxxxx.com/node/1. Any suggestions? I want to run without Drupal's .htaccess file (instead incorporating these calls into my httpd.conf file). webmaster access_time 18 Aug 2019 - 19:46 In reply to Rewrite including filesystem path by Anonymous (not verified) I think the problem is with the base path which results in the redirection to /var/www/ part. The best approach I would think is to start with drupal htaccess and then strip out parts and move to httpd SNVC (not verified) access_time 18 Aug 2019 - 19:46 This is definitely a good guide. Thanks for this. wellyson access_time 18 Aug 2019 - 19:46 This is really nice and helpful. Add new comment

We have volunteered to take up the maintenance of a very useful Drupal module - Search404. As of today we are the official maintainers of this very useful Drupal module. We know that this is going to be a challenge for us, being a young company and with a young team. But we do feel that it is our responsibility to give back to the Drupal community at least some part of what it has given us.
