There has been an argument raging on the web that Drupal is a beast when it comes to building websites, or it is not as easy to build as WordPress but it is very secure and scalable. While others argue that Drupal is the best choice! Here we would like to point out what Drupal is best suited for when it comes to building websites.

To the unfamiliar, Drupal is a content management system, even a framework to build your website on. It is a Free and Open Source platform that is licensed under the GNU. Drupal, a scalable, open-source platform for content management provides deep capabilities as well as endless flexibility for your website. It is the platform of choice for enterprises (Lamborghini, Pfizer), educational institutions (MIT, Ivy League Colleges1), NGOs(World Bank, Amnesty International), Media (BBC, ABC) and government (The White House, French Government)2.

Distinct factors to look for when choosing Drupal for your website

Where flexibility is needed

Drupal can add any service that you need, be it third party tools or some new feature that you want to add to your site.

When you want a secure website

Drupal is one of the most secure content management system. Drupal’s modules are reviewed and patches updated to ensure that it remains secure.

When you want the advantage of a Free And Open Source project

Drupal being Free And Open Source, any cost that will be incurred will be in it’s setup and configuration. This is in stark contrast to the licensing fee and support dependency of proprietary systems3.

When you want a content rich website

When you require a site that's basically a collection of various kinds of pages with lists of varying content complexity, Drupal can't be beat. It is also fast to develop and robust.

When you want a multilingual website

Business that wish to present the content of their websites in local languages to their target audience find the multilingual feature in Drupal 8 core very attractive. You can use your Drupal website as a single platform to share content across multiple devices and in multiple languages.

When you require a high traffic website/ high performance website

You can design a Drupal site for high traffic and speed. Some of the top websites by traffic run on Drupal4.

When you need a website that is always in tune with the latest technology, Drupal is a great choice! APIs and RESTful web services in Drupal 8 Core makes the site responsive and leverage the browser capabilities to deliver a personalized user experience.

Like what you've done with this college campus webpage and all the modules you developed for the theme. Thanks a lot for this blog.

When you want to move a Drupal site from one hosting server to another you have to ensure that the site works the same way on the new server as it used to work on the old server. There is no real fool proof way of doing this other than to meticulously document all the custom aspects associated with setting up the site and verifying it on the new server. The following is a checklist of information you have to collect before you move your Drupal site from one server to another.

Ecommerce used to be the preferred ecommerce solution for Drupal before Ubercart came into the picture. We recently worked on upgrading a Drupal 5 site with Ecommerce to Drupal 7 with Ubercart. The challenge with this upgrade was that the source data existed only in the D5 database and the corresponding code to programmatically access the ecommerce data was in D5 as well while the destination tables existed only in the D7 database with the corresponding code existing only in the D7 database. The solution we went with was to go for a full SQL query based migration to copy over the Ecommerce data from its tables to the Ubercart tables.
