Why is it the best? Because it is one of the most flexible and extremely scalable technology available today in the market. Developers appreciate the fact that with Drupal they are able to publish a single web site as well as share content in multiple languages across many devices.
  2. Free, open source software

    This platform comes with a strong architecture, and can easily integrate with third-party applications, which makes it one of the preferred technologies for websites. Drupal conforms to the required technical and business need and not the other way around. Once again, a winner.
  4. Faster development

    Development time is much less when compared to other available CMSs.With Drupal there isn’t any need to develop two separate versions of the visual templates and also there is no need to manually configure the CMS with information about products. The technology helps assimilate information held in the e-commerce store, like when building a landing page on the site that should feature both content and featured products.
  5. Complete security

    Drupal migration services provides the easy approach which can help you migrate the current website to Drupal irrespective of how complex your current database structure is. The technology does not compromise on security protocols and provides seamless interaction with 3rd party integrations, community support et al.
  6. High performance

    Drupal’s image compression, CSS and JS aggregation, as well as the basic theme optimization – all help, improve the website load time even if your website is laden with graphics and videos. Enabling it will help convert all files thus reducing the request and boosting speed. It is proven that without it the separate and repeated HTTP requests will slow down the page speed.
  7. Caching as a solution

    Caching comes as a complete creative solution to related problems when you leverage the Drupal platform. It is a remarkable addition to the package which helps improve the performance of the website.
  8. Multiple user management

    What is Drupal well known for? Not just for its user community but for being easily optimized. Since it is designed for community-based websites, it has a strong user role and access control functionality. The fact that there are no limits to the user roles and access levels can be used to create and customize roles such as anonymous visitor, authenticated user, editor etc. The advanced user management features can disabled/enabled later on when the site grows.
  9. Search engine optimized for URLs

    With Drupal, you have complete control over the URL structure. This way each content created in Drupal can be given a custom URL(URL alias). It can also be set to automatically generate user and search engine-friendly URLs based on content type, the title of the post, keyword, etc.
  10. It’s mobile ready
