What is Drupal?
We really would like to urge you to watch the video on the right. It will quickly give you a breakdown of what Drupal is and why we think its the best thing since sliced bread.
So, what is Drupal?
Drupal is a free software package that allows you to easily organize, manage and publish your content, with an endless variety of customization. It's open source and anyone can get access to it, extension modules and so much more right of the Drupal website.

But I heard Joomla and Wordpress is where it's at?
Namhost originally developed Joomla sites. We then moved over to Wordpress. And then finally, two years ago, we moved to Drupal and it's highly unlikely we'll ever go back or even turn to another framework or CMS. At least not any time soon.
Joomla and Wordpress are both excellent products. And to be honest, with all the latest developments, there is a good chance both could meet our requirements. But we choose Drupal because:
- We've built on our base version of Drupal for two years. It's got loads of modules, some custom written, to make it so much more powerful.
- We believe that the object orientated building techniques using content types that define one of the most significant parts of Drupal, is what gives us the ability to create custom content creation specifically suited for a specific client or business.
- With over 8 years of experience in web development, and over 2 years of Drupal-only web development, has made Namhost some of the best when it comes to Drupal.
