Drupal is one of the best web content management systems (CMS) that started to take shape in 2000 when Dries Buytaert was still in university. By the time he graduated, the software he had built was still nameless. When choosing a name for this software, Dries wanted to name it "dorp" as it meant "small village" in Dutch. However, he mistyped it into "drop". As soon as it was released, the community changed and grew. In 2001, Dries officially changed the name to Drupal, which is the English pronunciation of "drupal" meaning drop in Dutch.
Drupal facilitates publishing and sharing and is used among global enterprises, governments, higher education institutions, and NGOs. It publishes a single website and shares content in multiple languages across different devices. Drupal is the perfect CMS, allowing users to design and publish content easily. It can also be used as a website development platform. Drupal powers a wide range of digital experiences, including corporate and institutional websites, intranets, online directories, interactive websites, social media, commerce solutions, and marketing portals.
Since Drupal is an open-source platform, it is free to use and has a large community of users to support your project. A strong community of developers from every level can chime in to help with the development if an issue arises. Drupal offers frequent updates and foolproof security so you can relax knowing that your data is protected. And finally, it provides mobile-friendly themes, which have become more important when most people check their websites on their phones.
