In today's web world, it can be a daunting task to make a good website that caters to your needs as well as your customers'. Since the web has blown up for the past few years, it can be difficult and confusing for business owners and web newbies to choose the right software for the job. Fortunately, the web itself has come about to offer a solution: Drupal.
Drupal is an open-source software package that allows you to make, edit, manage and publish content for your website. Open-source means that unlike other softwares that require purchase before use (e.g. Microsoft Office), softwares that are open-source are free and available to anyone interested. It also means that the software's source code (basically the "DNA" of the software) is available for viewing by anyone.
Since Drupal is open-source, it has quite a few developers (over 600,000!) working on and contributing to the Drupal corpus of web-based software. This "army" of programmers can contribute, edit and provide feedback to hundreds of modules used with Drupal, which means that the software is tried and tested for quality and efficiency to an exhaustive extent. It also means that a wide variety of people use Drupal, which includes everyone from small organizations to multi-national companies. Therefore, the software that is produced must be up to par with everyone, meaning you get enterprise-level support when using Drupal. You have the world's top developers contributing and editing web-based software that anyone in turn can use; that's a package you can't afford to miss out on!
What makes Drupal so effective and distinct is the nearly endless level of customization involved. Whenever a developer adds a module to the Drupal software corpus, it can be used in conjunction with virtually another module already existing in Drupal. This means that you can combine literally thousands of different modules to form something amazing on your website, and it's all open to the public! In fact, the White House chose Drupal as its content management system (CMS) for its own website.
