Why Choose Drupion?

Content Management Systems like Drupal and WordPress can run on virtually any hosting environment from the very inexpensive shared hosting plans all the way to dedicated servers, and everything in between. However, some of Drupal and WordPress features require specific Apache, PHP, MySQL, SSH, GIT, Drush, Apache Solr, Varnish, APC, Memcache configurations that may or may not be available on any given hosting environment. Drupion supports all the features that Drupal and WordPress require.

As Drupal or WordPress website owners and developers we all hope that our website will become the next Internet hit, but in reality most websites build traffic and clientele gradually. Drupion's various hosting plans allow for the options to grow such capacity progressively with the client’s needs.

We help our clients' growth without binding yearly contracts and no limits to the number of websites that can be hosted under one of our plans. So at the end of the billing period our clients are never “surprised” by unexpected fees for extra websites and services that were not included into the plan they selected.

We provide 24/7 technical support and will try to do everything to meet our clients' most urgent or unexpected needs. At prices that are much lower than those of our competitors, we believe Drupion is the best choice for anyone – individuals, a small or large organization – to host Drupal and WordPress websites of any size and variety.

Why Choose Us?

There are thousands of hosting companies in the United States and around the world, and as the demand for websites grows so does the number of hosting companies. They all have different business philosophies, pricing models and ranges of customer-tailored packages.

It is difficult to provide “pros and cons” or “advantages and disadvantages” comparisons for the vast array of hosting companies because their business goals and approaches vary, just as their target customers do. Any such analysis will be highly contextual and unnecessarily take us into the area of opinions and judgments.

Instead, we have compiled factual information for you, as a potential customer, to make an intelligent decision as to which hosting company will best serve your needs. The graph below presents facts and quotes pulled from the websites of three leading Drupal or WordPress specific hosting companies. These are unavoidably general categories that provide a glimpse into the companies’ nature, business and pricing approaches. For more information and your own research, please refer to the companies’ websites and Drupal and WordPress forums.
