Fastdot Drupal Hosting is designed to be a high performance, high reliability, highly scalable, and highly manageable Drupal Hosting infrastructure.
Our goal was to be able to quickly provision small and large sites, meet the enormous requirements of Drupal Web Hosting, and keep all of it running reliably.
Drupal is an open source modular framework and Content Management System (CMS) written in PHP. Drupal Hosting is used as a “back end” system for many different types of websites, ranging from small personal blogs to large corporate and political sites.
Fastdot loves Drupal, and our Drupal site owners recognize this, too.
Get the advantage with speedy, secure, rock solid infrastructure to host your Drupal Website.
The standard release of Drupal, known as “Drupal core”, contains basic features common to most CMSs. These include the ability to register and maintain individual user accounts, administration menus, RSS-feeds, customizable layout, flexible account privileges, logging, a blogging system, an Internet forum, and options to create a classic “brochureware” website or an interactive community website.
Drupal is the perfect Content Management System for both managing and developing your website with one of Fastdot’s cPanel Hosting plans.
100% Drupal Compatibility
Fastdot supports all the Drupal hosting requirements:
- PHP 5.2.4 or greater with PDO
- MySQL 5.0 or greater
- The mod_rewrite Apache module
Drupal was also designed to allow new features and custom behavior to be added by third parties. For this reason, Drupal is sometimes described as a Content Management Framework. Although Drupal offers a sophisticated programming interface for developers, no programming skills are required for basic website installation and administration.
Drupal core is the “stock” installation of Drupal, which can be optionally extended by third party contributions. In Drupal’s default configuration, website content can be contributed by either registered or anonymous users (at the discretion of the administrator) and made accessible to web visitors by a variety of selectable criteria including by date, category, searches, etc. Drupal core also includes a hierarchical taxonomy system, which allows content to be categorized or “tagged” with key words for easier access.
Drupal maintains a detailed of core feature updates by version.
Drupal core includes “core modules” which can be enabled by the administrator to extend the functionality of the core website.
The core Drupal distribution provides a number of features, including:
- Access statistics and logging
- Advanced search functions
- Caching and feature throttling for improved performance under load
- Comments, forums, and polls

- Multi-user content creation and editing
- RSS Feed and Feed Aggregator
