Currently, there are over one million websites that use Drupal as their main platform.

With Drupal, you can design and develop a highly functional website from scratch, with a lot of content, and scalable over time.

More and more companies, universities, digital media outlets, government institutions, and organizations are adopting Drupal to create their official institutional websites, and this is due to several characteristics that Drupal possesses.

Scalability in both functionality and content: While it is possible to create a simple institutional website with just five pages, Drupal truly shines when it comes to managing a large amount of content. For example, a digital newspaper, a company blog that regularly publishes news, educational programs for a university, a multilingual website, and so on.

Companies and organizations that use Drupal typically have well-developed websites with a significant amount of content (starting from 50, 100, 500 pages). And that's where Drupal starts to show its usefulness.

They may also require the ability to quickly incorporate new functionality, and Drupal facilitates this task thanks to its modular system and the vast number of available modules in the community. So, if the website requires it, you can easily incorporate features such as a newsletter subscription block, an events calendar, a list of related news in a specific section of the page, new navigation menus, a survey block, and more.

Ease of content self-management by different users: This is also very important. On one hand, Drupal allows for the creation, configuration, and uploading of different types of content. Additionally, it provides specific permissions to site editors. Therefore, within an organization, there can be individuals responsible for updating certain areas of the site, editors in charge of maintaining other sections, and so on. Multiple users can coexist, easily and quickly loading and updating the website according to their respective roles.

Security and performance: Drupal is a secure CMS that is regularly updated thanks to the community's efforts. We recommend performing module and core updates regularly to keep the site up to date. In terms of performance, Drupal includes caching and file compression for CSS and JavaScript files by default. This is especially important for high-traffic websites.

In another article, we will compare WordPress and Drupal and discuss when it is appropriate to use one or the other.

In general, companies, universities, organizations, and digital media outlets that use Drupal do so because they have large websites with a substantial amount of content and traffic. At the same time, they need a scalable, easily self-manageable, secure, and high-performance platform.
