Drupal is a content management system (CMS) that is widely used to power a wide range of different websites such as e-commerce sites, directories, corporate websites and blogs. Hosting a Drupal site on Liquid Web is very easy, as one-click installation is available on some of their plans through Softaculous, Fantastico or other web based installation tool.
Any website that uses a CMS, as opposed to a static site will require more resources and will thus demand a high quality web hosting solution to run properly. Liquid Web offers its hosting clients with flexible hosting plans that can accommodate Drupal sites and much more.
The company was founded in 1997 and now has 3 wholly owned data centers, serving more than 20,000 clients from all over the world. The fact that Liquid Web's data center facilities are entirely self-owned gives them more control over their servers and allows on-site technicians to respond immediately should a problem be detected. This minimizes the chance that your website will suffer any downtime as a result of a server failure.
Liquid Web currently offers shared, VPS, cloud and dedicated server hosting. If you want to build a relatively simple Drupal site that receives a moderate amount of visitors, their shared hosting plants are something you should check out first.
Unlike other hosts, Liquid Web doesn't take a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to hosting. They have 3 different plans, all of which come with unlimited emails, unlimited MySQL databases, detailed website statistics and daily backups.
The standard plan gives you 2 free domain names, 5GB of storage space, 120 GB of monthly bandwidth, 5 subdomains, unlimited email accounts and the ability to host 2 domains on your account. Additional domains cost $5 a month extra.
There are many things that separate Liquid Web from the competition and make it one of the best choices for Drupal hosting. While their prices may seem higher than the competition, Liquid Web offers you many things that the cheaper hosts do not. They don't force their users to pay several years of hosting in advance, instead you can opt for a monthly plan. They guarantee 100% network uptime and an initial response within 30 minutes of contacting support. The company's technical support is never outsourced and can be contacted by email, live chat or by phone. With 24/7 monitoring, Liquid Web is one of the most reliable web hosts that you can find and is used by many large businesses to power their websites.
