Okay. So, that’s old news. At the time of this writing, Drupal 8 (D8) has been Production-ready for just over two years. So, the question is no longer, “Is Drupal 8 ready for my Production site?” Instead, the question is, “When should I move to Drupal 8?” The ideal answer is - before you do any more major work to your existing site. (Of course, if you are readying to build a site from scratch then you should start with D8.)
An effective web presence is not “set it and forget it.” Indeed, the tasks that must be performed after your site or application goes live must be understood and detailed during the strategy [link to Strategy page] phase.
Our team of Drupal experts provides the critical support role to enable businesses to focus on their core skill set and not be concerned with site maintenance and management.
Drupal Support Services
Our Drupal support services are customized to the needs of your project and tailored to budget, timeline and scope criteria allowing you peace of mind with best-in-class Drupal support.
Drupal Site Maintenance and Management
Having a team of Drupal specialists available to provide expert advice, support, and issue resolution is fundamental to maintaining a purposeful digital presence. We can customize a defined package of support hours or be available as and when you need us.
Drupal Security Updates
As with any software, security updates must be performed to ensure you protect your site, users and business. In Drupal, it’s easy to click a big bold update button and cross your fingers…until something goes wrong and takes your site offline. Our security update process involves senior Drupal developers who understand the current state of your website, the maintenance and update needs of your site relative to security concerns, and then implementing changes in a methodical process using a multi-tier release workflow, which minimizes downtime and ensures your live site is secure.
Drupal Site Audit
Have an existing Drupal website? Perform a Drupal Site Audit executed by a team of Drupal experts to provide an objective understanding of the state of your site or application. We provide a comprehensive report that covers:
- Information Architecture
- ...and much more.
Sadly, we often onboard new clients who were completely unaware of the problems with their current Drupal site until we perform this site audit. Our objective reporting is a cost-effective way to ensure your digital presence remains efficient, effective, and manageable.
We offer only Drupal-specific hosting solutions. We do not try to be all things to all people. There are plenty of hosting providers that offer inexpensive hosting solutions that fit a variety of site technical requirements. Our hosting solutions are optimized for Drupal and allow our clients a single point of contact for their website or application needs. Our team is seamlessly woven into the unique requirements of the project, whether that is e-commerce, 3D rendering, or HIPAA compliance. Our hosting solutions are customized to you and can grow in real time as the needs of your business grow.
Domain Registration and Management
As part of our suite of support services we offer full or partnered management of your domains. When we manage your DNS configuration, we alleviate headaches for clients that rarely need to access or interact with these settings. This ensures a smooth release and management of sites and applications.
HTTPS is becoming the norm for all the right reasons and sites that do not have a valid SSL certificate are starting to be flagged by Google as “Not Secure.” Gone are the days where SSL is expensive or problematic. We offer full management and support of SSL certificates which allows your site to benefit from not only the encryption benefits, but also the SEO benefits it offers.

Excellent user experience (UX) is a major part of what makes an online business interaction a customer service win. A multitude of companies and services are at the fingertips of anyone who owns a computer or smartphone - 24 hours a day. If a visitor has to spend a long time trying to utilize the information or services on a website... well, they just won’t. They will move on to a competitor whose website meets their needs.
Why is Website Development so Important for SEO?
Everyday, millions of people use search engines (such as Google and Bing) to find information. Most company websites exist because they have answers, solutions and services people need. How can a company increase the odds their information will be shown in search engine results pages (SERP)? If many websites offer the same information, the better-optimized site is more likely to get more visitors.
