Like WordPress and Joomla, Drupal also is a content management system (CMS) used to publish web based content. Using Drupal, we can create websites and many custom web based applications. Drupal is an open source free software and is developed as a PHP and MySQL based application which has a file system to manage files and database to store data.
Drupal administrative backend can be used to manage the website or web application content which can help you edit, add and update any content with minimal effort and training. However, Drupal is somewhat technically advanced as compared to WordPress and Joomla when it comes to ease of using the user interface.
Drupal websites can be designed by either developing a custom design or by using ready to Drupal templates. Its functionality can also be extended by using thousands or ready to use free and paid plugins known as extensions. However, the quantity of these extensions are not as high as WordPress and installation of these extensions is not like WordPress using the admin interface. In Drupal, we have to add the URL to upload a template or extension file. In other words; Drupal is even more complex than Joomla in terms of uploading the extensions and understanding the admin interface and backend management.
Drupal website has SEO (Search Engine Optimization) friendly URLs and with professional expertise in coding and design we can achieve the best performance in establishing a higher rank in search engines using organic keywords.
