Where to Host Your Drupal Site?

Drupal Version

There are a number of ways you can host your Drupal site on campus, which is strongly suggested for any unit-level website.

All units can take advantage of the central OIT Web Hosting service.  This service can host many popular PHP based content management systems, including Drupal and WordPress.  For those looking to quickly setup a unit-level website, OIT Web Hosting now supports Drupal Express, which will give you a jump start on building a Drupal based website by installing Drupal plus a number of standard add-on components, such as the official Georgia Tech website theme.

Should you choose not to use OIT's services, some Schools, Colleges, and other units have their own externally hosted or internally housed servers for web hosting. You should consult with the local IT representatives within the group to see if this is available.  In some cases, you may still be able to make use of Drupal Express by using the generic version of the Drupal Express installation script.
