Web Hosting NewsHERNDON, Va. – BlackMesh, a provider of information technology solutions for small and mid-sized businesses, today announced its Optimized Drupal Hosting Platform, specifically designed to provide reliable, scalable hosting capabilities for Drupal-based Web sites. Available now, BlackMesh’s customizable solution will enable Drupal developers to improve the performance of their Web sites, while at the same time enhance and simplify security by automatically synching with daily updates.

Drupal, an open source content management system, has experienced immense growth in popularity as more businesses, individuals and government agencies build Web sites with Drupal for its ease of use, scalability, extended availability of features and modules. In addition, users have easy access to an engaging open source community. While organizations are quick to appreciate the benefits of Drupal for designing Web sites, many do not have the bandwidth or understanding to manage the infrastructure needed to host Drupal sites.

In addition, our customers have access to our unlimited customer service, as well as the architectural support and scalability necessary to grow their Web sites.”
