Recently I have claimed a Domain on Reclaim Hosting and was told deploy one of the many apps available to a domain owner. The App I choose was Drupal which I spent some hours on after deploying. Firstly what is Reclaim Hosting and what is Drupal, Reclaim Hosting is basically buying a name for a website and having a server to function as that website in another part of the world. The need for this is if you have problems getting a server to run your website. The reclaim hosting provides its users with Apps, which use the server you are renting to manage files that are possible webpages and content you want public and this is where Drupal comes in.
With all that and some minor tweaks I managed to make a nice site which is http://ryanmurphyhosting.com/ . How this will help me in the future is that I can work on my skills with Drupal more to make a better site. Companies hire people who know how to use Drupal to make web pages, if I improved my skills further at some point I can be hired to make a page using Drupal. These companies would be the like of small businesses such as shops and businesses that don’t specialise in working with computers. I will say one thing about Drupal is that it is not for everybody since it is a lot of tedious work to get things going. I talked a lot about how it took me ages to get a working theme for my Drupal site that suited me but that was not the only area I struggled in. I was able to cope with those struggles because I had some knowledge of how to use Drupal I wouldn’t recommend Drupal to people who don’t know much about technology as Drupal is tough to use especially with reclaim hosting. The people who would get the best out of Drupal would be the people who know how to use it to make a site and the businesses that are looking for a way to advertise their company online.
