Drupal is an extremely robust content management system (CMS) that will give you the tools necessary to get your website online and keep it up-to-date. A CMS does just that - it gives you the ability to create, manage, and update your website content without technical knowledge of website code. When people come to me about a CMS for their website, the two names I tell them are Drupal and Wordpress. Wordpress may have the big name recognition, but there are many instances where I would recommend Drupal over a Wordpress website.
Some specific requirements of your website that might lead to a Drupal recommendation are:
- Expected high traffic
- Advanced security and protection from hackers
- Several user account levels with varying permissions control
