Portland, OR (PRWEB) July 03, 2014
The Drupal Association, the nonprofit that helps the Drupal open source project flourish, today announced a new program for hosting companies to connect with the Drupal community and help fund initiatives that further the Drupal project. The new Drupal Hosting Supporter program is designed to provide Drupal hosting providers a path to engage and educate about hosting options, best practices and each provider’s unique capabilities.
“There are many great hosting providers who are valuable members of the Drupal community today, and we know there are many more who want to engage and give back,” said Holly Ross, Executive Director of the Drupal Association. “This program gives hosting companies a meaningful path to connect with the Drupal community.”
One key feature of the Drupal Hosting Supporter program is the opportunity to take a security test. Companies who pass the security test can promote that they passed.
Other benefits include visibility on Drupal.org, in Drupal Association communications, and at DrupalCon events. There are also opportunities to educate about hosting types and best practices, and each company gets the chance to promote their unique capabilities.
