# WeAreInetum

Our hashtag to tell existing and new employees what we stand for as an employer. But also the hashtag that conveys our pride. We have plenty of strengths and daily successes to celebrate.

Hosting a Drupal website deserves the same amount of attention as its development, but often does not receive it

A poor hosting set-up will throw a spanner in the works, even if the development of your website went smoothly. What we see is that a lot of attention is given to development, while hosting is treated as a side issue. In addition, the hosting configuration is often done by a developer, even though these are clearly two different areas of expertise. Focusing on an optimal hosting strategy delivers better integration, a more efficient website, and better cost efficiency. Is the hosting of your website in good shape?

How websites can benefit from our love of building

They say that Flemish people are born with a brick in the stomach – we just love building! This urge to build and renovate can also be applied to tackle your website. After all, a smooth digital experience is a business differentiator nowadays, with websites playing an important role as they are frequently visited touchpoints. There are a variety of strategies for building a new website or improving an existing one, from a prefab platform to a custom renovation or a mixture of the two.

Get more from your Drupal website

An online presence is no longer a differentiating factor, but a consistent digital experience is. Your (Drupal) website plays an important role here, as a frequently visited contact point. Improving Drupal, in terms of both the technical setup and the user experience, will noticeably boost the digital experience you offer. Take ownership of this important content platform and get the most out of it. We explain many symptoms of wasted potential and highlight corresponding quick wins.
