Drupal 6 CMS is the core of your Aurora CMS based website, designed to simplify the publication of content, in particular allowing content creators to submit content without requiring technical knowledge of HTML
This allows the site owner to create, edit, manage, and publish content in a consistently organised fashion with separation of content's semantic layer from its layout. For example, the CMS automatically sets the layout, fonts and emphasis of text.
Domain Name Services
Included with all AuroraCMS packages is the registration and management for your required domain name.
E-mail is a critical business application. Give your business a professional edge, with e-mail accounts like firstname.lastname@example.org with 500 MB of e-mail storage.
