Company Overview

AltaGrade is a web hosting platform for websites built on the popular open-source content management system Drupal. AltaGrade runs as platform-as-a-service (PaaS).

Because of our managed service delivery model, AltaGrade PaaS eliminates the need of organizations to maintain complex hardware, software and network infrastructure for their Drupal, Backdrop and WordPress websites.

With AltaGrade PaaS, it’s easy for enterprises to concentrate on just running their online businesses, because everything is managed by AltaGrade: operating system applications, runtime, data, middle-ware, virtualization, servers, storage and networking.


We purchased and configured our first server in 2003 and since then have been serving hosting needs of our Drupal customers. In 2010, our clients' needs and our own aspirations to provide the best Drupal hosting in the face of stronger and fiercer competition prompted the new name of our company - Drupal Companion, or simply Drupion.

We incorporated in 2013 and the number of our customers has grown to such an extent that we now have dozens of Drupal-optimized servers at different locations around the world. We serve a wide range of customers from individual bloggers to small, mid-sized and large companies to international agencies such as the UN, International Organization for Migration, Asian Development Bank, World Trade Organization.

In 2016, in response to the growing requests from our customers, we have extended our services beyond Drupal to include hosting for other types of web-applications.

On November 21, 2018 we have fully re-branded our company as Seattle, Washington-based AltaGrade LLC.

While growing our company and client base, we have learned and continue to develop the best ways of configuring our platform to host Drupal, Backdrop and WordPress websites. We are proud of our accomplishments and looking forward to many more years of successful service to our current and new customers.
