**Very important note about server security**
If you are planning to install in your website CMSs such as Drupal, b2evolution, Wordpress and the like, first of all ask yourself if it

We used to allow the installation of CMSs such as Drupal, b2evolution, Wordpress and the like, offering spaces for dynamic websites.
If you wonder about why we are not offering this option anymore, first of all ask yourself if it
wouldn't suit you best to [open a blog on our blogging platform Noblogs.org](/services/blog); we regularly maintain and update this software,

Since you're not the only one using our servers, but you're sharing a space, we think it is absolutely necessary that everyone is
responsible for what they install in the servers, because our boxes are self-managed and based on shared participation and responsibility.
But this expectation has not been meet, therefore we don't provide hosting for dynamic websites anymore. We spent too much time mending the
suddenly detected holes left open in old, often abandoned installations of outdated CMS'es, that had to urgently be deactivated.
In the website of the CMS you've chosen there will certainly be instructions about how to update your software: usually it's just a
question of replacing some old files with new ones, leaving contents as they are.
