As an open-source Web portal, DotNetNuke is a highly efficient content management system best suited for building commercial Web sites, corporate intranets and extranets, and online publishing portals. Being an open-source software with a BSD licensing agreement plan, DotNetNuke is free of cost and can be used for any commercial or non-commercial application. Just giving credit to the DotNetNuke community can suffice the requirement for extensive use of this user-friendly software. Built on a robust Microsoft ASP.NET (VB.NET) platform, DotNetNuke is easily installed and hosted. By downloading and installing the software, you have all of the features and tools required to create and manage your Internet or Intranet site, including its layout, content, security, email client, search engine submission and membership plans. Virtually no programming skills are necessary.


The most important advantage with DotNetNuke in Web hosting is that the user is the site administrator.  Using a highly advanced browser-based Web management system, you have the convenience of managing your site with little or no training. This saves time and money, and adds speed and efficiency to your operations as the intermediary developers are eliminated. Content creation and configuration aspects do not require any additional support services, meaning greater and speedier returns on your merchandize investments. As the software has a modular design, you have the opportunities to market niche products like site templates, premium content management modules and multiple database options to your DotNetNuke clients. As DotNetNuke separates site content from site design, the possibilities for marketing highly tailor-made templates to your clients increase considerably.


DotNetNuke is based on Microsoft technology and includes the .NET framework, meaning you can conveniently work on your existing infrastructure such as Windows Servers, database servers and development tools. The software is also very flexible and integrates well with your built-up systems and automated environments, and requires minimum interventions. Consequently, you have more time to focus on your sales instead of support aspects. With regular updates and introductions of new features, it continues to create value for your Web hosting business in a sustainable manner.


DotNetNuke is fully extensible and scaleable - it can be used to create a Web site of any capacity, from a small writers Web portal to a highly customized corporate Web site. Sites can even be augmented through third-party private assembly tools. DotNetNuke can support multiple portals off one install and the administrators have the advantage of managing any number of sites from this hosting account. DotNetNuke facilitates division of administrative options between the host level and the individual portal level, so there is complete independence and flexibility. It has fully customizable modules that allow a wide variety of changes at all levels. You can conveniently make changes in basic elements like font, type, color and bullet points, overall site appearance, and apply new skins and module containers to the site without affecting the content. DotNetNuke has very high security features on validation, encryptions, tracking ‘bugs’ and mitigating other potential threats. The multi-language localization feature available on DotNetNuke now makes it possible to roll out Web sites that are completely non-English and administrators worldwide would have no difficulty in handling the features.


The DotNetNuke community is growing. Currently there are more than 350,000 registered users and a fast expanding network of third-party developers, hosters and resellers. With a backbone of core programmers and the ever-growing community of users to help to troubleshoot any potential problems, DotNetNuke is never far away. Microsoft supports the DotNetNuke community, hosting the discussions forum on ASP.NET Web site. Shaun Walker of DotNetNuke acknowledged this by stating, “The community would not have grown to what it is today without the support of Microsoft…. There’s a lot of trust based on the fact that we have a solid working relationship with Microsoft.” This close relationship has helped DotNetNuke to take advantages of many cutting-edge features of MS Visual Studio.NET and ASP.NET, and ultimately makes the software even more flexible and user friendly.
