What’s DotNetNuke?

DotNetNuke is an open source platform for building web sites based on Microsoft .NET technology. DotNetNuke is written in VB.NET and distributed under both a Community Edition BSD-style license and a Professional Edition proprietary license. DotNetNuke’s content management system is extensible and customizable through the use of skins, modules, data providers, language packs and templates.

DotNetNuke has its own advantages:

  • Easy Access, Any Time, From Anywhere. Because access to the portal is via the web, information on the portal can be obtained at any time, from any location.
  • Update the layout and content when you want to or need to have it done
  • Reduce costs for site maintenance by doing it yourself
  • Share the load – give others authority to edit and update some or all the site

With so many advantages, DotNetNuke is becoming the first choice of CMS application for the ASP.NET developers

What’s Joomla?

Joomla! is a Content Management System (CMS) for building rich, dynamic websites quickly. With Joomla, there is no software needed. An easy to use, non technical browser based interface allows you to manage every aspect of your website including content, images, videos and more, all directly from your browser.

Joomla websites can look really nice, but the administration of them takes a little getting use to. You need to go to a completely separate area to administer the web site and things don’t seem to be as organized as they could be.


What’s WordPress?


WordPress is a light-weight framework, which is perhaps more suited to small scale blogs and websites. The security issues and lack of some important features perhaps limit its application for large scale business orientated websites, although the one-click upgrade path is extremely useful. It makes a great blogging engine.
