DNN, formerly known as DotNetNuke, is an ASP.NET-based content management system that has been widely adopted by ASP.NET developers. DNN is an ideal choice for businesses seeking a CMS for their website or enterprise web solution. Its open-source code allows for easy manipulation, enabling the system to quickly adapt to meet the unique needs of different businesses. Here is why DNN should be your content management framework:

⟩⟩ Unmatched security

One of the key advantages of using DNN is its unmatched security. With user security based on groups, each user group is granted its own permissions. This built-in security model sets DNN apart from other CMSs that require third-party plugins, modules, or applications to achieve similar levels of user permissions and security.

⟩⟩ Ultimate flexibility

Another advantage of DNN is its ultimate flexibility. Being based on ASP.NET, it is highly extensible with custom modules that can easily integrate with virtually any business application, including Microsoft Dynamics CRM and ERP applications.

⟩⟩ Portal based architecture

DNN’s portal-based architecture also allows for running multiple websites on a single DNN CMS installation, making it highly beneficial for businesses that need to manage intranet sites alongside their company website.

⟩⟩ Great for applications or intranets

Because of its flexible customizable code base and architecture, DNN can be a great host for web apps or intranet sites. This is helpful for businesses that want to manage many different apps on one CMS platform.

⟩⟩ Simple content editing and creation

DNN’s customizable code base and architecture make it an excellent host for web apps or intranet sites, with simple content editing and creation facilitated by its robust and rich text editor. For larger teams, content workflows can be put into place for permission setting and approval management.

⟩⟩ Advanced features

DNN’s advanced features, both inbuilt and with third-party modules, can be highly effective for businesses of all sizes. These include user management, email marketing, document management, multilingual capability, blog management, and several other modules designed to help businesses in various ways.
