Anyone here use DotNetNuke?

7 replies
My brother has been telling me about dotnetnuke and how it would be much easier for me to build simple niche sites over wordpress. Plus I could have it all on one hosting account with multiple sub domains.

Anyone out there using it? Would this be better to use than wordpress for simple niche sites?

    If you are building a simple niche site wordpress is way better than DotNetNuke. I have used it a little before and that is comparable to Joomla and Drupal in the php world.

    DotNetNuke would have a lot of overhead for just a simple website.

      I agree with Rizzy, it's a lot of overhead for a simple website. It also requires Windows, rather than Linux, hosting which is typically more restricted in terms of features and often more costly.

      Where DotNetNuke really shines is on smaller corporations who already have their own Windows based web servers. It is less expensive than Microsoft's Sharepoint although, like Sharepoint, it can be extended by a decent .NET programmer.

    I'd run away from any CMS that has "Nuke" in
    it's name. Trust me, it's from personal experience!

      Agreed. I used to use Nukes a lot. Now I won't touch them. And if I stumble upon a site based on a Nuke, I close that tab and get on with life. Had to do enough support that I don't want to see another one!

    Absolutely, WordPress is the 'no-brainer' choice.

    Especially if you have it down, WP is easier, has way more support, too easy to get or hire help and for simple niche sites....

    lots of easy plugins to make the job sooooo easy!

    just my 2 cents.
