Dot Net Nuke - Web Application Framework

www.dotnetnuke.com Welcome to the Official Community and Development Site for the DotNetNuke Open Source Project. From Downloads to Documentation, DotNetNuke.com Offers a Comprehensive Base of Information, Resources, and Support to the DotNetNuke Community.

DotNetNuke Is…

Versatile – DotNetNuke is a Web Application Framework ideal for creating and deploying projects such as commercial web sites, corporate intranets and extranets, online publishing portals, and custom vertical applications.

User-Friendly – DotNetNuke is designed to make it easy for users to manage all aspects of their projects. Site wizards, help icons, and a well-researched user interface allow universal ease-of-operation.

Powerful – DotNetNuke can support multiple portals or sites off of one install. In dividing administrative options between host level and individual portal level, DotNetNuke allows administrators to manage any number of sites – each with their own look and identity – all off one hosting account.

Feature-Rich – DotNetNuke comes loaded with a set of built-in tools that provide powerful pieces of functionality. Site hosting, design, content, security, and membership options are easily managed and customized through these tools.

Supported - DotNetNuke is supported by its Core Team of developers and a dedicated international community. Through user groups, online forums, resource portals and a network of companies who specialize in DNN, support is always close at hand.

Easily Installed – DotNetNuke can be up-and-running within minutes. One must simply download the software from DotNetNuke.com, and follow the installation instructions.

Localized – DotNetNuke includes a multi-language localization feature which allows administrators to easily translate their projects and portals into any language.

Open Source – DotNetNuke is provided free, as open-source software, and licensed under a standard BSD agreement. It allows individuals to do whatever they wish with the application framework, both commercially and non-commercially, with the simple requirement of giving credit back to the DotNetNuke project community.

Extensible – DotNetNuke is able to create the most complex content management systems entirely with its built-in features, yet also allows administrators to work effectively with add-ons, third party assemblies, and custom tools. Site customization and functionality are limitless.

Recognized – DotNetNuke is a trademarked name, and a brand widely recognized and respected in the open source community. With over 225,000 registered users and a talented team of developers, DotNetNuke continues to evolve its software through participation, real world trial, and end-user feedback.
