Choosing Between DotNetNuke and WordPress
Both advanced, scalable and versatile open source content management systems, WordPress and DotNetNuke significantly reduce the development time required to create engaging, user-friendly web sites. WordPress is a CMS geared towards publication, whereas DotNetNuke is more industrial strength, designed to facilitate the building of online communities and increasing user engagement. Both of these technologies are incredibly valuable for companies interested in building their brands.
WordPress has a fairly narrow focus compared to other popular content management systems, such as DotNetNuke. This narrow focus can be either detrimental or beneficial depending on what a company wishes to do. For companies and professionals interested in creating a blog-based or simple content site with easy management and customization, WordPress is the perfect tool: a hammer for a nail.
But for those who are looking for advanced customization options and to develop a more powerful, robust website, DotNetNuke is the better option. DotNetNuke can facilitate a more complex content environment with well-developed communities. DotNetNuke can be used to drive more complex web solutions such as eCommerce and be used as a foundation for custom web applications built on top of Microsoft ASP.NET. Consequently, DotNetNuke may be a little more complicated to develop on and maintain but is well worth it in the long run.
