What is DotNetNuke?

The DotNetNuke technology has been developed with VB.NET for the ASP.NET framework and can be very easily implemented and hosted. DotNetNuke uses various database platforms for storage of contents viz, MS SQL Server, etc. The latest version of this technology framework is 4.5. The DotNetNuke community is currently supported by almost 125,000 registered users.

DotNetNuke is very flexible in easily creating new modules and linking to external resources. Although DotNetNuke is easy to work with and famed for its flexibility, many programmers are yet to adapt to it and still prefer earlier methods of programming. They cannot, however, deny the great content management part of this new web application framework.

Since its inception in 2002, DotNetNuke is a full-featured, open source web application framework that is applied for developing websites for corporate and commercial use, web based portals and intranet and extranet based applications. It is very effective as an open source content management system. In the very near past, a robust content-management system was a costly endeavor in the programming world. This was only affordable for large organizations and the usage had its limitations. DotNetNuke, being an open source application, changed all of this.

DotNetNuke does not have any licensing fees or per registered user fees associated with it. Anyone can download it and use it. Additionally, the application code is open and available to all. The user has full access to the source code to custom fit DotNetNuke to his needs. The DotNetNuke community is continually researching to develop new features and functionality as the software world adopts this system.

There are numerous content modules within DotNetNuke and these are growing every day. Typical examples are: Text, Images, Documents, Links, Events, News, Banner ads, Discussion forums, Email forms, Broadcast email, Site registration, RSS news feeds, etc. DotNetNuke can be downloaded from its official website.

The article is very informative, contains summarized information about DotNetnuke and can be a good treat for beginners to this new technology. This article should not be confused as a promotional article for Dotnetnuke as commented by some other readers, neither it is meant for
developers already knowing the basic concepts of this technology, and can only be treated as a bag of useful, introductory information on this new technology, ideal in providing an overview of its concepts and features. Looking forward to similar articles on latest technologies.
