DotNetNuke Hosting

What is DotNetNuke Hosting?

DotNetNuke hosting is the ideal platform to run DotNetNuke, a Content Management System used for building web sites and web applications on Microsoft .NET technology. DotNetNuke is used for developing commercial web sites, corporate sites, intranets and extranets, and online publishing portals. DotNetNuke’s easy to use interface enables even non-technical users to build new, interactive websites, or improve the functionality or features of their current websites.

DotNetNuke, also known as DNN, is an open source platform; meaning its code is made available for use or modification by users and developers. There are currently hundreds of thousands of websites developed on DotNetNuke, making it the world’s most widely used framework for building web applications on Microsoft technology.

What are the technical requirements for running DotNetNuke?

In order to successfully host DotNetNuke, you need to have SQL Server and ASP.NET 3.5 or upwards installed.

Can I remotely connect to my DotNetNuke database?

Yes. An added benefit of our DotNetNuke hosting packages, in comparison to many of our competitors, is that we allow full Remote Connections to your SQL Server based DotNetNuke database.
