In the DNN Platform architecture, multiple websites can be created on top of an underlying web application framework. Each site consists of multiple pages and mini-applications called modules that provide specific functionalities such as e-commerce, blog, news and more or feed companion mobile apps on iOS and Android. These modules may appear on multiple pages of the same or different sites Making DNN head and shoulder above any other CMS in the market.

The DNNPlatform runs on the Microsoft web stack, at home on premises or in the cloud.

Advanced Skinning and Template Engine

The platform makes it easy for our designers to develop skins and templates that customise bespoke designs into compelling websites, applications or companion iOS and Android Apps. Our designers can create layouts using Photoshop to visualise and later turned into HTML, CSS and JavaScript, or to develop the design as a set of ASP.Net user controls (ASCX). Once complete the design can be packaged in as extensions for easy validation, distribution and installation..



Provider based platform

The solutions are built from the ground up to be extensible. Most of the platform is implemented using a model based on providers, extensions that replace existing functionality in the core solution. This model enables super users and administrators, with the most advanced level of permissions – to quickly change base functionalities of the solution such as authentication. Key types of providers are the rich text editor, authentication, membership, search, logging, and caching. This ability allows the platform to be one of the most extensible CMS in the market suitable for sites with millions of users.
