So you’ve decided that DotNetNuke is the right platform for handling your content editing needs - but does it have the advanced security features required to support your business? The following article series will provide an overview of security features in DotNetNuke as well as tips on how to use specific features in the program.

DotNetNuke Security Features

There are a number of security features that are built into every edition of DotNetNuke. The primary security features are: security roles, permissions for content, and built-in administration accounts. Additionally, a robust set of tools helps you automatically monitor the health of your website, detect source code changes, and address potential threats. All DotNetNuke users are notified before any security updates take place.

Hosts and Administrators for DotNetNuke Security

A robust set of tools helps you automatically monitor the health of your website, detect source code changes, and address potential threats.

The built-in administration accounts are the main way in which you can take advantage of DotNetNuke’s security functions. The two basic built-in accounts are the Host and the Administrator accounts. The Host has access and control over a list of all hosted sites, along with their individual hosting information. The Administrator account, meanwhile, is only assigned on a per-portal basis, which means each administrator only has control over his or her own website.

Secure DotNetNuke Website Development

All website content is protected by default within the built-in security setting. From there, you can further specify who has access to which content via security roles. The groups you can customize website access for include, but are not limited to, registered users, subscribers, content providers, prospects, affiliates, and even the media (for press kits or other marketing collateral). You can also specify separate password-protected areas. Thus, everyone has ready access to exactly what they need, but no more.
