Both Sitefinity and DNN can be good options for ecommerce implementations depending on needs.
Sitefinity Vs. DNN for ecommerce
If you have sales between $5 and $10 million annually. your content management system usually works with a
third-party ecommerce platform to get the best results for global shipping and marketing. Although both
Sitefinity and DNN can be used as components in a technology stack or independently for ecommerce, using a
third-party platform is usually necessary for delivering more robust marketing capabilities, CMS options and
complex product catalogs where both you, your stakeholders and customers have defined roles. Getting the best
results from your CMS depends more on your ecommerce platform than using built-in features of a CMS system like
Sitefinity or DNN (DotNetNuke). These systems provide content management services, and both have distinct
advantages and disadvantages for ecommerce applications, customer service, content integrations and integrating
with your clients' business systems.
Sitefinity, which was developed by Telerik, uses .NET standards and controls for managing templates, supports
responsive design and mobile marketing options and starts at around $2,999 for the standard edition. DNN, which
was formerly called DotNetNuke, powers about 800,000 websites around the world. Open-source, secure, scalable,
it works well for building and managing highly interactive websites and applications. Strong points in favor of
the DNN system include that it provides plenty of options for plugins and custom themes and offers customers a
choice between the free and professional editions. Statistically speaking, 4.46 percent of websites use
Telerik's Sitefinity while about 1.45 percent use the DNN CMS.
