Why it's worth it to make the jump Top 5 Reasons to Upgrade Your DNN Site We run through the Top 5 reasons you should upgrade. BTW - it's not nearly as painful as it used to be! 1. Stronger & Better Security The number 1 reason why customers are willing to purchase from a business, especially online, is a sense of trust between you the merchant, and your customers, but the fastest way to erode that trust are security breaches that lead to data theft or an inability for your website to function as intended. There is a belief that similar to Moore’s Law, our understanding of technology and its applications grow at an exponential rate. However, this isn't exclusive to technology that has positive uses as those who seek to to use technology for malicious intent are also growing in their understanding of platform vulnerabilities daily. This is the reason that companies like DNN (DotNetNuke) continue to develop new and improved platforms to shore up vulnerabilities. Simply put, if you are on an outdated version of DNN (platform, Evoq or Engage), you may be at risk. 2. Performance? DNN 9 Has That Covered Performance covers many aspects of the use of a website. This can mean the ability to process requests quickly or how well Google can index your site and display it when potential customers are searching for your services. Lagging behind the current versions of DNN causes "unexpected" encounters with your website which can confuse search engines & plugins (i.e. your payment processor), which ultimately can lead to a degradation of your user experience. If you've been with DNN a while, you know how slow editing pages can be for Webmasters. Well, DNN 9 has dramatically improved not only the UI, but the entire Administrative interface and performance. It's faster than the other CMS's now when it comes to editing. There are a lot less page refreshes, as well as the ability to edit text in the HTML / Text module without launching the CK Editor.
