Sitefinity is a strong CMS with very scaleable capabilities.

Reviewed on 2018/02/14

It manages our site content very well, and provides the level of analytics we need.

It manages our site content very well, and provides the level of analytics we need.

Pros

Sitefinity has strengths surrounding template management, document management, and page creation. The drag-and-drop capabilities are very useful, and are easy to brand with HTML and CSS. Our team uses this CMS for both of our corporate websites, and use multi-site management to switch from each site. If you are managing multiple websites, this is a great feature.

Cons

Publishing pages, and making significant changes to the website can often slow it down for a couple of minutes, or take some time to initialize. Not a big deal, but visitors during that time will be greeted with a "Initializing" message.

Professional cloud base CMS deploy from Azure

This is a good CMS for someone who is new to the site or companies who needs a professional site and does not know where to start and who needs professional and committed support. Because as someone who has been active in the field of IT and internet business consulting for more than 14 years, setting up a website is a separate issue, and maintaining and developing it is another issue and you should always have an IT expert and support team by your side. Sitefinity can be one of your best options.

Pros

It's so professional and easy to use Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) CMS with professional team support. No need to constantly update or maintain files and backups. All you need is them on a secure cloud under Microsoft Azure. If you are a content author or webmaster this platform simplifies your tasks for updating content, managing files, and maintaining the site, and is smart automation under the cloud.

Cons

Features are good by default, some unnecessary parts may be disabled, it is better so that unnecessary JavaScript code does not slow down the site.

Alternatives Considered

Solodev CMS, HubSpot CMS Hub and WordPress

Reasons for Choosing Sitefinity

Looking for a CMS platform with good PAAS cloud features for our customers.

Reasons for Switching to Sitefinity

It's easy to learn and run via Azure Marketplace. Great responsive support.

"A good software to use and affordable to buy for anyone."

The built-in widgets make the tool demanding among many users and offer a wide range of content services. Thus, it is useful for blogs, websites, social media, and many more. The software collaborates with multiple numbers of platforms like the Marketo and HubSpot etc. hence, it is considered a straightforward tool with easy-to-use keys and a simple dashboard style. Many users find it non-functional but a maximum number of people find it functional in many ways. The best thing is reasonable pricing and appropriate features that make this tool more premium than freemium. Thus, it is a good software to use and affordable to buy for anyone.

Pros

The best thing about this system is that it supports many functions with a convenient user interface. So, the system comes with the best backend features and makes the site more appealing to the audience. Furthermore, the tool comes with built-in CRM and API services which are quite attractive. The software has loaded features that help you in many ways.

Cons

The most unwanted thing about this tool is that the developers don't offer recent updates. Thus, the tool is lagging and becomes clingy many times while operating. The software doesn't provide drag plus drops features offering multiple bugs while processing. The pathetic functionality with poor customer support makes this software less demanding. Moreover, the software comes with a poor documentation process and the adaptation is a bit difficult using this tool. Therefore, the creators should make it more functional and productive for adding more value.

Sitefinity is a fairly lightweight .NET based CMS which means that you can customize it just about however you need. That is for better or worse.

Pros

Compared to other .NET based CMS we looked at: Very low learning curve, able to get up and running quickly. Updates come quickly and with features and fixes from the community. Able to handle thousands of pages.

Cons

Some features are finnicky especially during upgrades. Backend interface isn't yet consistent, but that is improving. Caching options are lacking.

We switched to the Sitefinity platform in 2012 and really like this very affordable proprietary solution that is simple to maintain.

Pros

I went from being the only person inputting content onto our website to an admin that was able to show product managers how to easily input their own content. As a result, we have many more web pages than ever before.

Cons

A few weird little glitches with their "MVC" content widgets.
