Kentico ASP.NET Content Management System is a powerful, complete, easy-to-use, all-in one solution for your Website

What is a Content Management System?

A Content Management System (CMS) is a web application that enables you to easily manage the content of your website. Unlike static websites, CMS powered websites (also called "dynamic websites") allow you to edit text and images using a graphical user interface, without technical knowledge. Once your website design is prepared by developer, you can manage content by yourself. An important feature of a CMS is that it stores content in a structured format separated from design, so you can reuse it when you decide to change your website look.

Kentico ASP.NET CMS Inludes a complete E-commerce System.

The E-commerce module allows you to build on-line stores. It can scale from a simple ordering system for a single product to a large store with thousands of products.
Product Catalog
The product catalog is tightly integrated with content management repository which allows you to leverage the standard Kentico CMS features, such as permissions, full-text search, friendly URLs and others. The products can use custom document fields which allows you to easily publish technical specification of the products (e.g. a size of an LCD panel, resolution of a camera, etc.).
Product categories are defined as sections of the website and they can be nested up to 14 levels deep. You can also choose which products should be displayed as "featured", "new", etc.
The E-commerce modules allows you to sell configurable products, such as:

  • T-shirts of various sizes and colors
  • computers with various memory sizes, CPUs, graphic cards, etc.

You can easily define your own sets of option categories (colors, sizes, hard drives) and the way the customer configures the product – drop-down list, checkboxes or radio buttons. Every product can have its own options.

Kentico ASP.NET CMS Performance and Scalability

The Kentico ASP.NET CMS can scale from small websites of a few pages to large sites with dozens of thousands documents. Some of our customers successfully use Kentico CMS to manage websites of 30,000+ pages and we made a successful performance test of a website with 100,000 pages and 10,000,000 users in the database.
If you need high performance to handle large number of visitors, Kentico CMS can handle up to 16,000 page views per second on a single web server using the Full-page Caching technology. This technology saves often-used pages into memory. When another user comes to the same page, the CMS doesn't have to look into database or generate the page HTML code. Instead, it just takes the whole HTML code from memory and sends it to the client browser.
Kentico CMS has been optimized for high performance and it offers a variety of caching options that enable granular configuration of caching and performance:

  • web part-level cache
  • page-level cache (Full-page Caching technology)
  • website-level cache
  • image cache

If you need extra high performance or if you're looking for a fail-over configuration, you can use the built-in web farm support. It allows you to synchronize in-memory settings and uploaded files between multiple web servers. The performance tests show that Kentico CMS scales linearly with every new server added to the web farm.
Moreover, Kentico CMS supports SQL Server Replication which means you can distribute the load to multiple database servers. Web farm and SQL Replication allow for virtually unlimited scalability and performance.
