Umbraco is a Content Management System (CMS) that has grown rapidly over the past few years, thanks to a thriving community and powerful functionality within the platform. With more than 400,000 websites now built on Umbraco, it has become one of the most deployed Web Content Management Systems on the Microsoft .NET platform. It’s also one of the top-5 most popular server applications and one of the 10 most popular open-source tools.

Umbraco is an open-source CMS built on the Microsoft .NET stack - meaning that a community of thousands of developers continually peer-reviews the behind-the-scenes platform making it a solution you can trust. Umbraco provides developers and content managers with a blank canvas which means users have complete control over their websites from start to finish. Umbraco keeps things simple, ensuring that your content is kept up-to-date and that everything runs smoothly. Plus, it’s extremely secure.

What do our developers have to say about Umbraco?

Umbraco provides a simple editing experience for content managers. We can create page templates and provide content managers with what is essentially just a form to fill in for each piece of content on a page. This means that creating a page really is as simple as filling in all the details in the back office.”
