Built on leading Java technology, dotCMS is head-optional, multi-tenant, cloud-based, enterprise-ready—and of course—totally open source. Say goodbye to vendor lock-in, and hello to total freedom and flexibility.
Open source software, including dotCMS, is built with assistance and insights from the community. Together, we spot and fix issues faster, and build solutions that make a difference both in theory and practice.
Open source software communities don’t just help construct the software, they support each other online and meet up for events offline—making for an actual community of like-minded professionals.
dotCMS clients can customize, extend, and scale their digital presences without limitations—without worrying about security flaws along the way.
Open source software doesn’t require licensing fees, nor are there any charges for the frequent updates applied by the software vendor.
Open source software protects you from vendor lock-in; meaning that you can freely export your site and data without limits. Plus, you can integrate with any third-party tool of your choice.
The dotCMS codebase is available on GitHub, where our team communicates new features and manages the transparent software development process.
Drag-and-drop editing, secure workflows, multilingual features, and multi-tenant capabilities all make up the dotCMS experience.
