What is DotNest?

DotNest is a SaaS provider that gives hosted Orchard CMS web applications (think Wordpress.com for Orchard). This basically means that after registration you can create Orchard websites on DotNest without having to worry about hosting or maintenance. Orchard is always kept up-to-date and in good working order for you, you just have to use it. Want to know who are behind DotNest? You can watch our introductory tutorial video about DotNest to wrap it all up!

Do you have a Microsoft Azure subscription? You can add DotNest sites from the Azure Marketplace. Also, you can keep an eye on your DotNest sites with Azure Application Insights.

DotNest sites are part of a multi-tenant environment. While this enables us to provide you such a flexible service it also adds some limitations on what you can do from your site. Also see how DotNest works.
