The following modules and themes are available on all DotNest sites. You can watch our tutorial video about DotNest features too!
- Almost all built-in Orchard modules (see "limitations").
- Algolia Search by Lombiq: swap out the standard Lucene Orchard search with the hosted Algolia search engine. It's a very fast instant-like search engine and while on a basic level it's free you need a paid subscription for a lot of content. Click here to register and start using Algolia search on DotNest. If you want to just check out how such search works, see the Orchard Algolia Search Demo site here on DotNest.
