Umbraco CMS

Umbraco is a highly flexible open-source content management system. Build your website on a platform that doesn’t charge an arm and a leg.

Not sure which direction to go between open-source or proprietary content management? Umbraco gives much of the systematic management required for simple content editing as well as a solid frame work for custom functionality. What we love about Umbraco is that a decent chunk of your budget potentially spent on a subscription based content management system can instead be put into development of custom designs or functionality. Developers can achieve seamless integrations, and content editors can handle content management without needing to use code (or dig through layer of interfaces to figure out how). Umbraco is a great CMS option for small or large organisations wanting freedom matched with performance.

Umbraco is a flexible content management system that can evolve alongside you. Emphasis is placed on developing what you need, rather than a license model that requires you to pay for features you do not use or need.

Umbraco is a unique open-source .NET CMS. It utilises a model view controller (MVC) based architecture while offering all the goodness that you would expect from a typical CMS such as quick page creation, content editing, drop and drag widgets, and versioning. The best bit is that Umbraco is free, this means you can spend more time focussing on custom features and content. There are alternative CMS platforms that support MVC architecture, Umbraco’s approach is intuitive and allows much of what could be achieved with closed source CMSs (license/paid platforms) with the benefit of being developed on the newer Microsoft technology stack. 


Why we think Umbraco is a great CMS.


  1. It is a flexible modular CMS – you can manage content your way, every project has different needs and requirements, the platform is neat and open for change.
  2. Intuitive editing experience – back your content administrators in giving them the power they need, no more having to ask a developer to update a word, picture or layout.
  3. Faster time to market – supporting the agile delivery model, Umbraco is designed to fit all the flows of your team - your developers’ as well as your editors’.

True multi-channel delivery where you manage content in one place.


A "well built" site has been reviewed by Umbraco (that has around 50,000 unique visitors per day or something like ~1.5 million per month. It performed ‘very well’. We recommend though for those enterprise level sites or high traffic ones that you consider Umbraco Cloud Professional and Umbraco Cloud Enterprise with a secure dedicated server.

By default, Umbraco Cloud runs all Umbraco version 8 projects on .NET 4.8, Umbraco 9 projects on .NET 5.0 and Umbraco 10 projects on .NET 6.0.

Depending on how your pages are built, Umbraco by default displays content in a page tree view side by side to the content editing area. Pages are typically built with widgets, that can have a live preview mode or a settings/option panel to change content per widget. Alternatively, Umbraco can support ‘page types’ for a more headless style content management approach. Want to see it for real? Book a demo with our team to see the backend.
