First of all, let me preface this post by saying that I am a long time DNN user, admin and advocate.  I have become quite disappointed lately at the lack of advancements in the DNN platform vs. other CMS packages, including, which is currently a far and away better CMS than DNN.  Why is it that DNN is still so kludgy with it's editing interface?  I am now a premium customer of and there is absolutely no comparison when it come to admin functionality in the editing interface.  I have hosted DNN websites for my clients for well over a decade now and it was not until recently when one of my own clients showed me the ease of (premium) compared to DNN.  There was no comparison. is the clear winner.  Is DNN ever going to have an HTML5 version?  For those who think is only full of ads, which it is for the free version, might want to take a look at the functionality of the premium version which is light years ahead of DNN.  I hope DNN  can catch up at some point, because right now, the contrast is stark!

Their ease of use and turn key solution is nice but I wouldn't call it a CMS. Sure, you build a quick web site, the templates are nice and it's easy to use but you have to host it there and they don't support custom code like modules in DNN. It's been a while since I was on Wix so I may be mistaken on those points but that's what I recall from my last interaction with them.
