Our developers use Umbraco to make your website unique.
Over 500,000 websites are powered by Umbraco, from startups to leading global brands.
Our .NET web developers are based in the heart of Bristol and are experienced in using Umbraco to create dynamic websites for all types of businesses.
Umbraco is a leading Content Management System (CMS) built on Microsoft’s .NET framework. The platform is open-source (license-free), meaning that our Umbraco developers can build a website with a massively extendable structure that provides an unrivalled content-editing experience for marketers.
Among the many benefits of Umbraco are its great user interface, strong internet security, speedy loading times and the high level of flexibility in its design and functionality. The huge potential for personalisation sets it apart from other CMS platforms and creates endless possibilities for your website.
One of our developers’ favourite aspects of the platform is the Umbraco custom grid editor function. This allows you to insert content into a predefined layout, which you can customise to tailor the grid to your exact needs. The result is full flexibility in editing pages, which will help you to really make your website unique.
Another great feature of the CMS is the Umbraco multisite functionality. This means you can use one Umbraco instance to host multiple sites with different domains. So if your organisation has multiple subsidiary brands, or needs to use a different language for each location, the sites can all share views and stylesheets to make managing your business as seamless as possible.
Umbraco 7 minimum hosting requirements include:
- Windows Server 2003 or higher
- ASP.NET 4.5 framework. or higher
- IIS 7+
- SQL CE or SQL Server 2008 and higher
If this sounds confusing, don’t worry – our team of developers at Fanatic are highly experienced in Umbraco hosting and can offer a fully managed service to get your site running at its best.
At the Fanatic studio in Bristol we have an expert team of ASP.NET developers who can create bespoke .NET websites, and also customise an Umbraco website to integrate it with other web applications or to add bespoke functionality.
We offer a full support package, and run a quarterly Umbraco health check on the software to ensure it’s up to date, running efficiently and working hard. Our developers can implement a strict security approach, using Umbraco SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) to ensure your site is protected from attacks and your data remains in safe hands.
The newest version of the platform replaced Umbraco 7 in 2019, and proved to be the most seamless interface yet. Our .NET developers have been particularly impressed with the live preview feature, the language variations and the search bar in the back office which makes for easy navigation. The Nested Content also means you don’t have to use any more 3rd-party libraries for building flexible components.
Our in-house Umbraco developers can perform a migration of your site to Umbraco 8, so that you can take advantage of the far superior user interface and new features to take your website to the next level.
