Umbraco CMS is fully flexible

The Umbraco source code is free and available on GitHub under the MIT License, so anyone can get started with it.
Need to build a multilingual website with tons of integrations? No problem.
Need to spin up a quick and simple site with a contact form? No problem.

Whatever type or scale of your project, Umbraco will be able to handle it - and the cherry on top; with a customizable and editor friendly UI, no matter how complex a site you’re building, you know that your editors will still find it a breeze to edit.

Oh, and the cherry on top of the cherry - there's no need for you to spend time learning a new coding or templating language as Umbraco is based on C#, javaScript and Razor.

Neat and clean CMS

Start your new website without bloated code

Our aim with Umbraco is to always make it simpler - simpler meaning faster, more intuitive and perhaps most importantly, ensure that it doesn’t get in the way of your code. By giving you a neat and clean start, you are able to configure your site just the way you want to. No extra, unnecessary code and no limitation as to where you want to take it.

That doesn’t mean Umbraco is without nice features though. With things like the built-in caching as well as Razor templating, open APIs, customizable backoffice, support for multilingual and powerful search features, you get efficient and helpful tools and great performance right out of the box.

Open and documented APIs
