What exactly is WpDotNet?

Frequently Asked Questions

Before you dive into WpDotNet, please get familiar with some of the basics of the product. Watch our introductory video to help you get started.

WpDotNet is WordPress compiled to .NET Core using PeachPie compiler. This means that the original source code of WordPress, which was written in PHP, has been migrated to the .NET platform, which provides the following benefits:

  • - Improved performance
  • - Enhanced security
  • - Extensibility in C# and other .NET languages
  • - Extensibility using Razor partial views
  • - Ease of configuration
  • - Running natively on Azure

With WpDotNet, you get all the richness of the WordPress ecosystem, but with the robustness, security and performance of .NET. There are, however, a few key differences compared to regular WordPress:

  • - Sourceless distribution: you don’t need any PHP sources on your server with WP.NET
  • - No server-side PHP changes: because WP.NET is compiled PHP code, we do not allow for unsafe practices, such as making changes to the code on the server. If you want to modify the sources, you’ll have to re-compile and re-deploy the project. You’ll thank us later.
  • - Plugins and themes: due to the previous point, plugins and themes also need to be compiled; therefore, you won’t be able to upload a new theme or download and install plugins like you’re used to from WordPress.
