The Death of DotNetNuke?

The Death of DotNetNuke?

May 21 2014

Maybe it's already dead, and when I say dead, I mean the brand name of "DotNetNuke", not the current version of the product. As DNN diehards know, DNN Corp changed the branding of DotNetNuke over to DNN. They changed the old domain name from dotnetnuke.com over to dnnsoftware.com. Even the software has been rebranded from DotNetNuke Community, Pro, Enterprise over to Evoke.

I was looking over Google trends and you can see that the search term "DotNetNuke" is pretty much dead, the forecast shows it continuing it's downward spiral into oblivion sometime in 2015.

Good news for DNNSoftware though is more folks are searching on "DNN", however, this doesn't provide a clear picture since "DNN" contains a lot of noise. "DNN" is the ticker symbol for Denison Mines Corp, but the trend line does appear to peak with "DotNetNuke" back in 2007, so there probably is much of the search traffic being generated by DNN'ers.

How about you? Do you miss the old "DotNetNuke" term? Or, does DNN and Evoke, work better for you?

For me, the term DotNetNuke does provide some fond memories being part of that initial rise in DotNetNuke community. Everything has it's day, and DNN has matured into much more than what it was. R.I.P. DotNetNuke, it's been a ride.
