    We have a website that is 100% dynamically generated from a database.
    What is the value of using Sitefinity for such a website, where the pages
    are 100% dynamically generated (ie. no online content management needed)?

    What is the overhead in coding "within" the Sitefinity API instead of just using .Net
    framework directly for various tasks?

    Thanks for your help on these questions.

    Hi David Livingston,

    Sitefinity works as each other ASP.NET web site and you can use each ASP.NET control in Sitefinity. Sitefinity's pages are not physical and they are stored in the database. You can use user controls to persists and display your data. You may find the following post useful Evaluating Sitefinity from Developer’s perspective

    Let me know if there are any further questions.

    Best wishes,
