Best CMS Systems for Porn Sites

Content management systems (CMS) power sites of all types. The Adult Site Broker website is built on the popular open-source content management system WordPress. We recently wrote a blog post about the best blogging platforms for creating your adult content-oriented website. 

 

But, that post covered mainstream blogging platforms primarily. In this blog post, we discuss our findings related to the best content management systems that cater directly to adult websites. This blog features hosted builds on open-source CMS systems and a lineup of providers who specialize in adult content of all types, including adult e-commerce and nude art photography.

ElevatedX

Found at ElevatedX.com, this provider of proprietary content management system solutions is a powerhouse in the adult entertainment space. Premium adult film studios and the paysites for several imprints use the ElevatedX CMS to host and communicate their content to the internet. Studios like Grooby, Penthouse, and CockyBoys.com are just a few of the over 2,000 adult sites that use ElevatedX and the company’s various offerings for producers and content creators. The offering that was created specifically for content creators is called ELX Complete and features an 80/20 split revenue model for creators looking to create their own content membership sites.

StagCMS

StagCMS.com is another provider of proprietary content management system solutions. Stag’s focus appears to be a turnkey CMS solution for content creators and independent studios. Like the more popular ElevatedX, StagCMS offers a variety of tools that can assist webmasters in their efforts to monetize and distribute content to their fans and site traffic in the most effective and simplest way possible. Pricing for the StagCMS platform starts at $199 per month and ranges to custom pricing for unlimited site builds and high-volume traffic. Comparatively more expensive for an independent small-time creator versus ELX Complete or ModelCentro, but the StagCMS licenses feature all tools and assets, including protocols for clip stores and payments.

AdultMemberSites

AdultMemberSites.com is an all-in-one hosted content management system solution that is similar to ModelCentro. Adult content creators can create their own membership sites with a variety of engagement and monetization tools to maximize potential payouts from users and fans. AdultMemberSites provides a proprietary messaging platform to monetize premium sexting and content sharing between creators and their fans, while also enabling site-unique live streaming and branding options. Selling itself as the platform that enables creators to “own your own brand,” AdultMemberSites is a very well-built platform for those with absolutely no web or technical expertise and are simply looking for a home for all of their content and fan interactions without having to rely on the premium social networks like OnlyFans, LoyalFans, or ExclusvLife.

Adult SiteRunner

AdultSiteRunner.com is a provider of content management systems that cater heavily to the gay vertical of porn. Most of the websites that the company showcases as an indication of the tech and design prowess of their platform include gay studio and imprint paysites like PlayDaddy.com and NaturalBornBreeders.com. Straight and other niche porn can be found on websites that are powered by Adult SiteRunner, also. The platform is an all-in-one cloud solution with marketing, design, and monetization options available. In addition, the CMS offers a one-click downloading protocol for membership sites that offer scenes for download. Adult SiteRunner is also fully integrated with the high-risk payment processor CCBill.com and has three XBIZ Awards.

PornX WordPress Theme by ViceTemple

We’ve written about ViceTemple before. For a reminder, ViceTemple is a very popular adult web hosting provider with cloud and bare metal servers. In addition to their hosted options, they offer prebuilt themes for WordPress. The PornX WordPress theme is definitely our favorite because the web build is designed to emulate an adult tube site. Running content management plugins that are unique to ViceTemple, the PornX theme allows for quick launch and easy management of a tube site concept that you may have for a fully integrated and functional theme. The theme is also available via a cost-effective lifetime license of $99. Compared to other adult industry WordPress build providers, this is a steal. ViceTemple is also a highly trusted tech company.

Porn CMS

PornCMS.com is another all-in-one content management system provider that caters to the role of producers and independent content creators. The websites are fully integrated with the cloud hosting Porn CMS provides, and are fleshed out with their features that enable monetization. A pornstar or a model just getting started can simply “plug and play” with Porn CMS and develop a site that is unique to their brand and hosts their content as if it were a major adult paysite or site for a studio. Pricing is quite affordable with plans starting at $49 per month, featuring options for site managers ranging to about $695 per month. There is also an option to add on a site for a fee of $99 per site that is added to the plan in place with Porn CMS. It is just another option that is cost-effective and focuses on ease of use, rather than intense web technical developments.

ClickCastX

ClickCastX.com is another content management system provider. Nominated for a variety of XBIZ Awards, this option for content management is one of the largest in the adult industry. The ClickCastX.com platform is in its fifth software iteration and recently developed and released an offering for content creators. Users of this CMS ecosystem enable photo and recorded video management and monetization, including live streaming for models who wish to create their own community free from live cam sites like Chaturbate or premium social networks like OnlyFans. The plans for ClickCastX start at $149 per month with an option to purchase a lifetime license for nearly $9,000. ClickCastX Fans version, built for models looking to create a paysite, is $299 per month, as is the professional version of the software. Features are dependent on the plan.

ModelCentro

Our last entry for this post is ModelCentro.com. ModelCentro is a content management system that we’ve written about several times before, and there is a reason. ModelCentro is one of the best all-in-one content management systems for independent adult content creators looking to build fansites and paysites based on their own fan bases and web traffic. It is a great alternative for creators who rely on premium platforms like OnlyFans, giving adult creators the freedom to build their own digital presence, use their own domain name, and take home a solid chunk of the revenue from their sites. ModelCentro sites are free to launch, with the company itself only earning on processing fees and a cut from a 75/25 split revenue model. ModelCentro gets 25%.
