If you’re looking for a commenting system for your website that is lightweight, privacy-focused, and easy to use, Commento is a great option. It has all the basic features you need, plus some extras like markdown support and Disqus importing. But what makes Commento especially useful is its automated spam detection and moderation tools.
Adding Commento to your website takes less than 10 minutes, and it’s used by hundreds of bloggers, startups, magazines, and non-profits. Unlike services like Disqus and Facebook comments, Commento doesn’t sell your data or show you ads. So if you’re concerned about privacy, Commento is a great choice. And since it’s free and open source, you can be sure that your data will always stay safe.
Why you should use Commento
As anyone who has ever managed a website knows, comments can be a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, they can help to foster a sense of community and give readers a chance to share their thoughts and opinions. On the other hand, they can also attract spam, trolls, and other unsavory characters. Commento is a commenting system that is designed to strike the perfect balance between these two extremes. It offers all the basic features you need to add comments to your website, with additional features such as markdown support, Disqus importing, and voting. But what makes Commento especially useful is its automated spam detection and moderation tools. As a result, you can rest assured that your comments section will be free of junk, while still providing an open forum for honest discussion. Adding Commento to your website is easy and painless. It usually takes less than 10 minutes from start to finish. And because Commento is privacy-focused, you don’t have to worry about giving up your personal data in order to use it. Whether you’re a blogger, startup, magazine, or non-profit, Commento is the perfect solution for adding comments to your website.
For a flat recurring fee, you can use Commento on a single domain as long as you stay under 50,000 daily pageviews. That’s a straightforward business model that’s also sustainable. Commento costs just $10 per month OR $99 per year. Each Commento subscription is per-domain and cannot be shared across different domains. Commento requires a credit card for payment (Visa, Mastercard, American Express) — no PayPal, cryptocurrency, or ACH/wire. If you decide to cancel, you will not be charged again after your subscription period ends.
So why not give Commento a try? It might just be the perfect solution for your website’s commenting needs.
