This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Are you considering all CMS's, commercial and open-source? – Dan Diplo May 6 '11 at 19:18
What particular features are you looking for. Because talking of best CMS without giving more details begs for this question getting closed as subjective. – Darin Dimitrov May 6 '11 at 19:19

See Web App Gallery's CMS category. There are quite a few with short description and user ratings.

I recommend Kentico. It is full featured and flexible.

There's no such thing as "best". You must have a matrix of functional requirements and product features, and a matrix of non-functional requirements and qualities. The ideal products for your needs comes out of that. Without enumerating those on your side, there's no way to even start.

Have a look at the annual CMS report produced by waterandstone.com - 2010 report - you will at least get the basis for an impartial decision.

I recommend AxCMS.net it's free but not open source. Also for online store I can suggest MojoPortal and nopCommerce

Composite C1 CMS is free open source and the best rated .net CMS at CodePlex. It can integrate with nopCommerce (free open source and best rated shop at CodePlex). Both are .net 4.0 based.

You can get it from the Composite C1 website or the Windows Web App Gallery.

As John state below, I'm on the Composite C1 dev team, so rely on the CodePlex ratings, not my word ;-)

If you're going to promote your own product you should be upfront about it. – John Conde Jun 23 '11 at 19:15
I didn't downvote because you do contribute here. I just wanted to encourage you to do full disclosure. That helps to avoid an air of spaminess. – John Conde Jun 23 '11 at 19:28
