Document Types vs. Custom Tables
I'm planning to build a big news site (the old one contain 65,000 +) news.

after I read this article Kentico Document Types vs. Custom Tables

I want to ensure If I choose Kentico Content Type (for example Blog) to store all of these content will affect on my site performance ? , So I have to go to Custom tables ?,
Hence I'll loose a lot of blog features like comments and friendly URLs and more..

RE:Document Types vs. Custom Tables

Kentico can handle hundredrs of thousands blog posts. The performance can be worse than with custom tables but if you need the blog functionality, I would recommend you to use the document types and improve the performance with the caching options. However, -you can test both of scenarios with your data on the particular server.
