Hi

X.com est la première plateforme Web communautaire dédiée aux ....

This refers to a website which, in addition to content provided by the owner, will include content posted by users (comments, forums, discussion groups).

Is "networking website" correct?

Thank you!

community-based website
Explanation:
From the description you provided, I would think that "community-based" (or another similar expression) may be a bit more accurate than "networking". I say this because the website appears to offer more than networking opportunities, such as discussion groups, opinions, articles, etc. When I see networking sites, I instantly think Facebook, Linkd-in, etc. The one you are describing would appear to be a kind of community blogsite owned by an individual who allows postings by an approved set of users.
