Open source tools may be invading the field of web designing at an alarming rate, but that does not mean major players like Microsoft have been put out of business yet. Truly, ASP. Net developed by Microsoft still remains one of the most popular web hosting platforms across the globe. So, if you are planning to launch your new website using ASP .Net as the platform, it is hardly a surprise.
However, in order to develop and launch a website using ASP .Net as the platform, you do need to have the website hosted on a server running Microsoft Windows operating system. And for that you need to locate a reputable provider of Windows hosting services. Problem is - there are so many web hosting services of that sort out there that you are likely to be confused when trying to choose the best one among those. The following tips should help you determine whether the hosting service provider is any good:
1.Find out whether the Windows hosting service provider offers support for the database technologies that you can use with ASP. Net. These include Microsoft Jet OLEDB, MySQL ODBC drivers, Microsoft Excel, Paradox, and Visual FoxPro. The more technologies the providers supports, the better it will be for you in the long run.
2.ASP requires a lot of files to be installed on the server hosting the website. So, make sure there is adequate space for all those files, along with the multimedia and text files you will be using on your website. 1-2 GB of space is alright to begin with, but there should be scope for allocation of extra space when you need it. Also, be sure to find out how much bandwidth will be allocated to your website. 5-6 GB will get you by initially, but 10-12 GB is the sweet spot for a moderately sized website designed using ASP .Net.
3.Make sure that there is facility for adequate technical support 24/7, in case something goes wrong with the website. The support staff need to be knowledgeable about ASP and associated technologies, so that they can fix problems with your website, as and when required.
Finding a Windows hosting service provider is not a difficult task, since merely running a search on Google will probably turn up hundreds of names. However, before you pay any money to one of those providers, make sure they are worthy of the getting your business. Verify the pointers given above before you do anything else, and you should do just fine.
