A recent trend in site design is one of the reasons that the community of developers have been eager to learn more about the opportunities afforded by Microsoft ASP.NET. As websites develop and become more interactive so developers have to keep up with the latest technology. This set of technologies in the Microsoft .NET Framework offers the ability to develop complex, highly dynamic websites faster and easier than ever before.
It is no surprise therefore that developers in building the customers bigger more dynamic sites on the ASP platform are looking at ways to help them as this is just part of the story.
Developers have to then find ASP hosting providers. Fortunately a lot of web hosts are realizing the opportunity that this growing interest in ASP offers, and are gearing up to offer ASP Hosting.
The developers are the key for ASP hosting providers. Developers are typically the key decision makers when it comes to ASP hosting. They have to be sure that their applications will work on the ASP hosting site. The key question to be asked by ASP hosting companies is what do we need to provide so we can best support developers who want to build complex websites cost-effectively. In answering this question they not only help themselves but the customers they are trying to help.
Web hosts that are keen to offer the developer an ASP hosting service can best do it based on the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 operating system using Microsoft ASP.NET. Many Web hosts offer basic web hosting packages with access database integration. Advanced packages typically offer MSSQL Database Server and ASP hosting.
ASP hosting providers need to remember that the customers who buy ASP.NET services are probably all developers looking at building interactive, dynamic websites. So the technical support has to be familiar with ASP.NET technology, installing related components, MSSQL Database connectivity issues etc., in addition to the regular Web hosting queries that come by. This is an area the ASP hosting companies can really score. Studying other Web hosts that have already got into ASP hosting is also a worthy endeavour.
