Reason Why We Choose HostForLIFE.eu as the Best Windows ASP.NET Hosting 2016
The Windows web hosting are reviewed by following the main criterion as below besides the generic web hosting properties such as reliability, price, technical support etc.
- Windows OS: the best chooice for ASP.NET hosting is Windows 2008 certainly because only Windows 2008 integrates with IIS 7.0 which can better support ASP.NET technology like ASP.NET MVC.
- RAM: the configuration of max memory your websites can be allocated in the shared server. The configuration is not the more the better. Because in most cases, there are hundreds of accounts hosted with the same shared web server. The bigger maximum memory configuration also means the higher possibility that your resources may be stolen by other users. So the ideal configuration is between 32MB and 64MB per account.
- .NET Trust Level: it’s configured for each website by .NET infrastrcuture. If the web host doesn’t support fully trusted level, you should evaluate whether your websites can run successfully in non-full trusted mode.
- .NET Framework Versions: you can know the exact .NET Framework versions supported of the web hosts in the following table. But in fact the more verions are supported, the more flexiability you have for your websites.
- SQL Server Verion: you should pay more attention on SQL Server versions but not edition. The most SQL server in the windows/asp.net web hosting is Express edition. But it’s completely enough for websites having unique IPs less than 5000 per day. ReviewHostingASP.NET uses MS SQL Server 2008 Express Edition and now has over 500 unique visits daily.
- Control Panel: Plesk is the best reliable control panel for ASP.NET web hosting, meanwhile WebsitePanel is the best visual and easy-to-use control panel here. Both these two control panel are recommended from our perspective.
