As a ASP.NET developer, I like their services because of the features they offer and their control panel. They support a ton of features such Web Services, a lot of ASP.NET components, they support both ASP.NET 2.0 and ASP.NET 1.1 and of course both MS SQL 2005 and MS SQL 2000.
As mentioned, their control panel is very good. Within their control panel, there is an IIS Manager where you can manage IIS settings, Permissions Manager where I can give different permissions to different folders of my site, etc. The fact that they built their own control panel showed me that they knew web development which also demonstrated to me, before I had an account with them, that they would be able to answer many of my ASP.NET related questions. I was right, they really do know how to answer my ASP.NET questions. And yes...their support is very responsive.
Another reason I liked them is the speed at which they launched new features. They are not just sitting back and twidling their thumbs, they consistenly launch ASP.NET related new features, which is great for me. For example, right now, I am trying to figure out how to incorporate WCF (Windows communication foundation), which is .NET 3.0 feature, into an web application that I am building and Discountasp.net now supports .NET Framework 3.0.
