    hi ..im looking for some host,which is highly updated wit dot net technologies[frmwrk 3.5,IIS 7,SilverLight etc].

    i like discountasp.net.bt as starter site,its very expensive and less value for money.

    Now decided to go with ultimahosts.net.But sound reviews/feedback not found.Dont know how long they are in the business.Anybody hosted wit them

    As a starter website,my initial reqs are very minimal.a 5-10 Gb BW is okei.Requires 200-250 web space,Must have support for all new Microsoft Technolgies like FR-3,FR-3.5,SL,IIS 7.0.SQL Server is also reqd,100 Mb is okei

    I would strongly recommend Discountasp. I have been with them for years now and I think the do offer the best value in Microsoft hosting for the money you pay. I have used ASP.NET hosts that offer hosting for $5/mo or less and they are pretty lousy.

    Just make sure you work out the total cost of your hosting with MSSQL 2005 as some hosts don't include this in the price and then sting you for another $130. Also ask if they can do unlimited databases instead of just 1. Why not?

    ha i know..others will charge extra for MS-SQL..& so the reliability.
    And getting unlimited database seems to be bad?bcz this will create more load on the db server.

    You just need to work out your needs in terms of disk space/bandwidth/databases/etc... You can then go ahead and search the host that 'best' fits your needs..

    Bad Experience

    I paid for a bad support experience with Ultima Hosts - not so good they do not like that any issues be raised; have attitude issues; I'd say high headed approach towards clients.

    As a developer its crucial to have a good understanding of the hosting company and good liasion. I believe in good support with a smile no matter what kind of issue the client may ask - everything can be resolved anyway at the end.

    And why I need to say which domains???

    Are you still using our service by chance? I think I've worked out what this is all about.

    IIS7 is still in beta, you won't be able to find any hosts providing this in a non-testing environment.

    You're not going to find any providers that offer shared IIS 7 in a production environment. If you do, run for the hills, as it's not out yet. I know SWSoft (or Parallels as they're gonna be called soon) released a beta version of Plesk for Windows 2008. I know we're going to be offering that beta soon, and I imagine some hosts may already be offering it internally to their own customer's.

    If you drop the IIS 7, almost all Windows hosts will do what you want. If they don't have .Net 3.5 on their servers yet, putting it there is a non-issue.
