    ASP.Net Site with MSSQL 2005

    Hi...

    I am looking for a company to host a relatively simple data driven ASP.Net 3.5 website and a MS SQL 2005 database. There will be minimal traffic on the website as it is for a small business and also minimal media will need to be hosted. Features like Ajax should of course also be enabled.

    Data security is of importance although as the developer of the site, I would like the flexibility of being able to configure the database (run scripts) through management studio remotely.

    Email features will also eventually be required.

    The company should ideally be based in the UK and decent support id (and when) the need arises.

    Any recommendations? What sort of price range should I be looking at?

    Most companies seem to support MySQL- but this is not flexible.

    Thanks

    I believe, shared hosting will be perfect for your requirements. What are your disk space/bandwidth requirements? Also, can you let us know your budget?

    In addition, to your disk space/bw requirements and budget, do you care what type of Windows server you are on (i.e. Windows 2003/IIS 6.0 or Windows 2008/IIS 7.0)?

    Hi

    your requirements are quite do-able. for low bandwidth you should be looking at under 10 month for quality hosting including MS SQL 2005/2008 within the UK.

    Also, when speaking to hosts its good to check their servers & staff are in the UK if this is what you want.

    You might want to check out Discountasp.net. I know they offer a UK data center. I have used them for quite a number of years and I have always been satisfied with their services.

    I am not located in the UK, but for asp.net hosting with MS SQL, you can find it from $10 to $20 per month USD.

    We tend not to recommend shared hosting for business accounts. With your needs you could get your own Windows VPS and install either MSSQL Express or web edition. You will have more control over your site's security and the necessary isolation from other sites actions.

    Vps hosting has a lot of advantages over a shared one. I do recommend it as well. You'll find a lot good offers too if you look around. =)
