With so many types of hosting plans out there, it is important for you to know which one is the one most suited for your website. When you are planning to have a website, there are many platforms to choose from and ASP.NET is one of them. Therefore, lets a take a look at ASP .NET to know its difference.
ASP.NET is a complete new programming interface compared to ASP. Users who are familiar with Visual Basics and other applications developed by Microsoft will be able to use it well and use the development tools to use for their internet purposes. Improvements have been made and ASP.NET is the next wave in hosting with ASP.NET 2.0 and ASP.NET 3.5 both supported by all of the major hosting providers that support the .Net platform.
Developers will have no problems using ASP.NET because those who have been using client-server will be able to use their skills with ease while others who are using C ++, Java or Visual basics can also use their existing components to synchronize with ASP.NET web pages and web forms. This great has been widely accepted by developers and has pushed for the release of ASP.NET 3.5 hosting.
The features in ASP.NET have improved the development time for developers because it has been designed to be very easy to use. Users who use Microsoft Access can use it with ease, and even those who use 'hard core' programming can use the tools and database integration easily.
However, the great functionality of the ASP.NET does come with a price. This is because users will need to have extra license and this will add to their monthly expenses. No concerns though because it will only be an increase of a few dollars. With that kind of money spent, you will have a lot of extra time to develop. People say time is money and it is often very true in this case.
One thing to bear in mind about ASP.NET is that it is not suitable for beginners or those who do not have Microsoft programming experience. Other open-sourced hosting will be a better solution. There are hosting like PHP and CGI which will do a perfect job.
