  • because Silverlight is a client/browser technology you can host the .XAP files anywhere,IIS, Apache.

    The only gotcha is the server must set the mime type correctly and if you want to use WCF web serverices they must be hosted on a .NET server.

    Mime type

     .xap application/x-silverlight-app

    this tells the browser how to treat the .xap file

  • hi xamldesigner,

    obviously, you need to look for a host that supports Silverlight 4 + WCF RIA Service. Specifically, you need to look for a host that only specialise in Windows ASP.NET Hosting. One that I can recommend is asphostcentral.com. Obviously, Silverlight is not something new now and you can have it running without any much hassles.
