using asp.net with my dedicated server. RRS feed

  • User-315016148 posted

     I have a dedicated server for my websites and I use expression web 3 to build my websites and I would like to use asp.net to build some applications. What would I need to do with the server to make sure the asp.net controls will work. Does it have to be a windows server? Since asp.net is a free technology is there a download for my server?

     

    I am a noob to asp.net so thanks in advance for the help.

     So if my host for my dedicated server doesn't provide the asp server extensions is it best for me to find a host that does or is there another solution?

    Personally I have yet to see a hosting provider not allow ASP.NET on their servers dedicated or shared unless thes servers were not Windows or they were being used for something other than web hosting only.

    There are lots of ASP.NET hosting providers out there to choose from so if your provider does not allow them take your business elsewhere.

    Yes

    Since asp.net is a free technology is there a download for my server?

    You should download the .NET Framework v2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 and apply all service packs for each.
