As a reseller, you should know which features would draw in more customers, and give them better value for their money. Here are just some of the features you can offer as a reseller:

1 – Scripting support. Some customers will want to play around with scripts like PHP, ASP, ColdFusion and Javascript. Scripts are needed to make more dynamic webpages, which is why many web hosts make it a point to make their servers support as many scripting languages as possible.

2 – Webpage templates. If you’re targeting first-time owners of webpages who are quite new to HTML and dynamic scripting, you may wish to offer ready-made templates that they could just fill up. Added services like web design, development and database management may be worth paying for if your client wants a one-stop web solution out of his or her reseller.

Did you still using ASP scripts for your website? Here are some of the main reasons why you should upgrade your applications to ASP.NET compatible websites.
ASP.NET encourages the programmer to develop applications using an event-driven GUI model, rather than in conventional web-scripting environments like ASP and PHP.

Lets see what are the difference ASP.NET compared to the classic ASP.
1 – ASP.NET leverages the multi-language capabilities of the .NET Common Language Runtime, allowing web pages to be coded in VB.NET, C#, J#, Delphi.NET, Chrome etc.
2 – Ability to cache the whole page or just parts of it to improve performance.
3 – Ability to use the code-behind development model to separate business logic from presentation.
4 – If an ASP.NET application leaks memory, the ASP.NET runtime unloads the AppDomain hosting the erring application and reloads the application in a new AppDomain.
5 – Session state in ASP.NET can be saved in a Microsoft SQL Server database or in a separate process running on the same machine as the web server or on a different machine. That way session values are not lost when the web server is reset or the ASP.NET worker process is recycled.
6 – Versions of ASP.NET prior to 2.0 were criticized for their lack of standards compliance. The generated HTML and JavaScript sent to the client browser would not always validate against W3C/ECMA standards. In addition, the framework’s browser detection feature sometimes incorrectly identified web browsers other than Microsoft’s own Internet Explorer as “downlevel” and returned HTML/JavaScript to these clients with some of the features removed, or sometimes crippled or broken. However, in version 2.0, all controls generate valid HTML 4.0, XHTML 1.0 (the default) or XHTML 1.1 output, depending on the site configuration. Detection of standards-compliant web browsers is more robust and support for Cascading Style Sheets is more extensive.
7 – Web Server Controls: these are controls introduced by ASP.NET for providing the UI for the web form. These controls are state managed controls and are WYSIWYG controls.

Take charge the constant improvement of ASP.NET technologies with ASP.NET hosting and the latest development tools today. It makes your web development experience richer than before!


Advantages of ASP.NET

1 – Any application can talk to a host of other applications, running on diverse technology and hardware, in turn lowering the operation costs. Consider this one case, wherein the stock management system is connected to the accounting system, resulting in ample savings.

2 – ASP.NET Bring on one platform all your internal applications, your partners as well as your customers.

3 – Microsoft Visual Studio® .NET and the .NET Framework supports varied languages, in turn helping developers to focus on work at hand instead of trying to learn a new language that can do the job.

4 – Employees can look for updated information on desktop applications, internet browsers or even mobile devices.

5 – Optimum speed of development

6 – Ability of cross platform migration

7 – High Reliability

8 – Rigorous Security

9 – Easy configurations of applications

10 – Vast and enriched Class library, features, controls

11 – ASP.NET Framework supports varied languages
These are some of the reason to choose ASP.NET hosting for your web applications. Get the hosting plan that supported up to latest ASP.NET 3.5 and MS SQL 2008 today!

Visual Studio.NET 2008 makes it very easy for us to create LINQ to SQL Entities using the Object Relational Designer. What it does is creates classes and methods that relate to the database columns and tables. This makes it possible for us to communicate with the data using LINQ (Language Integrated Query).

For this example, we will be using a SQL 2008 database with one table and three columns – id, name, and city.
Once we have our database set up, we will create a new class to represent the database table structure. It should look something like this:

using System;
using System.Data.Linq.Mapping;

public class people
[Column(IsPrimaryKey=true, IsDbGenerated=true)]
public int Id { get; set; }

public string name { get; set; }

public string city { get; set; }

public people()


It is advised to always include the table name in the class, although it is not really required if the class is named the same as the table in the SQL database.
Register the ASP.NET hosting plan with the latest SQL Server 2008 hosting from and receive reliable supports on the web hosting plan.


Some New Features on .NET Framework 3.5

1 – New .NET Framework 3.5 Setup Bootstrapper for Client Applications
The bootstrapper component can handle automatically downloading and installing either the .NET Framework Client Profile or the full .NET Framework Setup Package from the Internet if your machine doesn’t have either of them installed. The boostrapper can also automatically handle upgrading machines that have a previous version of the .NET Framework installed.

2 – WPF Performance Improvements
SP1 also adds support for better data scalability in WPF. The ListView, ListBox and TreeView controls now support “item container recycling” and “virtualization” support which allows you to easily achieve a 40% performance improvement with scrolling scenarios. These controls also now optionally support a “deferred scrolling” feature which allows you to avoid scrolling in real time and instead wait until a user releases the scroll thumb.

3 – WPF Data Improvements
# Better handling and conversion support for null values in editable controls
# Item-level validation that applies validation rules to an entire bound item
# MultiSelector support to handle multi-selection and bulk editing scenarios
# IEditableCollectionView support to interface data controls to data sources and enable editing/adding/removing items in a transactional way

4 – Visual Studio for .NET Framework 3.5
# Events tab support within the property browser
# Ability to sort properties alphabetically in the property browser
# Margin snaplines which makes form layout much quicker
# Better designer support for TabControl, Expander, and Grid

5 – “One Click” Application Deployments
# ClickOnce improvements for generating MSI + ClickOnce application packages
# ClickOnce error dialog boxes now support links to application specific support sites on the Web
# ClickOnce now has design-time support for setting up file associations
# ClickOnce application publishers can now decide to opt out of signing and hashing the ClickOnce manifests as they see appropriate for their scenarios.

Take advantage of the new .NET Framework for your application now by starting to select a ASP.NET 3.5 web hosting compatible plan and supports.
