You're new to Silverlight App development. After struggling for a long time, the time to show it to the world has finally come. But, you don't have any web hosting account. So, what will you do?
Don't worry about it (and don't commit suicide just because of it). I have a solution. You can use your dropbox account to host it. Curious how to do that? Just follow these following steps!
1. Make sure you have Dropbox Account
If you don't have any dropbox account, register and follow installation steps here: http://www.dropbox.com/. If you already have one, go to the next step.
2. Build your Silverlight App
For example, if you have HelloSilverlight project, build it. After the project built, you'll get your .xap file and some generated files (such as HelloSilverlightTestPage.html, Silverlight.js, etc.) in your
3. Put Your XAP and additional files in Dropbox Public folder
See the picture above? Now put those files to your Dropbox Public folder. To test if your silverlight app successfully hosted, copy public link of HelloSilverlightTestPage.html and paste it into your web browser's address bar.
And finally you'll be able to see your Silverlight app online. The view is just like picture below:
4. Embed Silverlight App on Blog Post / Web Page
For final touch, if you need to embed inside a blog post or web page (see silverlight app above? that's what I mean), just copy the following HTML iframe tag:
<iframe height="300" src="http://dl.dropbox.com/u/8050878/silverlight-app/hellosilverlight/HelloSilverlightTestPage.html" width="400">
