Hello,

I have some doubts on ASP.Net application with MS SQL Server 2008 DB hosting so I decided to ask here.

I’m a trainee ASP.Net applications developer. I have been a windows forms developer for at least 3 years and now trying to develope ASP.Net applications.

I’m trying to upgrade some of these windows forms applications to ASP.Net using VS 2010. (Learning ASP.Net at the same time). However, I don’t have the server to host my application, which has a MS SQL Server backend Database so people can access my application. Please advise if that would be possible for me to develop the ASP.Net application and host under any hosting subscriptions. 2 of such that provide ASP.Net hosting services are www.smarterasp.net and discountasp.net. but not sure if I can be able to easily deploy my application with teh MS SQL Server DB so my users can access the application online.

I also would want to buy the hosting service so I can create websites and host them on this hosting service that I get.

Please advise if the above is possible. And if you can please advise of such service provider which would cost me a total of less than $10/month for ASP.Net.

Also please clear my doubts on the following:
• Can I be able to deploy the already ASP.Net developed application together with its MS SQL Server DB easily as I have no prior or complete understanding in ASP.net under my subscription? (can I easily restore the DB to any of the DB server that I’m allocated under my subscriptions)
• Can I have access to the MS SQL Server Database for those applications that I develop which has a MS SQL Server database backend under my subscriptions if I have to make any further changes on the DB Objects?
• Is there a utility like a CMS that I can use to create Websites for clients online and host them under my subscription? Also can I be able to create emails services for these clients?


I have sent similar queries to some hosting service providers so while waiting, I have decided to ask this here for your expert advise.

Thanking you in advance.

Hi ekipongi,

- Can I be able to deploy the already ASP.Net developed application together with its MS SQL Server DB easily as I have no prior or complete understanding in ASP.net under my subscription? (can I easily restore the DB to any of the DB server that I’m allocated under my subscriptions)
A> Yes, you dont need to worry. You just need to make sure that your application is working fine on your localhost. Then, you can easily deploy your files via FTP to your hosting provider root folder. Just follow your hosting provider instruction.

I host with asphostportal.com and to upload my files, I use FTP tools like Filezilla. For DB restoration, you can ask them to restore it or use CP.

- Can I have access to the MS SQL Server Database for those applications that I develop which has a MS SQL Server database backend under my subscriptions if I have to make any further changes on the DB Objects?
A> Basically hosting provider allow you to connect remotely to manage your database.

- Is there a utility like a CMS that I can use to create Websites for clients online and host them under my subscription? Also can I be able to create emails services for these clients?
A> I believe all hosting providers provide CMS application and email services.
