Setup of your hosting account is free of charge and accounts are typically up and running within 3 to 4 hours of payment being received.

Once your hosting account is set up it'll take approximately 24 hours for your new / transferred domain name to propagate and become live on the new account.

IIS 7 or IIS 8 web hosting

With Windows 2008 / IIS 7 and the .Net framework hosting on the Microsoft platform really came of age - with Windows 2012 / IIS 8 .Net support has been extended still further.

If your web site is developed primarily using html, Classic ASP or the .Net 1.1 framework or if your site requires Frontpage Extensions you should choose a Windows 2003 / IIS 6 account.

If you are developing pure .Net applications using .Net 2.0 or above you should choose a Windows 2008 / IIS 7 account - Windows 2008 / IIS 7 accounts do not support the .Net 1.1 framework or Frontpage Extensions, or windows 2012 IIS 8.

Application and User Isolation

For the best possible reliability each site runs as a separate IIS application. With IIS isolation each application has it's own IIS process and memory allocation and problems in the code of one customers site won't affect other sites.

Also, to ensure account security all DotNetted accounts run under a unique anonymous user tied to their application and the account filespace is explicitly protected by NTFS security so only the account holder has access to their files.

Asp.Net 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0

Asp.Net allows you to deliver real world web applications in combining enhanced developer productivity with performance, reliability, and ease of deployment.

Asp.Net server controls allow you to use an HTML like style of programming that lets you build great pages with far less code. Displaying data, validating user input and uploading files are all easy.

Asp.Net now supports over 25 languages, best of all, Asp.Net pages work in all browsers.

ASP 3.0 Classic

ASP was developed at Microsoft for use with their IIS web server package and is a powerful tool for connecting to databases, dynamically formatting pages, executing complex logic statements and much more.

All documents that have the .asp extension will be processed as an ASP document and your hosting account includes full support for ASP version 3.0

We also have a number of asp components installed to allow you to easily send e-mail from your .asp pages, upload files, encrypt data and manipulate graphics on the fly.

Macromedia DreamWeaver

Macromedia's Dreamweaver has for many years been a premier web design and development software and the choice of an estimated 80+% of web design professionals.

Your hosting account fully supports Dreamweaver using both the ASP classic and Asp.Net server behaviours, and a sizeable percentage of our clients are Dreamweaver users.

DotNetted's own web site was built using Dreamweaver 8.

Microsoft Visual Studio .Net

Your hosting account supports Visual Studio .Net, Microsoft's professional application development suite.

Visual Studio .Net provides developers with the tools to build the next generation of Internet applications with XML Web services, database applications and rapid application development for the .Net enabled server.

Allied with the .Net Framework Visual Studio .Net provides a powerful and sophisticated tool for developing, debugging and deploying secure applications for the web that are robust and easy to use.

FrontPage Compatible

Microsoft Frontpage is one of the leading web site design and development tools and is supported by our Windows 2003 / IIS 6 based hosting accounts.

Frontpage Extensions allow you to publish your webs to your hosting account directly from your Frontpage software.

When ordering your hosting account if you wish to use the Frontpage extensions to publish your account be sure to order a Windows 2003 / IIS 6 based account as Frontpage is not supported on Windows 2008 / IIS 7 servers.

Bandwidth / Data Transfer

Each time a visitor views one of your pages the files that make up the page are transferred from our servers to the visitors machine for display in their browser.

DotNetted hosting accounts include as standard 10 GB of data transfer per month, with a typical web page size of around 50 KB this allows your site to serve approximately 200,000 page views per month.

Should you ever reach the limit of your allotment extra bandwidth can be added as required.

Web Space

Web space is the physical space on our servers dedicated for use by your account, by default this is 1000 MB of space.

A typical web page comes in at around 50 KB which means you can store approximately 20,000 individual pages in your 1000 MB allotment.

Should you ever reach the limit of your allotment extra web space can be added as required.

pop3 / imap mailboxes

Your hosting account includes 100 mailboxes, 250 MB of e-mail storage space plus unlimited e-mail forwarding aliases.

Mail can be retrieved using any pop3 standards compliant e-mail client (Outlook, Outlook Express, Pegasus mail etc.). Mailboxes also support imap which can be useful when you're on the move with mobile devices / phones.

You also have access to your mailboxes via our webMail service so you can access your mail from anywhere that you can use a web browser.

Advanced WebMail Service

Your hosting account offers access to your e-mail via both a regular pop3 / imap client and our webmail service.

The webmail service includes advanced features such as an address book and spell checking.

If you're currently having to use Hotmail or a similar service to pick up your mail when you're on the move you can now have the same benefits but with your own e-mail accounts and domain.

E-Mail Virus Checking

The last couple of years have seen a massive increase in the number of viruses / worms competing to infect your PC(s).

Many of these viruses / worms now use e-mail as their main means of distribution and scanning your e-mail has become essential if you are to avoid infection.

All incoming e-mail destined for our customers mailboxes is scanned by Trend Micro's Server Protect and any mail found to be infected is cleaned or deleted as required. Trend Micro are one of the most respected names in the world for virus scanning and PC security.

Configurable Spam Filtering

Spam is the bane of every Internet users life, it is estimated that currently at least 70% of all mail transferred across the Internet is spam.

Our mail software includes user configurable spam filtering - the mail server checks each piece of incoming mail using a number of tests and against publicly available spammer lists and assigns each piece of mail a score.

You can then configure your mail account at domain or individual mailbox level to perform actions on incoming mail dependant on the individual score of each mail - such as moving suspect mail to a spam folder or deleting outright.

Advanced Visitor Statistics

All hosting accounts include full, graphical statistics provided by our SmarterStats software.

SmarterStats offers in depth reporting of everything that you could possibly need to know about the visitors to your site and what they did and looked at once on your site.

Reports cover : number of visitors, how referred, pages viewed, bandwidth, files downloaded, search engines, search phrases / keywords, visitor location and much, much more.

You can also create your own custom reports.

Access Databases

DotNetted hosting accounts include the ability to upload and connect to Microsoft Access databases within your web site.

A database backend to your site allows you to add dynamic features such as forums, guest books, shopping carts and much more transforming your site from a static 'brochure' site to a dynamic live site.

Much maligned, Access is actually a very capable database within a hosting environment and is capable of serving many thousands of queries daily. If your site does outgrow Access we offer SQL Server as an optional extra.
