Finding a Cheap Asp.Net Host for Web Hosting

Well I’ve been looking at various Asp.Net hosting plans that past few weeks. I never realized just how many cheap asp.net web hosting solutions there where out on the net. Needless to say I have been spending a lot of times on these various Asp.Net Hosting company’s web sites and I’m now more confused than when I started. I’m not going to mention any direct names as I’m sure most of these hosting companies offer good solutions.

The problem I have is its hard to decide. The hosting company I am currently on is very good, but I want to launch a new site for my wife so I want something that gives decent performance for DotNetNuke applications and I would also like to install a copy of community server in another site. So I definitely need a MSSQL server enabled account with the ability to host multiple domains. This is not always easy to find at an affordable price. I need to keep the cost cheap since these are pretty much hobby type sites and I only try to earn enough to pay the hosting fees with the advertising on the sites. I don’t think my wife is going to let me put any advertising on her site so I need something that won’t break the bank.

I’ve also found several cheap asp.net dedicated hosting plans that I may consider, but I will need to generate a lot more traffic before this is feasible. There are a lot of companies which offer various asp.net hosting web solutions using a dedicated hosting or virtual private server, but most of these only allow one MSSQL database per account. This does not really work if I want multiple applications running in the same asp.net hosting account. So I guess I’m stuck with a shared hosting solution until I can build up enough traffic to pay for my own dedicated host that offers multiple MSSQL databases. The problem here is most are not a cheap hosting solution and I really don’t want to get into paying a lot of money ever month for hosting these hobby sites. Well the search continues.
