Q&A

  1. I want to use a web-hosting company to host my ASP.NET website. How do I determine whether a particular web-hosting company can host my ASP.NET application?

  1. The easiest way to ascertain whether a given web-hosting company can host your site is to simply ask. Be sure to tell the company that you are creating an ASP.NET 2.0 website using Visual Web Developer. For your ASP.NET site to be able to run on the company's servers, the web-hosting company will need to be running Microsoft's web server, IIS, along with the .NET Framework version 2.0. If these conditions are met, your site should run just fine.

  1. I have created a website on my local file system with the website located at folder X. I'd like to move the website to folder Y. Is this possible?

  1. Sure. To move the site, simply close Visual Web Developer and then move the website's folder from its current location to wherever else you'd like it to reside. After you have moved the files, reopen Visual Web Developer, go to the File menu, and choose the Open Web Site option. Browse to the new folder location and click Open. That's all there is to it!

  1. What are some online resources for ASP.NET information?

  1. There are a plethora of ASP.NET resources available free online. Your first destination should be the official ASP.NET website, http://www.asp.net. This site has links to virtually every ASP.NET resource site on the Net, along with a very active online forum site (http://forums.asp.net/) that has received more than 1,000,000 posts from hundreds of thousands of users.

    Many of the larger ASP.NET resource sites have been around for many years, having started when there was no ASP.NET, only ASP. I run a popular online resource, 4GuysFromRolla.com, which has a messageboard, FAQs, and thousands of ASP/ASP.NET-related articles. Some other large and prominent ASP.NET sites include 15Seconds.com, ASPAlliance.com, and ASP101.com. There's also Microsoft's ASP.NET Developer Center, available at http://msdn.microsoft.com/asp.net/.
