Hunting for ASP.NET hosting
Our web site hosting is about to expire so we started to search for a new provider. Nothing particularly wrong with the current one, but we want a host that is more focused on .NET, particularly we want ASP.NET 1.1 support (including as much components as possible) and SQL Server 2000, Win2k3 being a big nice-to-have. It so happens that there's a raft of offerings (which says a lot about the growing popularity of ASP.NET) but the market options and twists are as confusing as ever (I feel pity for non-technical people trying to choose a host). We finally settled on one provider and a runner-up. As we had some problems with our credit card payment with the winner (we are in Ecuador and weekend financial transactions can be tricky) we set up an account with the runner-up KarmaaHost. But, finally our original transaction went through so we ended up with *two* hosting sites! We quickly mailed KarmaaHost to cancel the order (which was already paid and set up) and they promptly followed our instructions. So we had very little chance to experience Karmaa hosting but I can say that their customer service is superb.
