Server Intellect now has Beta 2 hosting!!!

Server Intellect, my web host and the folks that I called “the best hosting company I have ever worked with” have annouced that they now have ASP.NET Beta 2 hosting available… for free for anyone using one of their other hosting plans!

Server Intellect is proud to announce hosting support for ASP.NET 2.0 Beta 2!

  1. Actually, that’s not true. The fee is for being listed on the asp.net site. The links above are part of MSDN and hosters listed were invited to participate in offering .NET 2.0 Beta 2 hosting.

  2. Any host can offer ASP.NET 2.0 Beta 2.

    You don’t have to be ‘Invited’.

    Those 3 hosts ARE ‘featured’ hosters and did pay MS $10,000.00 per year to be ‘Featured’.

    They basically paid to be on that list.

  3. ‘Tom’,

    Are you trying to say that ONLY those hosts can offer ASP.NET 2.0 Beta 2?

    Either you are trying to blow smoke, or are sadly mistaken.

    What company do you work for again?

  4. Tom,

    Why not email someone at MS and ask what it takes to get on that list.

    The response you will get is:

    —————————–
    The hosters who appear in that list are members of the ASP.NET Hosting Advantage program at the ‘Featured’ level. Please visit http://www.microsoft.com/serviceproviders/aspnethost/default.asp to sign up for the program and email asphost@microsoft.com to inquire about the featured level.

    Thanks

    Just so you know, the ‘Featured’ level cost $10,000.00 per year last time we checked.

  5. Easy folks. I never said only those hosts listed can offer .NET 2.0 Beta 2. Since Duncan has pointed out that Server Intellect is offering it, and they’re not on the list at the link provided by Eric, that’s obvious. I only said that those hosts were invited to participate in offering hosting for Beta 2. Again, I think this is pretty obvious as I’m sure those 4 hosts are not the only “featured” hosts. As for being “featured” hosts and the fee, you may be right. However, I was under the impression that a listing on ASP.NET was part of the Hosting Advantage program. I suppose that’s what I get for thinking…
