June 12, 2007 - DiscountASP.NET today announces receiving the Readers' Choice Award for Best Hosting from Visual Studio Magazine. The 2007 winners, which appear in the June issue, are chosen by Visual Studio Magazine's readers and honor excellent software and services in 22 development categories.
Patrick Meader, Visual Studio Magazine editor in chief, said, "The Readers Choice Awards are special because it is an accolade from the person most qualified to say whether a product is great: the person who uses it. These aren't managers voting, but developers-developers who use these tools on a daily basis to simplify their lives and create better software at a lower price. As such, there is no better recommendation for the value of a given company's product. I commend all the Readers Choice Award winners. Visual Studio Magazine readers have put your product on top."
Visual Studio Magazine presented awards in three categories. The Readers Choice Awards are given to products that received the most readers' votes. The Readers Choice Merit Awards are given to products receiving a high number of votes that also show real value to Visual Studio Magazine readers. The Editors Choice Award is given to products that shows special merit or innovation, but do not fit comfortably into the standard categories .
"Our ASP.NET hosting services are designed to serve the Visual Studio developer, so winning this award for Best Web Hosting is truly an honor," added Takeshi Eto, DiscountASP.NET VP Marketing, "We want to let the Visual Studio developer community know that our team is committed to continued innovation in the ASP.NET hosting space and we are looking forward to the next-generation Visual Studio 2008 release."
DiscountASP.NET also received the Visual Studio Readers' Choice Award for Best Hosting in 2005 and the Best Hosting Merit Award in 2006.
