November 28, 2007 - DiscountASP.NET, an award-winning ASP.NET hosting leader, announces the launch of .NET 3.5 hosting.
All DiscountASP.NET production web servers are installed side-by-side with .NET Framework 3.5 and earlier versions. Customers can choose which ASP.NET version they desire to develop against using a real-time ASP.NET Version Chooser tool available in the DiscountASP.NET hosting control panel. Customers have the freedom to switch to different versions of ASP.NET without the assistance of DiscountASP.NET staff, and do not have to experience service disruption due to server migration.
.NET Framework 3.5 expands on the previous versions with ASP.NET AJAX, Language Integrated Query (LINQ) and new tools for developers to simplify building applications using Windows Presentation Foundation, Windows Communication Foundation and Windows Workflow Foundation. In addition, the newly released Visual Studio 2008 has the capability to target .NET Framework 3.5 or previous versions.
"DiscountASP.NET is committed to being an early adopter for new .NET technology." said Takeshi Eto, VP Marketing at DiscountASP.NET. "Now, our customers can use new features of .NET Framework 3.5, such as LINQ."
DiscountASP.NET also offers .NET 3.5 on their free Windows Server 2008 hosting beta test accounts that is available to all customers. With the IIS7 beta hosting program, customers can get a jump start on experimenting with ASP.NET 3.5 on the next generation Windows 2008 server. This beta hosting program will continue until the final version of Windows Server 2008 is officially released.
