June 17, 2008 - DiscountASP.NET, a leading innovator in Windows hosting, announces launching support for additional Microsoft DBManager and AdminPack IIS Manager UI extensions in public beta for their Windows 2008 hosting customers.
Along with the launch of Windows 2008 and Internet Information Services 7.0 (IIS7), Microsoft introduced IIS Manager, a new IIS tool which provides users with a familiar user interface to remotely manage IIS7 server configurations. Using IIS Manager, DiscountASP.NET customers can view settings and manipulate their web.config files for features that have been delegated to them.
"A key feature with IIS7 webhosting is the ability to delegate website configurations to our customers." said Takeshi Eto, VP Marketing at DiscountASP.NET. "One of our guiding principles is to give our customers maximum control over their hosting environment, so we chose to implement IIS feature delegation on our Windows 2008 shared hosting platform."
DiscountASP.NET introduces the following Microsoft IIS Manager UI extensions:
- ASP.NET Authorization Rules UI: This tool allows customers to configure ASP.NET authorization settings.
- ASP.NET Error Page UI: This tool allows customers to configure ASP.NET custom error settings.
- Request Filtering UI: This tool allows customers to configure IIS request filtering module settings.
- DBManager: This tool allows customers to perform basic database administration and queries.
"Microsoft has been releasing new IIS Manager UI extensions and we wanted to be among the first hosts to make them available in a live environment and give our customers the opportunity to contribute important feedback to help improve these new tools." added Takeshi Eto. "Our customers can enable access to all or a subset of the additional IIS Manager UI extensions through their hosting control panel."
