April 27, 2010 - DiscountASP.NET announces integrating the Microsoft Web Application Gallery into their hosting control panel providing its Windows 2008 hosting customers with one-click installation of many free packaged ASP.NET applications.

Microsoft introduced the Web Application Gallery within their Web Platform Installer 2.0, providing a place for users to explore and discover popular applications along with the ability to easily install applications. The applications include photo galleries to blogging platforms.

"The Microsoft Web Application Gallery is a convenient marketplace of free packaged web applications." said Takeshi Eto, VP Marketing at DiscountASP.NET. "We are proud to integrate the application gallery into our control panel featuring pre-filtered ASP.NET applications that we’ve tested and confirmed to run on our Windows hosting platform."
