Windows 2012 Hosting Arrives in U.S. Data Center

On September 20, 2012, in Announcements, by Takeshi Eto

Takeshi Etowindows 2012 hostingLast week we announced the launch of shared TFS 2012 hosting and I mentioned that we were working on rolling out a bunch of other stuff.

Well, today we are happy to announce that the highly anticipated Windows 2012 hosting is now available in our U.S. data center.

Our Windows 2012 platform is a playground for developers and supports the latest in the Microsoft Web Stack, including IIS 8, ASP.NET 4.5, Visual Studio 2012, Visual Studio Express 2012, WebMatrix 2, MVC 4, Entity Framework 5, ASP.NET Web API, WebSockets, node.js, and Dynamic IP restriction. We even increased the memory allocation for our Windows 2012 hosting platform to 300mb. We are ready for your modern web applications!

We’ve also heard from many existing customers who are interested in ASP.NET 4.5. At this time, ASP.NET 4.5 is only available on the Windows 2012 platform. If you are an existing web hosting customer at DiscountASP.NET and want to migrate to the latest Windows 2012 environment, we’ve made that easier for you. In your Control Panel Account Information section, we list the Server Type and you will notice an UPGRADE link there. This link will trigger an automated migration for your site.

And rest assured that we are working hard to bring Windows 2012 hosting to our European data center. Stay tuned, good things are on the way!

    Sweet Georgia Brown! Thank guys!

    And thanks for the bump in memory allocation. Our site is screaming busy and any additional memory is greatly appreciated.
    Cheers!

    Is there any down time during the migration? I would imagine so but I can’t find any info about this on your site.

  3. Jeff Moro says:

    How big is the upgrade? Do we need to switch or is it something that we can do without?

    • Takeshi Eto says:

      If you are happy with your current site on the previous windows platform, you don’t need to switch. However, if you are looking to use new features in .NET 4.5 then you will need to migrate.

    Thanks for your emAiL telling me we must upgrade our server.
    HOW ?
    WHO DO WE CONTACT THEM
    HOW DO WE CONTACT YOU?
    THIS WAS THE URL FROM THE email so do me… to 12

  8. Do we have to do anything on our end, if we do not want to change the website structure we have?

  9. mjp says:

    Regarding the email we’re sending out now, any move away from Windows 2003/IIS 6 is voluntary for most of you. But our goal is to eventually move everyone away from Windows 2003, because it has become an inherently insecure platform.

  10. STitus says:

    will the server address affect smartphone access to email account associated with my site that I am migrating? with my SiteLock service on that account? I don’t wish to assume either way.

  11. Ricardo says:

    Hi. We’ve got some code Asp.net 1.1 in our site, can we migrate to this new platform? it will run smoothly like now in the IIS 6 win2003?

  12. thomas says:

    1. Will this affecting our DNS setting?
    2. Or after migration, should I reset/re-config DNS setting?

    • Takeshi Eto says:

      If you are using our DNS then you will not need to do anything on your end. If you are using a third party DNS, then you’ll be receiving instructions on what to do.

    My Friend is running an old website on one of the Servers from DASP. That is classical ASP … Shall that work?
