Last 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!
