ASPHostPortal.com Expert and User Insights by ASPHostPortal.com Customers
ASPHostPortal.com is Microsoft No #1 Recommended Windows and ASP.NET Spotlight Hosting Partner in United States. Microsoft presents this award to ASPHostPortal.com for ability to support the latest Microsoft and ASP.NET technology, such as: WebMatrix, WebDeploy, Visual Studio 2012, .NET 4.5.1/ASP.NET 4.5, ASP.NET MVC 5.0/4.0, Silverlight 5 and Visual Studio Lightswitch.
ASPHostPortal gets its name from the fact that they offer hosting based on Microsoft’s ASP.NET platform. Most web hosting today is on a Linux platform, but some do offer Windows based hosting. This company happens to focus on the Windows side. They seem to do a good job of it since they won an award from Microsoft saying they are the #1 recommended Windows hosting provider in the United States. They do offer some Linux servers too, but that is not their primary focus. Their servers are located in 8 different data centers around the world including Washington, Seattle, Amsterdam, Singapore, Hong Kong, The UK, Australia, France and Germany. This means you can be sure that your site is going to be physically located in a data center close to your target audience, which is quite nice. Overall the company seems to be doing a very good job at providing high quality hosting to their customers.
Uptime & Reliability
Hosting is Very Stable
This company seems to offer good quality hosting that is very stable. They use good hardware and are located in very well-established data centers around the world. I didn’t see anyone having any significant complaints about uptime or outages, which is a very good sign. Overall, there is no reason to think that you’ll have any outages related to problems with the hosting company themselves.
Easy to Understand Features
When you look through the different hosting packages they offer you will quickly see that they are quite easy to understand. They break each package down and provide a detailed list of everything you’ll get. It is very easy to get a quick picture of what you’ll get at each level, and what is different. Most of what they offer is in line with what the rest of the industry is providing. Entry level shared hosting gets 1 gig of disk space and 10 gigs of bandwidth, which is not bad at all. That package doesn’t have any SQL databases or email though, so it is quite limited. As you move up, you’ll have access to things like SQL and additional options. They have some good dedicated cloud servers, You can choose from their budget dedicated servers or their premium versions. They offer solid state drives, a variety of options for number of CPUs and memory and much more. Overall they have a good lineup of servers available to choose from.
Limited Information About Tech SUpport
They don’t really provide much information about their technical support team. Given the fact that they have data centers around the world and serve many types of customers, it seems that they should let people know if the tech support will speak their language or where it is based. I didn’t see many complaints from actual users of the hosting, which is a good sign, but it would be nice to have more information available.
Some Good Deals but Mostly Average
The prices are mostly in line with what others in the industry will charge for similar features. If you really just need a very basic site, you can get it very inexpensively, but for the normal options the prices aren’t bad but they aren’t great. If you pay for a long time (2+ years) up front than you can get some very nice discounts, which is what many companies offer these days. For the dedicated cloud servers you’ll pay anywhere from $18 to $399 depending on the specifics of what you select.
Quality Hosting Services
When you look at the hosting solutions available from ASPHostPortal there is a lot to like. Of course, their primary service is focused on the Windows platform, so if you would prefer Linux you may want to go with another company. While they do offer Linux, it seems like a better idea to go with a company that has their focus in that area. The prices are reasonable and they are able to meet the needs of almost any type of site. Pros:
The .net core windows hosting plan exceeded my expectations. Outstanding performance and dependability were provided, and development was made simple by a smooth interaction with Microsoft technology. A seamless experience was made possible by the personnel providing customer support's responsiveness and expertise. Highly recommended for those who looking for best .net hosting services
I host my blog at ASPHostPortal.com and use it as a base to test all my asp.net mvc applications. It has been very easy to configure upload projects and work with. Technical support on site is quite fast for all kind of questions about the hosting, and it has a good KB for known issues, i'm really happy with the hosting and the service in general.
I have an ecommerce site, targetting Asian-based customer. I was recommended by colleague to try this host and I notice they do operate server in Singapore. Now, it is nearly one year with them, so far, my site is working fast and I seldom receive complaints from the visitors of my site. I paid about $10.00/month for their cloud hosting service and so far, I think the price is reasonable. With all the services and performance I receive, I have nothing to complain about.
Shared Server Plan is EXCELLENT, Dedicated Server not very good
I did order their Windows Dedicated Server but I have to say I am not really impressed with the performance of the server. I contacted them to report the performance issue and they told me that my application actually requires more RAM (and hence, they asked me to upgrade the server). Since I do not have the budget yet, I cannot afford to spend on the bigger server. Their response time is great, the initial server setup is quick, but it is just not matching my budget and requirement. Hence, for this service, I can only give a 4-star. For the shared hosting plan, it even works faster than my dedicated server. They told me that all their shared servers have at least 8 GB RAM installed and this is the main reason it works faster than my dedicated server with just 1 GB RAM. I will explore their bigger server if my boss gives me more budget. :)
What I like about this host is that they will keep updating their servers with all the latest .net features. . Otherwise, I just have to make a simple request and they will review it. The next day, they will come back with the outcome and they will install the required stuffs for me. Excellent! I am pleased so far with their support team
I have been using other hosting sites but so far asphostportal.com is the one that I love to host my asp.net site. They are always available to respond to my issues. Their prices are very moderate. For their site, it is very user-friendly. My conclusion: Great Prices great service. Great technical support! Thank you very much
Terrible host. On 20 July 2015 our DB and website were deleted due to a hack on their hosted server. They advertise state of the art data centers which would be presumed to include the most basic offsite backup to protect data. They did not do this and we lost 10 years of data. Their client service in the wake of this disaster has been unconscionable. They have failed to respond to direct questions, suggested blog posts to try to recover data ourselves, communicated poorly and never contacted clients proactively about their massive failure. They have provided no credible recovery expertise and left us losing time and money daily without regard whilst complaining about their "sleepless nights". They had one job and had they implemented the most minimal back up processes (not keeping backups on the same server for a start) requisite in their industry they would have prevented substantial client losses. Total lack of assumption of responsibility and astonishingly unprofessional service.
