    Windows web host

    I'm looking for a reliable and fairly cheap windows host. Don't need loads of disk space 100MB would do, asp.net would be nice but asp would do for now. Some form of database is essential, mysql or access (or even SQL Server).

    Not bothered if its uk or us based.

    Anyone got any recommendations?

    Cheap and Windows don't really go together, but have a look at:

    You can actually get Apache-on-Linux hosting that will support old-style asp, and if you can find a Mono host (difficult) even aspx (asp.net).

    Fwiw, I use these people www.easily.co.uk, they do linux or windows hosting, service is great, but they're not the cheapest.
    They told me I was gullible ... and I believed them.

    I use http://www.portalwebhosting.com/ for my IIS hosted domains.

    It costs me about £15 a month (They charge in USD) for about 300MB, Domain hosting, mail, subdomains etc. and a 150MB MS SQL DB. There support is also good and thats a plus point.

    Brinkster is also popular with .Net foaks. Fairly cheap also though there console is a little naff.

    Was hoping for something around £50 per year. Fasthosts is only £44 per year but that doesn't include asp.net. I'll keep looing...

    How about this? My web site is hosted by them and the user interface is great. Support is also very good.

    brinkster is the cheapest i know of

    http://www.brinkster.com/Hosting/Professional.aspx

    $8 US a month, not bad inc ASP.net

    They also occasioanlly do free accounts for students (i have one of them) that gives you an access DB and asp for nothing so keep an eye out for them, usually opens registration around september time for a short period
