I have been using DiscountASP.NET to support my web sites for many years. I started using them based on recommendations from several Microsoft MVPs and have been very satisfied with both their support and performance over the years.
The folks at DiscountASP.NET have now come up with a very exciting Cloud solution. They are calling this new cloud solution Everleap. They have two products,; Cloud Websites and Multi-Domain Cloud. I have been working with the Multi-Domain solution.
Disclosure of Material Connection: Everleap has provided me a complimentary Multi-Domain account because of my MVP status. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.
Their technology is built on Microsoft’s latest Cloud O/S and utilizes Windows Azure Pack – the same technology that runs Microsoft Windows Azure. Everleap Cloud Websites give you the reliability and scalability of the cloud at predictable, down-to-earth prices. Cloud hosting services include SQL and MySQL databases, Reporting Services, SSL support, email, and DNS service.
When a traditional server is loaded with customers on unlimited multi-domain plans, something’s got to give. Typically the first thing to go out the window is reliability and quality of service, the very things you want for your websites! Everleap’s Multi-Domain Cloud puts an end to the disappointments that come along with old fashioned multi-domain hosting. I moved a website based on DotNetNuke to my Multi-Domain Cloud. DNN is notorious for its resource consumption. The performance on the Multi-Domain Cloud service was noticeably better after the move.
I also moved the MyVBProf.com site to the Multi-Domain Cloud service. Because Everleap is using the Azure Pack, publishing the site using Visual Studio was really easy.
The control panel is very intuitive and easy to use. Managing sites, databases, and services is very straight forward. I have had a need to use their support and, like DiscountASP.NET, Everleap’s support is awesome.
There is a growing number of Cloud solutions coming to the market. I am comfortable suggesting that you include Everleap in your search for a good solution.
