New site hosted on DiscountASP with Sitefinity .net CMS

May 16, 2010

DiscountASP hosting is recommended by Sitefinity and provide an ideal hosting environment with IIS Manager and SQL Manager access together with "Full Trust" which made building my new site a snap.

With many years CMS experience with Tridion CMS I thought that it was about time I gave something back to the CMS development community while breaking new ground with Sitefinity.

One of my main aims of this site is to show how to build standards compliant sites that meet the highest standards for accessibility.

After checking out a few .net CMS solutions with the Windows Platform Installer on my Windows 7 laptop I settled on Sitefinity to build my new website.


Sitefinity has all of the features you would expect including News, Blogs, Polls, Events, Wiki's PLUS a large amount of online training material on their site.

There are also many developers providing helpful information on their blogs. Gabe Sumner's Sitefinitywatch and Goondocks Blogs are good examples but there are many more. (Note to self: Must add a Sitefinity community page with links to Sitefinity Community sites)


DiscountASP was the best choice to host Sitefinity because they allow "full trust" control through their hosting Control Panel, IIS Manager and SQL Manager which made Sitefinity installation a painless process. They won the Code Project's  "Best Hosting Service" award providing support for .Net Framework 4.0 on Windows 2008 / IIS 7 Servers, Visual Studio support and SQL2008 databases.
