I want to get a windows host that is not cheap or too expensive
I would like to use windows 2008 server and sql 2008 reporting services
on a shared host to begin with. I noticed both orcs web
and applied innovations (just started to offer windows 2008 sql 2008)
I do know that(they are a great host) discount asp.net provides these services however I sql 2008 is only available
using 64 bit processor. I do not want to pay 200.00 a month for sql........What do you think of these hosts?
Thank you for your help......

1. Orcsweb is specialized in multi-server configurations, especially load-balanced webfarms and SQL Server high-availability options. So they are great for large websites and complex solutions like
2. DiscountASP is 100% focused on Shared Microsoft Windows Hosting, but they did not provide upgrade to VPS or Dedicated solution.
You should decide which host is the best for you! Both hosts have advantages and disadvantages and both provides good hosting services.

Thank you very much for your comments.!! Unfortunately, Discount asp.net (sql 2008) is only available on 64 bit systems, (I have a 32 bit
dell system that can be configured for 64 bit if I choose) Please feel free to comment as I welcome any suggestions you might have
For right now I would like to stay with a shared solution, however I see that alot of hosting companies are providing exciting
solutions and competition and choices. I am excited about that.

You don't need a 64 bit system to use a hosted 64 bit system. ORCSWeb is pricey, but you get the value the price indicates.
