I was curious if it is ok legally to use this website in a real 'production' environment.
Can someone please throw some light on this?

You should review the license. That starter kit requires you to accept the Microsoft Permissive License when you download it.

Like Mike said, you should review the welcome.htm file that came with it,
and the user agreement when downloading.
But you can modify the code anyway you like.
You may not sell it as your own work though.
I have made many, many changes to it.
You can view my site at www.detelli.com
Have fun, and make it your own.

Your site looks very impressive. I'm just starting out with ASP.NET but I hope to have a finished product not unlike yours. Hopefully I'll be able to pick your brains over the next few weeks (Its not a property site and its UK based, so I'm not the competition).
I'm glad to see this template being used commercially.
Is your site currently very stable? Is Visual Studio the best tool to be using?
All the best,

Thank you for your compliment.
I have worked very hard on my site, and have added many upgrades.
I haven't had any major problems, and my site is stable so far.
Although I usually get only around 150 new users a day.
Not sure how it will handle hundreds of request at the same time.
But I'm sure it will be fine.
I would say that Visual Studio is probably the best tool,.
However, I use the free version, Visual Web Developer.
And that's great.
The biggest piece of advice I could give you is, be unique, and always make dated backups.
I can't tell you how many times the backups have saved me tons of work.
Good Luck & Have Fun.
