I am checking into where to host my Asp.Net web.
I checked with a web host that currently has one of my Front Page Websites Facts & Questions page and it states:
" On our Windows hosting plan, we do support ASP.NET. We have both 1.1.4322.0 and 2.0.50727.0 versions on the server. You are able to select between the 2 for each of your domain(s) in Plesk under ASP.NET, Change Version. "
I don't know if this is what I need. I just built a web with Visual Studio .NET 2008

you can always ask your hosting support team if they have the .NET 3.5 (SP1) framework installed on their servers or not. If not you're not able to use the features that came with 3.5 like linq or the listview control to name a few.

Actually on the IIS server you will have to choose .NET Framework 1 and 2. Version 3. is extension on version 2, so I agree that you should check if the hosting company provide 3.

Exactly. And if they do not support .NET 3.5 then you can ask them to get it installed (not sure if plesk supports it though). If they are reluctant to install it on the server, you should consider moving to a host that supports latest .NET technologies

Mosts .net hosts are supporting .NET Framework 3.5, so it shouldn't be a problem finding a host. I am assuming you are seeking a shared hosting solution. For my shared asp.net hosting needs, I use Discountasp.net. For dedicated asp.net hosting, I recommend

Yes, DiscountASP are great choice for Shared Windows Hosting, in which they are specialized.

Thanks all for the responses.
Yes, I'm using shared hosting.
The site I am currently using is LunarPages. I just got back an email from them saying there is an extra charge for ASP activation since its not provided as a standard feature.
I may look at some of these other suggestions and compare prices.
