I have the small business starter kit in VB working fine in VS2008 Pro with the xmlProvider version. It works perfect when i run it locally.
When i try to use the MS Business hosting on 1and1.com, i create a new folder, upload all of the files, rename the deafult.aspx to default.htm. It runs there also, except that the themes are not applied. It just shows text and images unformatted.
Has anybody ever been able to get any ASP.NET 2.0 web site up and running on 1and1.com?
I see a lot of posts in the ASP forums about how bad 1and1 is for hosting. I have been using them for a while and have several domain names registered on their site, but i never really had to upload a web site before. I really don't want to start looking
for another hoster for all my domain names.
Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

Why did you rename the default.aspx file? This is probably why the themes are not being applied. Also when you say you created a new folder, you mean create a new folder in your web site root? If so you might have to make that folder a virtual folder
using your control panel. 1and1.com probably has some kind of FAQ on doing that or setting it up.

I read this
http://faq.1and1.com/domains/using_and_setting_up_the_domain_/5.html on the 1and1 site and that is why i changed it. It doesn't work no matter what i use. I tried default.aspx, default.html, default.htm, index.htm and index.html.
Yes, i did make the folder a subfolder of the root and made it an application folder.
Did you ever get it to work on 1and1?

I did more testing and noticed that i can a better version of my web site showing at least some of the theme applied but not all. I can't explain why.
Here is what i did. My web site is http://www.tonygirgenti.net. Off of my root folder on 1and1, i created an application folder called tonygirgentinet. As you know, when i go to
http://www.tonygirgenti.net, the theme is not applied at all. It's just text and images. But, if i go to
http://www.tonygirgenti.net/tonygirgentinet/default.aspx, it shows more of the theme applied, but not all of it.
So, i'm getting closer, but i still need to figure out why only parts of the theme are applied.
Any help that you can provide would be gratefully appreciated.

I don't use 1and1 for hosting I use
Iis there away in your control panel to specify what page (default.aspx) is the default document or if you can see what version of ASP.NET (should be 2.0) is setup for your account?
Also that FAQ is more for Linux plans not Windows plans
May 09, 2009 12:35 PM|TGirgenti|LINK
I took this from that FAQ "The file showing this page is named 'index.html' on Linux hosting packages and
'default.htm' on Windows hosting packages." It says Windows.
Yes, i am setup for ASP 2.0.
I didn't want to, but i guess i'll have to contact 1and1 tech support. Wish me luck!

It might be better to run your site off of the root unless you plan on running more than one web site rather than putting it in a folder off the root, I tried the link and the root one throws an error

My root site is http://www.lakesideos.com. registered with and hosted by 1and1.
http://www.tonygirgenti.net is a domain hosted by 1and1 from the same account. If i put it in the root folder, i will wipe out lakesideos.com.

What if you put your root site in a folder off of your root like this:
and then point the domains to each of the folders or will 1and1 allow this? I used to run a couple of sites like this on webhost4life and it worked ok just an idea

Actually, my account is set up that way. The lakesideos.com files are in a folder called wsc105547683 off of the root. tonygirgenti.net is in a folder off of the root called tonygirgentinet. I guess the wsc one was created by 1and because i used their
web site builder to create lakesideos.com.
I will have to call 1and1 to see if i can use the root folder to hold a web site.
There are other folders there that i don't know what they are. Like aspnet_client and db. I have to guess they are folders used by 1and1.

I finally figured this out. After researching numerous faqs on 1and1 i discovered that you cannot point your domain on 1and1 to a folder. It should be pointed to the root "/." folder. Then in the root "/." folder of the account i had to put in a default.aspx
file redirecting the http://tonygirgenti.net url request to the proper folder with the following script:
That shows the web site as it should be.
tonygirgentinet is the folder that i created in my 1and1 root "/."
I hope this post helps others when they are trying to figure out how to use the 1and1 hosting service.
