I am beginner in Asp.net. I am using visual developer express edition and database sql servere express edition. I want to publish my project in a remote site . Please let me know if there is any free website hosting providers for ASP and sqlserver express
Another query is that is it possible to run the file from a folder by using internet explorer. I have one .asp file in a network folder h:> deafult.asp . Is it possible to run that file using internet explorer .

http://www.aspspider.com/ has a limited time offer right now, not sure how good it is, you will probably have to put up with banner ads being added to your site.
Nope, It has to be served via a web server like IIS

I believe that any free hosts out there will ask something from you in return. Since you will be requiring a free host that supports sql database, I believe that it is quite difficult to find one. This is simply because mssql database will require extra power
and memory on the server and this means extra $$$ for the hosts. I do understand that mssql express is provided free of charge by microsoft, but this type of database will require more server resources than mySQL database.
Since hosting service is relatively cheap nowadays, I highly recommend you to get a paid service. I would rather spend a little bit more to get a
decent service, rather than a free service that always bring down my site. Well, a typical hosting service will only cost you around $5 a MONTH with good and reasonable features. What can you buy with $5 nowdays? A cup of blended ice coffee at Starbucks
will cost you $4 -$5 and how long can you sit in that cafe? Most likely, 6 hours! If you can afford to buy a cup of coffee at starbucks, certainly it is not a problem to get a hosting service @ $5 a MONTH! :)
Hope this helps...

You could host for free on you home PC - host an ASP.NET website on home Windows XP machine.

Hi, if you are looking for free asp hosting plan, my recommendation will be same with megure, you can register a free asp hosting plan webhostforasp.net.
But if you are looking for free SQL server hosting plan, i sorry to say that it is impossible to find it. Regadring your questions, you can run default.asp file on local folder using internet explorer but you also have to make sure that you have proper setup
your "iis manager" for the default website "home directory" pointing to your application filder.
