I suppose many people here have such experience and can advice me something.

If you need to host more than one site, then it will be much better to look for Reseller ASP.NET Hosting than
Shared ASP.NET Hosting.

I will add several points to your hosting requirements (if I am permitted ). The requirements that I would love to add are:
- Availability of Backup and Restoration
With ASPHostDirectory, you can get ALL the features you mentioned before + the three above extra requirements that I mentioned here. Why do you need these 3 extra features?
With higher flexibility, you can easily upgrade your hosting plan to a higher package without any much "fuss". I have been with them for quite some time and initially, I just registered for their cheapest plan. I want to trial and test for their service before
committing myself further. I then found that their service is excellent and decided to move to a reseller plan. They did not charge me for an upgrade either and upgrading my plan is very easy without affecting my existing settings.
Most importantly, they are so flexible in which I can only buy the service that I need right now. For example: at first I just had 1 domain (1 client) to be hosted and as my business is growing and I get more customers, I can just simply purchase the addon,
allowing me to top up my domain (client) easily. With other hosts, I will have to register for their Reseller Plan (which usually comes with plenty of sites and costs more), just to understand that I am needing only one website at that time. Isn't this a waste
of my hard-earned dollars?
2. High Performance
I need my sites to be hosted on the best server, with at least Dual Core processor with more than 2 GB RAM. Furthermore, I want to make sure that there are not plenty of clients inside a box. It would be useless if a server has 4GB RAM but it takes, let's say,
500 customers in a box! This is one of the most important factor in my consideration and with ASPHostDirectory, my sites perform good and within my acceptable boundary!
3. Availability of Backup and Restoration
I want to be able to backup and restore my DB directly without needing to contact Support everytime. That is why this feature is very important. I understand by doing this work myself, I can cut my "wait-time" a lot. Their control panel provides this great
feature and everything seems to be very easy and straight forward.
The other features that you mentioned, such as IIS7, ASP.NET3.5 SP1, SQL 2008, unlimited email accounts, unlimited subdomains etc are pretty standard features and you can find them on most of the hosts nowadays. I wish you good luck in selecting your next host!

The choices between
asp.net hosting or
reseller asp.net hosting plan from SeekDotNet.com might meet your requirements. Start a live chat session with the live chat support team to get more inquiries on your requirements.

I think it's hard to find hosting with your requirement. For my opinion i suggest you to take reseller plan, because you can hosting more than one site..for reseller plan i suggest you with
WebHostForASP.NET because they offer special promo now. For the code you can check with their
blog. Hopefully you can get the best for what you need.

Hi MsFit. I also recommend a reseller package for your situation. You could easily reserve hosting for yourself, and then profit off selling whatever you do no need at that time. In time, you could even be getting your hosting basically free by selling your

Deciding a hosting company is always a difficult task. There are millions of hosts in this world and even if you have $10.00 monthly budget, there are still plenty of them to choose from.
It is always wise to ask a few questions directly to the hosting companies that you are interested in, just to check whether they have the features you requested, the response time, and whether it suits your monthly budget.
I wish you good luck. All the best :)

Take a look at reliablesite.net or
softsyshosting - they both are cheap and good.
