Hi guys. So, I have a website that runs a kind-of auction. I would like to schedule a number of tasks based on the following factors… any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
The Process is as follows:
First: START Auction
Second: Status CheckDate
Third: END Auction (Note, auction close at 12 noon in ALL (6) timeZones across the U.S.)
Forth: END ClosingPeriod
My website is in ASP.NET Razor, so what are my options. I assume I will need a dedicated server? I am new to asp.net and programming (only 4-weeks) so please be as detailed as possible. Thanks.

Given the nature of what you want and the fineness of the control you need, asp.net is not a suitable solution. You should look to write a Windows Service to do this. Services are outwith the scope of this forum but if you google for writing a task scheduling
service in .net I'm sure you'll find a lot of examples.
