need a web host with windows server
« on: June 04, 2015, 02:19:01 PM »
Hi! I am a software developer and I'm looking to sell some software. I'm mainly going to be running a forum, but I also need a bit of storage space for this software, so I figure that I only need shared web hosting.

The software that I'm selling is a .exe file using the .NET framework. Now I'm going to have a PHP script which executes an encrypter which then encrypts my .exe file, then the PHP script will take a copy of the file and move it to a new folder and then zip it. The zipped files will be deleted every 2 or 3 months, and shouldn't take up more space than around 2-3 GB (that is all the files combined).

For that to work, I need this requirements:
1. The webhost has to offer Windows as the operating system of the server.
2. No PHP restrictions. Well, at least it can't block functions like exec.
3. At least 10GB storage space, and an option to upgrade. I'm looking for a webhost that has good and fast support (so 24/7, or close to that) and I'd also like SSL as an option.
4. I prefer to host in european server (it's my consideration about the site speed)

I found that Hostforlife meet my requirements. Are you guys are familiar with this hosting provider? I'm hoping that some of you have a good sites in mind. Thanks in advance happy

Sorry but I am not familiar with that host. If I were you, I will definitely go with 4Goodhosting.com. My site is always up and running. When I update my blogs, changes are immediately applied. The Control Panel, being well-organized and user-friendly! They have exceptional customer service. These guys are always up 24/7 and ready to assist. If you are looking for Windows hosting, this is the company you can rely on.

As the chipper has already stated that the host mentioned by you is unfamiliar and I am too of the opinion that you should not trust these little known web hosts. They are highly unreliable and cannot be considered as provider of reliable services. As you have mentioned that your specific requirements need Windows hosting, so I would recommend that you go with a reliable Windows web hosting https://www.znetlive.com/shared-hosting-windows/ provider. From my personal experience, I would recommend ZNetLive which is well recognized web hosting provider. Here, you will find a specific plan for your requirements, get 24x7 support and your website will always be up.
