Below is a list of various data center locations. By placing a check next to the location, you can search for hosting packages which have a data center there.
This can be an important factor in your selection of the right hosting package because network transit times can affect the speed at which your site loads for your
visitors, so if your site caters to a certain area/region of the world, then you most likely want your site to be hosted in a data center near that area/region.
If your target audience is world wide, then choose the data center closest to you (so that it will be easier for you to manage) and look into CDN
(Content Delivery Network) services. Note that checking less items will often return more results because the tool will only return hosting packages
which meet all the criteria you have selected.
The sections previously known as Code Support, Components, and IIS Features have now all been combined under Technologies. By placing a check
next to the technology, you can search for hosting packages which support that feature. Note that checking less items will often return more
results because the tool will only return hosting packages which meet all the criteria you have selected. Below is also a short description
of the types of technologies (i.e. code support, components, and IIS features) that was available before and make up this list.
Code Support refers to the base code (i.e. framework, programming language) that a hosting plan can support.
Components can refer to a software package, a web service, a web resource or a module that encapsulates a set of related
functions or data. They can be used to reduce software development time and/or extend the functionality of existing code or system. Some
components need to be installed on the server in order to be used so there isn't a single hosting plan that supports them all. Therefore, if
you wrote an application utilizing a specific component, it may not run on the hosting platform because it's not installed.
IIS Features refers to the modules that have been delegated to you in IIS Manager and/or web.config settings that are
configurable by you. Not all hosting plans/companies provide access to all the features available through IIS Manager/web.config file because
of infrastructure, performance or security reasons.
Third Party Applications refer to (CMS) Content Management Systems, eCommerce, blog writers, image galleries, (IDE) Integrated Development
Environments, management tools and website builders, basically any software that can help you design, build and maintain a website. Below is a
list of third party applications that can be installed on a Windows based hosting package or used to help manage one. By placing a check next to
the third party application, you can search for hosting packages which support it. Note that checking less items will often return more results
because the tool will only return hosting packages which meet all the criteria you have selected.
