MVC Application directly on a hosted web server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys,

    I stopped coding for a while and have just got back into it. I want to create an MVC application directly on a hosted web server where I do not have control over the IIS or configuration.

    I can open the website by typing the URL but i cannot create an MVC application directly i can only create it locally on my computer.

    Is there any way to make this work?

    Also I have one machine at home so I am not certain what needs to be installed on the hosted server for MVC to work.

    Any ideas would be awesome, thanks.

  • Hi,

    Welcome to the MSDN Forum.

    It seems like a web problem. You can consider posting it at the following more appropriate forums related at MVC for more efficient responses, where MVC experts live in.

    Also, I will move this thread to the Off-Topic Forum.

  • I have a personal F#/C# MVC 3.0 application (No T-SQL) with Discount ASP.NET   here for $5 a month [1]:

    http://www.conservativeart.net/

    I used MVP Daniel Mohl's F#/C# MVC 3.0 Template: http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/f57aa816-e96b-4133-ab5d-9b9b99914ead/?SRC=Home to create the application in VS2010 on my local machine and then used the Build/(Publish Web) option of VS2010 to upload the contents and patched minor issues with standalone ftp. 

    There are only two things I don't like about Discount ASP.NET:

    1. Their security is a bit lax (but for a personal web page they will do)
    2. They charge an extra $10 a month for T-SQL service (I don't need T-SQL right now so this doesn't affect me)

    If you are looking for a decent Microsoft Gold Certified Parter hosting platform for a personal web page, then Discount ASP.NET may work for you; unfortunately, until they address their security issues, I wouldn't host a for profit or sensitive information site with Discount ASP.NET.

    Other low cost managed ASP.NET hosts can be found here http://www.microsoft.com/web/hosting/home  but I haven't tried any of them.

    Respectfully,

    Shawn

    [1] - Becuase I was using an F#/C# MVC mixture, my setup was slightly awkward.  If you just want to host straight C# or VB.NET MVC 3 then your setup will be easier.
