Best Fast & Cheap Windows Shared Hostings For ASP.Net Core

I’ve been using VPS(Virtual Private Server) for many years. I have tried many providers & always been satisfied. I have also used Amazon Web Services (AWS) for some of my clients. It offers reliable & scalable cloud computing services. When It comes to Microsoft Azure Cloud Services, It’s also an open, flexible, enterprise-grade cloud computing platform with great features as AWS.

All the above solutions to host your .Net Core Applications are great but expensive & require a little networking knowledge to set up your web application.

Do you want a cheap shared hosting plan with the support of latest .Net Core Versions?

Yes, In this article, I’m going to list down some of the cheap, fast & reliable web hosting providers to publish your ASP.Net Core Application.

Background

2 days ago, I bought a Godaddy Windows shared hosting plan to host an ASP.Net Core 2.2 Application for my client. I have used Godaddy’s VPS which is really great with the power of Plesk. After purchasing Shared Hosting I found that It doesn’t support .Net Core 2.2 (till I’m writing this Article – Aug 2019). Actually they added support till .Net Core 2.0 in July 2019 & looks like there’s no recent plan to update. So I decided to ask their support to refund. I’ll appreciate their really friendly support, they help me to initiate my refund request.

Conclusion

There’re also many other great providers, I just listed few after comparing features & testing some of them. The above list is only for shared hosting. Many Hosting providers also provide Cloud-Based hosting, Virtual Private Servers & Dedicated Servers as well. Most of the well-known hosting providers have still not added support for .Net Core 3.0. So, If you’re planning to host your Asp.Net Core 3.0 Application then first confirm then buy your hosting plan. You can also check this list from Microsoft.

  1. I’m also Asphostportal user here. Everything works good, as advertised. Two features that I love using their service are

    1. They support Let’s Encrypt, no need to waste money for SSL anymore
    2. Ability to connect SQL remotely and the SQL connection is very fast.
