  1. 1. Back in 1997 when the majority of web siteswere being served from UNIX servers I chose to use Windows servers. I chose Windowsservers because they gave the fastest serverside development environment with ASP and Access databases. I could cut my teeth on server side programming without killing my brain trying to learn Perl and hosting
  2. 2. I am an entrepreneur I don't care much for technology fortechnologies sake I care about technology for what it can do for us ashumans Business is where we can bring about products and servicesthat we can all gain value from and improve our lives Windows serversallowed me to focus less on the technical aspects and focus more on thebusiness rules, functions and features of the products and services Iwanted to deliver
  3. 3. At that time my sites were simple directories for real estate, motor carsand local sites Over the following 2 years I got more excited about theWindows platform as a means for more and more people like me to bringabout innovations to the internet - fast Windows continues to be a greatplatform to develop dynamic, interactive, database driven sites with ASP,ASP Net with Access or SQL Server database back ends This is awonderful platform to learn the basics of what it takes to develop such asite
  4. 4. ASP and Access provide a solid environment for anyone to learn thebasics of coding and databases The work produced with ASP andAccess can be easily converted to ASP Net and SQL Server to be farmore scalable (handle more people using the site at one time) ASP is aserver side programming language based on Basic Basic is a beginnersprogramming language
  5. 5. Access is a simple desktop database application available with MicrosoftOffice that provides many wizards and tools to quickly develop afunctional database You will find many learning resources, tutorials andfree code and samples for both ASP and Access across the internetOnce you have developed or copied and pasted some code and serverside databases together you will gain an incredible amount of confidenceYou will naturally move on to more advanced projects You will also beopen to a whole new world of freely downloadable web applications(open source and generally free) to modify and try on your sites
  6. 6. In doing this you will come across sites written in PHP and ASP netrequiring MySQL or SQL server databases If you are running your siteson a Windows server you can plat around with the whole world of serverside scripting languages: from ASP to PHP, ASP Net and even Perl! TheWindows Server hosting environment will help a beginner gainconfidence and skills in the basics of developing a dynamic webapplication Then it will allow you to progress to more advanced webapplications using a mix of ASP, ASP
  7. 7. Net, PHP with MySQL and SQL server back-end A good Windows hostwill allow you to run ASP, ASP net and PHP with MySQL or SQL serverall on the one site You will find a Windows hosting account will give youfar more freedom and flexibility to run a wide range of web applicationsand allow you to get a dynamic web site up and running fast Today I stillprefer to prototype a site with ASP and then once proven move it to ASP
  8. 8. Net or PHP so it is scalable ASP allows me to quickly get my ideas upand running fast With feedback and if it is successful I can invest moretime in a more appropriate language for the application with ASP Net orPHP A Windows hosting environment provides me this flexibility
  9. 9. If you're looking to start in the world of developing web sites orwant to take your web design skills to the next level, the world cheaphosting of Windows hosting is a good place to start It will allow you todevelop your skills with a very simple coding language and database withASP and MS-Access The Windows hosting environment will feel familiarwith concepts you are used to, from using the Windows operating systemon your desktop or notebook And when you're ready to take yourprojects further with ASP
  10. 10. Net or PHP your Windows server will be able to handle that too In aworld where time is money and both are in short supply, flexibility is keyA Windows hosting environment will provide you with the necessaryflexibility to save both time and money and get your web projects up andrunning faster
