August 24, 2006 (HOSTSEARCH.COM) Web hosting provider DiscountASP.NET (http:// www.discountasp.net) is offering a range of additional IIS management tools through its hosting. The enhancements are geared towards developers and include new additions to the IIS management tool suite; an on-demand application pool recycling tool and a real-time web site stop/start tool. The additions are available through the DiscountASP.NET Control Panel.
The Application Pool Recycle Tool is useful for hung applications, to release locked files or databases, and to reset session variables. DiscountASP.NET hosts each web site in its own isolated application pool meaning this tool can be utilized without impacting other customer web sites.
The Web Site Stop/Start Tool allows users to stop their website from serving web pages on a temporary basis. It is useful for web site maintenance and avoiding visitors experiencing a number of incomplete web pages.
"Our goal is to provide developers with tools for maximum control over their hosting service." said Takeshi Eto, VP Marketing. "DiscountASP.NET is continually enhancing the hosting experience and is committed to innovation in ASP.NET hosting."
