HostMySite deploys ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX support

Microsoft certified hosting partner, announces ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Extensions 1.0 support for all shared hosting plans featuring ASP.NET 2.0. The web host is including the ability to use the ASP.NET AJAX extensions as a free component within its Builder plans. added support for this new technology to help developers build interactive webpages with an increased level of interactivity, speed, and usability.

Asynchronous JavaScript and XML, Ajax for short, is a web development technique used to aid the creation of interactive web applications. Instead of needing to reload an entire webpage with each update from the server, Ajax allows a JavaScript engine to exchange data with the server behind the scenes as well as update parts of the existing webpage within the user’s browser. Ajax allows webpages to be more responsive, usable, and interactive.

Before launching any new service, the web host invites selective groups of customers to fine tune functionality and features prior to the public launch. Using this method ensures new services are offered with the utmost quality for not only the product itself, but the supporting customer service as well. During the beta process an extensive list of support documentation is created for customers to use once the offering is in production.

Mr. Sood confirms that “we have a team at devoted to continually research and test the latest technologies along with a loyal base of customers who are eager to provide insight and feedback to those services under development. In doing so, we try to make the process of sharing opinions and ideas as easy as possible by providing as many ways for customers to interact with us via email, chat, phone, surveys, and forums. The best thing we can do is listen to our customers.”
