[dba-VB] Is it possible to develop active ASP.NET Web Services?

Hi Gustav,


And I'm aware there exists getting developed rapidly "cloud computing"
concept/technologies(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_computing ) where
one can rent a virtual PC with windows with IIS, .NET Framework etc. but the
renting of such a "cloud server" is still considerably more expensive (am I
missing something?) than renting ASP.Net hosting, which for my application
case could be just around USD10/month...

Thank you.

Hi Shamil

OK, that explains. With no pc/server running contiguously nowhere else, you
will have to do it that way.

Hi Gustav,

I just need to perform some scheduled tasks running on ASP.NET hosting
server, on which I cannot run nor console applications, nor windows
services. And scheduled task should run automatically 24x7x365 independent
from my PC being on or off. And I assume (/it's required) there is no other
PC to "charge" with running console application/windows service 24x7x365...

Let's say the scheduled task is a one watching some information on .NET,
calculating stats, and e-mailing reports to admin/subscribers etc.

Thank you.
