Over the last few
popularity among developers, and because of this, utilizing the software system
has become more of a priority for many Web hosting providers.
Microsoft Windows hosting solutions provider DiscountASP.NET
has been offering node.js support in its WebMatrix 2.0 beta labs sandbox for a
while, and many of the developers using it have requested that it make node.js
generally available in its Web hosting service.
Now, its Windows 2008 hosting platform officially features
beta support for node.js.
It was a natural choice for DiscountASP.NET to begin
supporting node.js, as Microsoft announced in 2011 that it would be actively
working with Joyent to port node.js to Windows. The first stable port was
available last November.
