Windows Server Host Now Features node.js Support

Posted on 7.26.2012

Over the last few years, server-side JavaScript implementation node.js has really picked up in 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.
