ASP.NET Core 5.0 Hosting is here

Announcement

Microsoft recently released .NET 5.0. Note that Microsoft is changing their naming convention for .NET. Instead of calling this new major release .NET Core 4.0, they went with .NET 5.0 (or you may see it out there as ASP.NET Core 5.0).

Naming convention aside, we want to let you know that ASP.NET Core 5.0 is now available on Winhost’s Windows 2012 and Windows 2016 hosting platform. We support framework dependent deployment (FDD) for applications created with ASP.NET Core 5.0.

Note: If you cannot use framework-dependent deployment for any .NET Core version, remember that you can always publish using self-contained deployment (SCD). (For example, we show how to use self-contained deployment with Visual Studio 2017, in our knowledge base.) If any customers have questions about deployment, contact technical support.
