Recap of New Hosting Services For 2016

This is the season when everyone is doing their annual recaps, so I figured we should do one too.  We had a busy year on a lot of fronts, and here are just a few of the new features and services that we introduced in 2016.

ASP.NET Core (ASP.NET 5)
After a long wait and a naming convention change, Microsoft finally released their highly anticipated ASP.NET Core (formerly known as ASP.NET 5), and you didn’t have to wait for us to support it. We support ASP.NET Core on all our hosting plans that run on Windows 2012.

Microsoft SQL 2016
In 2016, Microsoft released their next SQL version and, of course, we made it available for you to use.

SpamExperts Email Spam Filter
You told us that you were frustrated with increasing spam, so we partnered with SpamExperts to bring you a cost-effective premium spam filter solution.

PHP 7
This year we introduced support for PHP 7. Even though we are a Microsoft-based host, we are keeping up with PHP too, so you can stay on the cutting edge of all aspects of web development.

New Top Level Domains
There are tons of new domain extensions available now, so we revamped our old domain registration system and introduced a handful of new domain extensions. We’ll be introducing even more in the future, and in the meantime we’re open to your feedback regarding other domain extensions you would like to see us offer.

Free Website Migration Services
We understand that moving a website can be a painful process and the prospects of moving can keep you stuck with a less than desirable host for longer than you’d like. We are making it easier to move your site to Winhost by offering free website migration services. Make it your new year’s resolution to finally rid yourself of your tired old host!

Have a great holiday season and a happy new year.
