Windows hosting services in South Africa are available at Hosting. We know that finding a good hosting provider in South Africa that offers windows hosting is hard. There are only a handful of ISPs offering this with very few offering full trust windows hosting. The question is why are hosts offering full trust hosting when medium trust hosting is so much secure. The reason is simple. Having every customer’s website “just work” rather than troubleshooting intensely to get their sites to work. But what about security! Well there is a solution.

The solution is to offer isolated(dedicated) application pools on windows 2008 R2. This ensure when offering full trust hosting that all websites are still secure and “isolated” from one another even on full trust. Medium trust by far is still more secure. But offering secure full trust can help alot in assisting customers that run into many issues with a lot of ISPs hosting on medium trust platforms and getting no where.

ISPs need to always keep in mind that full trust hosting always needs to be monitored and constantly secured, patched,etc.
