Unlimited Domains Windows Hosting with ASPHostCentral.com

clock September 26, 2011 17:52 by author Administrator

A lot web hosting service providers will only allow you to host a single domain name on a single account. This works fine if you plan on having one website only. But later on when you need to setup additional websites, you will need to purchase a separate web hosting account for each of those additional websites. So for example, if you have 10 websites, you will need to pay for 10 web hosting accounts.

What's UNLIMITED Domain Hosting?

Unlimited Domain Hosting allows you to host unlimited number of domain names, or websites, under a single web hosting account. A hosting plan that allows unlimited Domain Hosting will definitely save you money since you can sign up for an account with one company and manage your websites from a central location.

Aside from saving you money, it also allows you to save time. Since all the domains would be hosted on the same hosting account, you can administer each domain simultaneously through the same control panel.

How Do I Take Advantage of Unlimited Domain Hosting?

The best way to get the most out of Unlimited Domain Hosting is to use an "unlimited" web hosting account. With ASPHostCentral.com, you can host any number of domains/websites under one single account and you can start from as low as $4.49/month only!

ASP.NET MVC 4 Hosting :: Working with ASP.NET MVC 4 Mobile Project Template

clock September 18, 2011 20:21 by author Administrator

With ASP.NET MVC 4, it’s even easier to setup and carry out a project which target mobile and tablet device. Yes MVC team introduce a new project template with MVC 4 which target mobile and tablet platform. This project template is build on the base of jQuery Mobile. And hence it is also optimized for better experience for touch screen

To get started with Mobile Project Template in MVC 4
Create a new ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Application
Select Mobile Application template when it ask to select project template

As far as the server side code (Controller, Model) is concern, it is same structured as Internet Application template. But responsibility of well rendering and well behavior for touch media is left on jQuery Mobile.

Inspecting Script folder of Internet Application Template and Mobile Project Template, you will find additional jquery.mobile-1.0b2.js file which is core script of jQuery Mobile included in Mobile Project Template of MVC 4.

Another major difference between Internet Application Template and Mobile Project Template is in its view. Inspecting _Layout.cshtml, you will notice some additional script reference and script in Mobile Project which is used by mobile or template device. In addition to script, another major difference in MVC 4 Mobile Project Template View is use of data-role and other attribute which is required for Mobile page structure and it used by mobile device and jQuery Mobile for proper rendering and behavior in touch screen and Smartphone

ASP.NET MVC 3.0 Hosting :: Getting your ASP.NET MVC Application to return 404 HTTP Status Code

clock August 25, 2011 17:05 by author Administrator

ASP.NET MVC3 includes a new class HttpNotFoundResult in  System.Web.Mvc namespace.

HttpNotFoundResult: Instance of HttpNotFoundResult class indicates to client(browser) that the requested resource was not found. It returns a 404 HTTP status code to the client. Generally we return 404 status code if a requested webpage is not available. In case of MVC applications we return 404 status code is in terms of resources, for example we are searching for particular user profile in the portal, if the user profile is not found, we can return 404.

How to return 404 status code from a MVC application?
First way is to instantiate HttpNotFoundResult class and return the object.

public ActionResult Index()
{
            var result = new HttpNotFoundResult();
            return result;
}


Next alternative is to makes use of HttpNotFound() helper method of the Controller class which returns the HttpNotFoundResult instance.

public ActionResult Index()
{
             return HttpNotFound();
}


we can return 404 along with custom status code description,using the overloded version of HttpNotFound(string statusDescription).

public ActionResult Index()
{
             return HttpNotFound("can not find requested resource");
}

ASP.NET MVC 3 Hosting :: Working with ASP.NET MVC 3 WebGrid (get selected row)

clock July 25, 2011 18:51 by author Administrator

Every website has to display data and every website has a Grid control. In ASP.NET MVC 3 there’s the WebGrid, which is part of the Microsoft Web Helpers library. This can be downloaded through NuGet (formerly NuPack). NuGet is a free open source package manager that makes it easy for you to find, install, and use .NET libraries in your projects. One piece of functionality that is critical is reacting when the user selects an item in the WebGrid. This article will focus on finding out which row was selected, but also how to find out more about the data that is selected.

Before moving on, you need to download ASP.NET MVC 3. Click here to download and install them using the Microsoft Web Platform Installer.

Open studio 2010 and create a new ASP.NET MVC 3 Web Application (Razor) project. To focus on the answer, I’ve got a simple model as seen below.



Using the WebGrid, it’s easy to display this data to the user.



The first column is the key to making this work. @item.GetSelectLink outputs a HTML anchor tag with the row selected. This is passed as a QueryString, and the name of the QueryString is set by the selectionFieldName property set on the grid.



To find out what row is selected is just as easy. The WebGrid has a property called SelectedRow. This sets a reference to a GridViewRow object that represents the selected row in the control. When you combine this with the HasSelection property, you can get the selected row like this.



I’ve created a partial view called _Person.cshtml. The file begins with an underscore (_) because I don’t want this file called directly from the web. The second parameter is the data being passed into the partial view. The data in this instance is the selected row.



The partial view has then got access to all the data in the selected row. Nice and easy. Thanks Microsoft!
