Default web hosting questions cont..

I has some follow-up questions in choosing a web hosting provider in relationship to using Expression Web:

It looks like if I wanted to use the ASP.NET web page development features in Expression Web then I would need a web hosting provider that supports ASP.NET, not just ASP - does that sound right?

If I wanted to have my web applications interface with a Access database, would Access be another area that the web hosting provider would need to support?

For those web applications where I do interface with an Access database, do I need to use the Expression Web ASP.NET features to interface with the Access database or are there other ways to specify in a web page how to interface with the Access database? I ask this question because in the book it seemed like using ASP.NET to interface with a database was the only method presented in detail.

I'm curious about these questions because I have found some prospective web hosting providers that I like but it looks like they do not offer the ASP.NET and Access features.

Thanks again.

David, in response to your post:

1. Yes, you will need a web hosting provider that supports ASP.NET...which essentially means Windows-based hosting. Brinkster support Windows-hosting and also supports development on the .NET Framework (which includes ASP.NET).

2. Because Access is file-based, most web hosting providers support it. Brinkster for instance, gives you a databases folder which can contain Access databases amongst others.

3. It has nothing to do with the program or what features the program supports. How you connect to your database is up to you and usually written within the connection string. This can be done in code or visually within Expression Web.
