What is VB.NET and C# Supported Hosting?
Visual Studio (formerly VB.NET or Visual Basic) and C#, both of which are now part of the .NET environment, are two of Microsoft's flagship programming languages. They can be used to create interactive websites as well as a variety of applications for use both on and off the Web.
For those who choose a Windows environment for their Web server and hosting, Microsoft's ASP.NET environment is a powerful tool for creating both professional, engaging websites and Web-based applications. And if you develop your own applications or do any of your own custom programming in the ASP.NET environment, you'll most likely want to choose a host that supports two of Microsoft's most important languages: Visual Studio (formerly known as VB.NET) and C# (C#.NET).
These .NET languages are similar in function, but differ significantly in execution. It's often assumed (incorrectly) that C#.NET has capabilities that exceed that of Visual Basic, but the fact is that both languages are capable of creating powerful content and applications.
Visual Studio (based entirely on the current version of the Visual Basic language, first released in 1991), is designed for ease of use, and uses a combination of components (visual objects manipulated in a drag-and-drop environment) and hand-coding to create everything from simple Graphic User Interface (GUI) applications to complex applications, ActiveX controls, or interfaces for database management
C#.NET (first released in 2001 and based both on the C++ and Java programming languages) is more code-oriented, and can be used to create powerful applications with maximum economy of resources. Whereas VB.NET is generally used to build large applications in the online arena, C#.NET is valuable for Web developers who need to police their code and fine-tune their applications and sites.
Support for both C#.NET and Visual Studio requires a Windows operating system (OS), so you'll need a Windows hosting package to take advantage of their capabilities. Windows hosting is generally slightly more expensive than comparable Linux-based hosting, so you may want to budget accordingly. Also, your host may include native support for ASP.NET components as part of your hosting package, but you'll likely be responsible for purchasing and downloading the latest version of Visual Basic or C#.
