Blog Windows Webhosting Windows Hosting Homepage revised
June 16, 2009
Windows Hosting has a new look, at anyway.  Our developers have been working on a new site design for us for quite some time now and yesterday we went live with several homepage changes that reflect the new changes in the works for the appliedi website. Don’t worry though we’re not anywhere near done as we’re migrating the site to a CMS application that will allow the site to be more dynamic and updated much more frequently.

February 10, 2009

PHP on Windows Server is gaining great popularity thanks to Windows Hosts that support PHP like us (Applied Innovations), the work Microsoft and Zend are doing together to make PHP even faster on Windows and the large number of PHP developers that realize Apache represents only a piece of the total website/ webserver market out there and want to really expand their market.  A few months ago I had enabled WP-cache on my site but in order to get it running I needed to make numerous tweaks.

Microsoft releases Hyper-V 2008 Server.
October 2, 2008

You just install this and then create your VM’s and install the OS of choice into your VMs. I think the best way to think of this is as Server Core but with only one role: Virtualization.  Or think Hyper-V without the overhead of a full Host OS.  Here’s a few Read more [...]
Blog The Cool Stuff Windows Webhosting now running in Windows 2008 Shared Hosting
September 25, 2008
Last week announced support for Windows 2008 shared hosting and SQL Server 2008 shared hosting and I have immediately moved over to the new platform. My blog is based on WordPress which is a PHP application. On the IIS7 platform we've enabled FastCGI and are using the newest build of PHP5 with the 'non-thread safe' DLLs for better performance in a CGI type environment.  What's the big deal?
