The basic Windows web hosting plan of Dotster fails to support the latest Microsoft .NET technology. It's just provided for PHP developers to host their PHP website using MySQL databases, who may not know Linux related knowledge well. Except this plan hosts your applications in Windows operating system, all the other features are similar to the basic Linux web hosting of Dotster, including only 1 hosting domain, 5GB disk space, 300GB monthly data transfer. And it also integrates a lot of applications for you to easily start your website, blog, photogallery, forums and community. We can see that this company may not be a solid choice for the big fans of Windows hosting.

And also, the price of Dotster Windows hosting solutions seems a little bit higher than many other competitors. It has released three Windows hosting solutions starting at $4.75/mo. Without any discount, the price is valid for 1-year, 2-year and 3-year billing terms. Each Windows hosting package comes with $100 Google Adwords, $50 Yahoo!/Bing, and $50 Facebook Advertising. Many free applications are also available here, like WordPress, b2evolution, Drupal, Joomla, and so on.
