Lunarpages Windows web hosting is based on Windows 2008 with IIS 7.X. It supports .NET Framework from 2.0 to 4.0, MS SQL Server database from the free Express edition to charged ($10/month more) Standard and Enterprise editions. And it integrates popular open source applications developed in .NET, like DotNetNuke, Portal Starter Kit, Report Starter Kit, and Time Tracker etc. But the fish bone is if you perfer to using MS SQL Express database, you're limited to create up to 5 databases and the free domain is only for the first year - not free for life of the hosting plan like other hosting providers.
Just like its Linux web hosting service, Lunarpages enables customers to enjoy the best price at $9.95/mo when subscribing to the service as long as 24 months. For the shorter billing terms, like 3-month, 6-month, and 12-month, you need to pay $12.95/mo, $11.95/mo and $10.95/mo respectively. In a word, it cannot be regarded as a budget-friendly Windows hosting solution.
The terrible pricing structure in tier based on the billing cycle as following:
- 24 months ($9.95/mon + Free Setup)
- 12 months ($10.95/mon + Free Setup)
- 6 months ($11.95/mon + $30 Setup)
- 3 months ($12.95/mon + $30 Setup)
