ASP.NET Core is an open source modular framework that is distributed as NuGet packages, is a cross-platform ASP.NET that works across Windows, Linux and Mac, and supports side-by-side app versioning. Being a complete rewrite, Microsoft decided to rename the latest release from ASP.NET 5 to ASP.NET Core in order to avoid implying a continuation of ASP.NET 4.x.
“We launched our hosting solution back in 2003 with early support for ASP.NET 1.0. Thirteen years later, we are proud to introduce support for the latest evolution of a now cross-platform .NET” said Takeshi Eto, VP Marketing and Business Development at DiscountASP.NET.
ASP.NET Core hosting is available on the DiscountASP.NET Windows 2012 hosting platform.
