Old Website Migrate to ASP.NET or VPS Running Windows/IIS


New Member
Hello, I have a really old (circa 1998) mostly static website, which was hosted on IIS running/Windows 2008R2 and which I need to preserve it as-is. I believe it uses some older tech like ASP and server-side includes.

Would your ASP.NET hosting service be suitable for this type of site OR would I need to purchase a VPS running windows, install IIS and configure?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide,

It really depends on what versions are in use. Running a windows server can be complicated, and windows 2008 is end of life as far as I am aware. Generally I wouldn't recommend it unless you are familiar administrating a windows server.

Plesk, considered the best control panel for windows, does not recommend anything lower than windows 2019 due to security issues with all lower version (even 2016)

On our own asp plans:
  • Support Languages : PHP 5.2, 5.6, 7.1 7.2 & 7.3 - ASP.NET 3.5, 4, 4.5 - .NET core 2.1.4. 2.2 & 3.0 Supported - Classic ASP, ASPUpload, ASPJpeg, ASP.NET ToolKit, ASP.NET Framework 3.5 , 4.7 & 4.8
  • Modules Support : Silverlight, ODBC, ASP.NET MVC 6, 5 , 4. Additional modules can be installed upon request.

I'm not sure if this supports what you are using.
