Web.com vs Discountasp.net
Since both websites seem nice and list on top windows provider list. How should we choose between the two? Here I'll compare them side by side and you get the basic conclusion which is more suitable for different projects.
Hosting features – They both offer similar hosting plans and technical stuff. but if you need big storage then web.com would be your right choice, Web.com can offer you unlimited storage while there's only 1 GB available from discountasp.net. For hosting features page, I'm sure you will be tired of reading the long list from discountasp.net since they write too much, you must be patient in order to read all their great offer.
User friendly – At the first look for both sites, which do you like more? I believe it's web.com, why? They have a clean and well structured web design, every service is list clearly and won't cost your patience to learn more. Back to discountasp.net, they can't even have a nice looking website but just putting some rewards everywhere on home page. What worse is the website is not compatible with different browsers and not renderring correctly. Who would trust such website?
User feedback – By searching some keywords from goolge you will get many positive and negative reviews for both companies. I'm not sure if its because web.com offers various service and discountasp only offers one service plan. discountasp seems got more complaints. Personally, I would complain the ugly UI design. From our customer experience with the two companies, they like discountasp more for great MS technologies support, like web.com more for easy and clean User interface.
Discountasp is better choice if you are highly rely on microsfot technologies, The best of the best with discountasp is they use smartermail for their email system, it's by far the best email software on the market. If you like more hosting space and bandwidth, web.com is absolutely the right choice. Beside, web.com be able to offer linux hosting with the industry leading system. So in case you like to try with linux environment, web.com will meet your requirements.
