New DotNet Plans — Awesome Changes Right Under Your Nose
Back in April, we announced new .NET plans that featured, among other things, individual application pools.
Individual app pools, of course, offers up some nice benefits: Now you can host your .NET site in a Full Trust environment, on a shared server, without risking some of the security and performance hazards that you had to worry about before (when you had to share an app pool with other sites and customers).
It’s also allowed us to start building out some new features in the WebControlCenter that gives you the ability to adjust, or manipulate, your individual hosting environment.
For the April release, this began with our Framework Manager Tool, which allowed customers to change their site’s .NET version on the fly.
Since then, however, we’ve continued to build the feature out even more. We did away with the Framework Manager Tool and replaced it with the App Pool Manager, which currently gives you the ability to:
- Recycle your application pool
- Change your app pool bitness between 64-bit and 32-bit
- Change your app pool pipeline mode between Integrated and Classic
- Change your .NET Framework version between 2.0/3.5 and 4.0
If you think that’s cool, we’re not even done yet. Stay tuned for even more new features, including a big one that we’ll be announcing in the near future.
So, if you’re currently on one of the new .NET plans, check out our KB on how to access & make changes with the App Pool Manager.
