Application Pool memory sizes for ASP.NET Hosting Providers

If you have specific memory requirements for the IIS Application Pools in your websites, it is worthwhile to know exactly how much a particular hosting provider is offering as dedicated to your hosting website as part of their various hosting packages.

  1. For a provider such as WinHost, the highest application pool memory size they offer is 300 MB:
  2. For a provider such as Arvixe, you get 200 MB for a Personal Class ASP hosting site, while a Business Class ASP site can bump you up to 800 MB for an application pool:
  3. For a provider such as SmarterASP.NET, you get a range of 128 MB to 512 MB, however, SmarterASP.NET support states that this memory limit is PER ACCOUNT rather than per application pool or per website:  Therefore, depending on the number of websites that you host on their account, you may be getting very little memory overall.

  1. Yes, my hosting provider ( only offer 300 MB too. But if I compare with their price, they are very affordable and fair. I realize I cant expect more with their shared hosting as the price is very low. What I emphasize here is their support is very prompt, the server is fast. So, I would recommend this provider on your list too.
