Does 3Essentials support Web Services (ASMX) and WCF Web Services

Yes, 3Essentials provides 2.0, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0 frameworks, which include support for:

  • Web Services (.asmx files) 
  • WCF Web Services (.svc), see note on WCF service host models below.

WCF service host model:

WCF services offers three service hosting models, including:

  • Self-hosting in any managed .NET application
  • Hosting in a Windows service
  • Hosting in IIS

... only the third, hosting within IIS (as a .svc on a website), would be available on our SHARED hosting services.  For MANAGED SERVER customers,  all three options are available, with coordination with our support team for installation and configuration.
