    Hello Wasiq,

    I've been developing IIS app's for nearly a year now.
    Compared to Visual Interdev, webclasses are a piece of
    cake.

    Performance should not be a big deal, provided you stay
    away from session variables. The first time I had
    developed *any* kind of website, I had used all session
    variables. BIG mistake. The load on the server was awful.
    Clients were complaining that they kept getting kicked
    off the website.

    I would have to say that it depends upon what
    you are trying to accomplish with your website. Is this
    a personal website or a business website?

    If this is for a business website, I would say, go for it.
    Webclasses have proven to be excellent for our business
    needs. I developed a site that allows clients to access
    their account histories online. The app has been very
    stable and maintaining the site is relatively simple.

    If you do choose IIS applications and this is your personal
    website, you might consider hosting the app yourself. I don't think there are too many companies hosting IIS apps.

    Good luck!
