How to put my ASP.NET website online

Posted on

Question :

I’m trying to put my ASP.NET application in the air, and I’ve never had contact with it, do I need to turn my .CSHTML into .HTML? Or something like that?


Answer :

By extension of the file I can see that the structure is of a MVC C # , all you need is a Windows hosting with Net Framework support.

As our friend above said, .cshtml has not only HTML it is compiled on the server and as a result the client accessing it is rendering.

Submission of the site is done through Deploy or FTP , there are other options but as it comes to hosting these are very likely to be these options, the build of the project this publication is made with Visual Studio .

But keep in mind that your hosting should be from the Windows (IIS) platform.

With the new .NET version, .NET Core. Now supporting multiple platforms (Windows, Linux and OSx) I will leave the Microsoft documentation helping deploy ASP.NET applications in the Linux environment.

Other platforms also available in the documentation.

Publish to a Linux Production Environment


Sabatinando the author of the question, I discovered that the hosting plan is Linux, which (so far) does not support a server that runs ASP.NET MVC properly.

Use Azure on a free instance to host your site for now.



Simple and direct response: No.

The .cshtml extension is used by the ASP.NET View Engine Razor , which may contain code besides HTML, but in the end it is rendered pure HTML.
