I'm ready to deploy and I want to get my web service off of my home development server and out onto the internet. Who would you recommend for good, reliable Mono hosting? Doesn't have to be rock-bottom cheap, just classy and stable.

If its an web service, why are you not considering hosting, even if you have used mono for building it? – Peter M Oct 20 '09 at 16:28
So that the hosting environment matches my dev environment. I'm old and unaccustomed to change. The last time I secured hosting, I noticed that Windows hosting was substantially more expensive. Also, I am using ActiveRecord and SQLite and don't want my teetering technology stack to have to bear any more weight – Chris McCall Oct 20 '09 at 16:35

Which one do you use? – Chris McCall Oct 20 '09 at 21:49

Definitely get a VPS (Linode, Rimuhosting, etc) and install mono yourself. Shared hosting and mono don't make sense together for main reasons.

Well said. Today with 60/70$ per year you can get a vps running linux or unix. The money you save on MS licenses, you can get a vps – Guilherme Cardoso Jul 1 '13 at 15:18

Try Ubiquity Hosting

Their linux plans include Mono by default...

WebHost.UK.Net* tell me they support the ASP.Net Mono Framework, though I haven't used it yet. They have servers in the UK and USA.

*that's an affiliate link, I don't work for them, but I've found their Linux hosting to be very good (and very cheap)
