Pasadena, California – (The Hosting News) – March 13, 2009 – hosting and SQL hosting provider, DiscountASP.NET, has expanded its Open Control Panel API with the addition of APIs for SQL 2008 Database backup.

The new SQL Backup API is part of DiscountASP.NET’s Open Control Panel Initiative, whose goal is to offer an open hosting system framework which provides customers with maximum control over their hosting presence management.

Takeshi Eto, VP Marketing noted, ”Our control panel API is a move to provide our customers with a next-generation hosting experience. Our vision for the Open Control Panel Initiative is to offer our customers the flexibility and freedom of choice. They can manage their hosting presence using our hosted control panel application or through web services and customized user-driven solutions.”
In 2006, to support this initiative, DiscountASP.NET introduced an ASP.NET web service API library which customers can use to develop their own web, desktop, or mobile applications that interface directly with their web hosting account. In the first phase, DiscountASP.NET exposed methods to retrieve resource usage information, and manage some IIS functions, such as recycling their application pool. DiscountASP.NET exposes methods for customers to backup their SQL 2008 databases.
 DiscountASP.NET customers can activate access to the API library through their control panel and are assigned a unique Authentication Key. In addition, a Sandbox Key is provided so that customers can test their applications without the risk of making changes to their hosting account.
 DiscountASP.NET is a global provider in Microsoft Windows hosting, focused on providing the best value in .NET hosting and SQL database hosting. A Microsoft Gold Certified partner, DiscountASP.NET was one of the first hosts to launch SQL 2008 hosting and Windows 2008 hosting. Through strong word-of-mouth and their commitment to Microsoft technology, DiscountASP.NET has become the choice for affordable enterprise-class ASP.NET web hosting.
