SiteBuilder Contest for Students

I do not do these advertisements often... because I rather be an information producer and not necessarily a conduit. But, sometimes, I wager I should try to be a good corporate citizen...

I had worked with John before on the Web Based Shared Hosting Accelerator and the general space of Mass Hosting with IIS6, and SiteBuilder is an ongoing extension of that work... so I kinda have an interest in the space. 🙂 Hey, we seriously want to make building web applications and hosting on Windows easy and cheap for both the hoster and the end-user, so you gotta tell us what you want, like, and not like.

For those of you with youngsters or know of youngsters that love to work on design and web pages (not necessarily code them up, but that would be cool, too), this would be a great opportunity to have fun and have a chance to win some cool stuff. 😀

    Want brutal feedback?

    I wish MS would stop pushing 3rd party teaserware (Sitebuilder is from ensim and like a drug dealer they are trying to hook hosters with one year free and then make them pay).

    If you really want to encourage hosters, how about a built-by Microsoft End-user control panel that totally uses microsoft technologies like Active Directory, ASP.Net master pages/skins/themes, and especially a premier user experience with heavy Atlas/Ajax and modern UI concepts.

    Politically, MS is still dancing around the Ensim and SWSoft "partner offerings" of overpriced control panel stuff that is de facto Linux features and nothing extra on Windows.

    A Microsoft branded, Microsoft technology-based control panel at very affordable SPLA prices would give us a real edge against all the generic cPanel Linux hosts out there a dime a dozen.

    Robert – I have passed your feedback on to John.

    It sounds like you are saying that Microsoft should produce a product like Small Business Server 2003, which integrates various other Microsoft technologies like Exchange, Sharepoint, IIS, ISA, etc into a real package from Microsoft that VARs can sell and support to their end-users — and do it for Web Hosting.
