Sydney Royal Easter Show Website uses ASP.NET


My kids made me go look at the Sydney Royal Easter Show website, because they wanted to know some facts and figures about when, what etc.


As I was surfing around, I noticed the old .ASPX extenstion and got really excited – yes I am easily excited!


I am a nosey person, so I checked the HTTP headers, as one does, to find out some more.



The server returned the following response headers:
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: Microsoft-IIS/5.0
Date: Sun, 07 Mar 2004 07:48:34 GMT
X-Powered-By: ASP.NET
Connection: close

Cache-Control: private
Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8
Content-Length: 16486


Then, time to do a WHOIS search

Ahh, the explains why its IIS5, it’s hosted by Telstra!


And the site was developed by Secure Interactive, a local Sydney company. I don’t know of these guys, but looks like they do some cool stuff.
