ASP.NET 4.5 and .NET Framework 4.5 are the next version of ASP.NET Technology from Microsoft. This new .NET 4 Framework and Visual Studio 11 have tons of features and improvements from previous version that can help developers to build and manage great websites and applications in shorter time and generate faster performance.

SmarterASP.NET is proud to annouce that all of our shared and semi dedicated hosting plan supports the lateast ASP.NET 4.5 hosting and .NET Framework 4.5. hosted on Windows 2008 Server and IIS 7. We'll continue to support ASP.NET 4.0, ASP.NET 3.5 Hosting and ASP.net 2.0 Hosting. We still support ASP.NET 4.0, ASP.NET 3.5 Hosting and ASP.NET 2.0 Hosting.
ASP.NET 4.5 supports the ability to read streams asynchronously on an HTTP request entity, and the ability to flush asynchronously. ASP.NET 4.5 also gives you the ability to double-buffer an HTTP request entity, which provides easier integration with downstream HTTP handlers such as .aspx page handlers and ASP.NET MVC controllers. ASP.NET 4.5 also add a new companion method for reading the request entity in a buffered way. This new overload works by supporting both synchronous and asynchronous reads. ASP.NET 4.5 makes it easy to selectively read invalidated request data. ASP.NET 4.5 also integrates the popular AntiXSS library (formerly an external library). ASP.NET 4.5 introduces two features that make it easy for you to selectively work with invalidated input: deferred request validation and access to unvalidated request data.
