A while back I wrote about my experiences installing SQL (and additionally .NET 3.5 SP1) on a Windows Server 2008 VPS. For various reasons I decided not to keep the VPS server at the time (mostly because of the cost, and the fact that I didn’t really have a strong need for it). Recently, however, I’ve really begun to ramp up my ASP.NET MVC development work, and it’s blatantly apparent that I need a Windows server full time. After shopping around for a while, I decided to go back to KickAssVPS.com and see what their packages looked like. Having ordered my shiny new VPS, the next step was to get the environment configured for hosting my MVC applications.
