So my only selection criteria is will my sites run fast for my customers. For this I looked for a host local to me, i.e. Europe based. I do not believe is using a host from a different time zone, which is unfortunate as there is a lot more choice in the USA. Then I looked for a host who has knowledge of hosting ASP.NET 4.6, who claims to be able to configure their servers for ASP.NET 4.6, and who offers good shared hosting. Then I look up the testimonials on the host to see what sites they are running and how fast they are.
With the .NET Framework 4.6, you'll enjoy better performance with the new 64-bit "RyuJIT" JIT and high DPI support for WPF and Windows Forms. ASP.NET provides HTTP/2 support when running on Windows 10 and has more async task-returning APIs. There are also major updates in Visual Studio 2015 for .NET developers, many of which are built on top of the new Roslyn compiler framework. The .NET languages -- C# 6, F# 4, VB 14 -- have been updated, too. There are many great features in the .NET Framework 4.6. Some of these features, like RyuJIT and the latest GC updates, can provide improvements by just installing the .NET Framework 4.6.
New language features delivered in the updated .NET Compiler Platform (“Roslyn”) are available throughout ASP.NET. You can use these advanced features on your web forms markup, razor templates, and in your code-behind files. Web Forms projects now include the Microsoft.CodeDom.Providers.DotNetCompilerPlatform package by default. This allows the web forms projects to pre-compiler and deliver your web forms projects significantly faster. In Windows 10 and ASP.NET 4.6 there is now support for HTTP/2, the next major update to the web’s protocol. According to the HTTP working group, this is not a rewrite of the protocol and that all methods, status codes, and semantics remain the same.
In the end I found a host which offered a great shared plan. Who guarantees never to put more than 10 ASP.NET 4.6 implementations on a server. My conversion rate is up. My site is running faster than it ever has, and I am making good money.
