    I need a good windows hosting company that I won't have issues with and support of ASP.NET 5 or ASP.NET Core 1.0 , ASP.NET MVC, US and SQL Server 2014.
    I have searched in search engine and found good reviews about hostforlife hosting service from

    Anyone have experience with that hosting service? Or, do you have any other recommendation?

    Thank you

    Don't know whether this is spam or not, but regardless of that, I don't think this topic belongs in a forum on running other operating systems than macOS on Apple computers.

    If you're being serious, I suggest you take a look at Azure, which is Microsoft's own hosting service and which should support Windows based frameworks just fine.

    For what you describe you'd honestly be best off with a dedicated server or a VPS. I don't think you're going to find what you want in a shared hosting environment.

    Azure can supply you with IaaS (i.e. a Windows VM that you can do anything you want). You'll need to license SQL Server yourself if you install it on the Windows VM. Another option, dependent on your needs, is to run Azure SQL Database and keep the Windows VM as just the web portion.

    As far I know this forum is all about mac. So is it allowed to post anything related to windows.
    It's up to moderator. I suggest you to do research on your own. Don't take your decision on the basis of one or two users experience. You can read article on this issue.

    In my experience HostGator and Bluehost are good option.

    I agree with more than a shared server. Maybe media temple? Thats what I use for DV and such.

    Could always rent an 1 or more EC2 instances from Amazon. They have great uptime, and if your project is/gets big, you can easily create more servers, or increase the hardware on them. You also can have them located in geographically different areas for better connectivity and less chance of downtime. Throw a few behind an ELB for load balancing. They also have RDS instances (databases) that support SQL Server 2014.

    The company I work for uses EC2 instances for a few Linux servers, an ELB to load balance our web apps to different servers, and we use an RDS instance for a PostgreSQL server. I'm confident that their Windows stuff will work well also.

    EC2 servers: https://aws.amazon.com/ec2
    ELB load balancer: https://aws.amazon.com/elasticloadbalancing
    RDS database: https://aws.amazon.com/rds/sqlserver
