Spotlight: ASP.NET E-Commerce with the best - AbleCommerce

Are you ready to sell your hard earned VB.NET work on the web? Don't want to give a big cut of your hard earned income to resellers? Then look no further, we reviewed each ASP.NET e-commerce package available in depth and found the winner:

AbleCommerce 5.5 ASP.NET Edition

We've used other ASP.NET shopping carts and find they are either coded horrendously and over-marketed (making you believe it's a good package or can handle an enterprise load), or is suffering from tremendous security issues, bugs, instability, and lack of features, and needless to say no or expensive support! We were fortunate to come across AbleCommerce, the leading e-commerce provider for 10 years starting out in the Cold Fusion arena and moving their mature e-commerce technology to ASP.NET -- and they did it right!

Review the resources available and try AbleCommerce FREE for 30 days. Source code editions available! Want to purchase - see the coupons below and save now! Hurry though, coupons expire March 31st!!!

▪ Shameless Plug: siteDirector .NET (HTTP 404 Redirector)

Any and every web site receives HTTP 404 errors, either from resources that no longer exist or from mistyped URL's. Take control of 404 errors and ensure any attempt to visit your site results in a found web page. siteDirector .NET is an award winning ASP.NET application that integrates directly with IIS 5.x or later allowing any Windows hosted web site, whether PHP, ASP, HTM, ASPX, you name it - handle 404 errors gracefully redirecting to valid resources.

siteDirector .NET is completely self-contained requiring no external databases and maintains redirect tables in memory for instant redirects. The self-contained redirect engine takes advantage of wildcards and tokens to ease configuration and target resources with simplicity. Handle multiple bound domains to a single IIS web site as well with no ISAPI tricks or hungry resources - siteDirector .NET is magic in itself. Try out siteDirector .NET FREE with no time limits - redirects are disabled until registered which is as simple as adding the serial number. Use siteDirector .NET to see your 404 error rate and requested resources and boost your ratings in search engines eliminating all failed requests! siteDirector .NET will also send batch e-mails (optional) keeping webmaster's well informed of 404 activity and rest comfortably knowing visitors are staying instead of leaving!
