Auto Starting Web Sites with IIS 7.5


We work hard to make exciting and responsive web applications for our users who have come to expect a lot from modern websites. However, often the first user to hit our site has to pay the price for the site starting up for the first time. This happens after the site “goes to sleep” (from low traffic) or after the application pool recycles, among other reasons. In this demo, I’ll show you how easy it is to make sure this doesn’t happen. It’s pretty easy and your site’s visitors will be happy.
