I have process which continuously downloads XML from the feed and saves it to DB. I have a Windows Shared Hosting.

My question is what should I use..WCF or Windows Service or Web Service.

I cant use ASP.net because it will run on call only...but I need it run 24/7. Can you guyz suggest me how to design it?

I have written a Windows Service but was unable to run it on the Server.

My hosting provider is asphostportal.com

Re: Windows Service on Shared Windows Hosting


Don't know if my answer will help you but I'll do my best.

Here is what I found about how to create and install Windows Services: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/zt39148a(v=vs.110).aspx

According to what I was able to find about your Windows Shared Hosting plan (http://asphostportal.com/Windows-Shared-Hosting-Plans). You should be able to use WCF Service.

Feel free to ask if you need more details.
