    Hmm.. okay.. So ajax isn't something that would be affected by being on linux. It's a variation of javascript.

    If you can run javascript on your site then you can run ajax. It's as simple as that.

    I know it's a variation of Javascript. However, I'm only telling you exactly what I experienced while using Linux. All my non-AJAX Javascript code worked fine, but when it came to actually running AJAX code, that variant of Javascript wouldn't work at all.

    Now that I'm using Windows, not only does all my non-AJAX Javascript code run smoothly, but so does my AJAX code.

    It doesn't sound like you are using the windows hosting for pages, right? Seems like an odd choice for hosting if you are not going that route, but okay.

    Examples of how htaccess would have solved your problems:

    1 -> read up on htaccess basics

    2 -> adding file extensions.

    As for the webconfig typically you would set all that up in the IIS. Do you have access to that?

    I started out on Linux hosting, but quickly found that AJAX wasn't working, though Javascript generally was. I did some research, and from where I looked, I came to the conclusion that Linux hosting wasn't going to work for me anytime soon, as my site does use quite a bit of AJAX (for me, when logged into my blog). Linux, alongside my .htaccess file, actually worked fine up until the OS switch, and all went well till then in regards to URL requests.

    Now, however, I get AJAX support but at the cost of URL bugs (like I said in the previous sentence). If there's a way to get Linux hosting to support AJAX though, that'd be great, as I'm sure a free switch back to Linux with some .htaccess editing (and/or whatever else would be required) would be a lot smoother than trying to get this web.config file all written out from scratch. Addressing your provided links, if I'm to stay on Windows, shouldn't I be researching the web.config file, rather than the .htaccess file?

    Yes, I have access to IIS. In Godaddy, it can be found by:

    My Account > Web Hosting > Launch > Hosting Details > Tools > IIS Management

    Within IIS, there's one directory listed (Content Root), and it's check marked by default, with a status that reads "Setup."
