whitehouse.gov runs on ASP.NET
I found some information about www.whitehouse.gov web site and it turns out that this site runs on ASP.NET.
Some interesting characteristics:
- web server is IIS 6.0,
- ASP.NET version is 2.0.50727,
- they use jQuery 1.2.6 but jQuery scripts are not hosted in Google global script hosting service,
- pages are GZIP compressed and they seem to use pretty high compression level,
- JPG files are highly compressed to make page load faster.
Here’s the screenshot of www.whitehouse.gov page that this posting is about.
