HostingEnvironment Class

Provides application-management functions and application services to a managed application within its application domain. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace: System.Web.Hosting
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)
public sealed class HostingEnvironment : MarshalByRefObject
public final class HostingEnvironment extends MarshalByRefObject
public final class HostingEnvironment extends MarshalByRefObject
Not applicable.

Each managed application domain contains a static instance of the HostingEnvironment class, which provides access to application-management functions and application services.

The following code example is a Web page that displays the application information available from the HostingEnvironment object.

    appVPath.Text = HostingEnvironment.ApplicationVirtualPath;
    siteName.Text = HostingEnvironment.SiteName;
  }
