How to make ASP .NET Web Service work in a Shared Hosting?

Hello,

I am trying to put a basic Hello World Web Service in my Go Daddy Shared hosting.
It is a basic default Hello World Web Service that Visual Studio 2010
automatically generates: it works in my local web machine: i can invoke and can see the
xml.

I have transferred the Service1.asmx and the Service1.cs file( in the App_Code folder ).
I can view the web service page, but I cannot invoke the web service method, and as a result I cannot
see the xml file where the "Hello World" string will be in side the <string> element.

Please see screen shot ... We can see though we can see the web service page, there is no invoke button.

As the web page has suggested to change the name space, I have changed the namespace to my website address,
but still I cannot see or do an invocation and as a result cannot see the generated xml. My question is

1)  what should I do so that I can see the return xml value from the
web service?
2) what should I do so that I can render the data of the web service in a web page ( for example, in mywebservicepage.aspx)?

Please suggest. HowToSeeTheReturnedXmlOrDisplaycontentWebpage HowToSeeTheReturnedXmlOrDisplaycontentWebpage

public class Service1 : System.Web.Services.WebService
{
    public Service1 () {

        //Uncomment the following line if using designed components 
        //InitializeComponent(); 
    }

    [WebMethod]
    public string HelloWorld() {
        return "Hello World.................";
    }
    
}

Hello,

thank you for reading my problem statement. After I click the Hello World link, I go to a page that does not have an invoke button. Please observe the attached image.

I am not sure how to reference this web service in a .cs page so that I can render Hello World in an aspx
web page. Please give suggestions/advice so that I can fetch the data from the web service and can render it in an aspx page. For your information, I am my server is a shared hosting server at Go Daddy. HowToSeeTheReturnedXmlOrDisplaycontentWebpage

My apologies, I seen the screenshots and got them reversed in my mind

The remote testing of a webservice is a security risk and therefore is not allowed in the browser, but you can override that

You can also use a 3rd party tool to test it though.

Hello rq20,

thank you for trying to help. The problem has been fixed for over a week, and, sorry, as I am posting solution after so long. The correct solution is at Expert Exchange:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/.NET/Q_22084691.html

and the current answer id is:

By reading the answer, I put the service.asmx in my shared hosting at Godaddy's web folder and put the .cs file in App_Code folder. Then I created a new website and created .aspx file, did pre compilation, which generated dlls. Then I put the dlls in the Bin folder, and now I can see my service.asmx file and also the .aspx web page which accesses the web method from the web service.

As i solved the problem by doing internet Google research, I am going to choose my answer as correct answer.

This problem is now solved, and I am closing this problem.
