Converting VB/SP application from "Localhost" to Hosted Web Server

Hi all - I have an old homegrown application written in Visual Basic & "traditional" ASP. I run it on my local Windows PC using IIS, thru a Browser, using one of those "http://...localhost..." links.
I want to move it to a Hosted Server (presumably needs to be a MS not Linux server?).
There is an Access DB.
Other than the logistics of moving the Access DB & files over, would this app run as is ... or should I expect programming changes or anything other surprises?

Localhost is just a binding for the loopback address 127.0.0.1. If you didn't hardcode ANY Directory paths you should be fine.

With that said,
   http://localhost
   http://machinename
   http://local.ip.addr

Are all the same and your app should work just as is. If it does, then you should be fine to move it anywhere.

cheers,
