AppHarbor .NET Hosting and Mercurial

AppHarbor offers free .NET hosting for small projects, just what some people need in order to deploy their hobby application, low-traffic site, a prototype, or something along those lines and have it available "out there".

Out of the box, AppHarbor works with Git as the code versioning system and makes it really easy and convenient to deploy your site by just pushing the source code. While this could prompt Mercurial users to try fiddling with hg-git, there is a better way. Mercurial is supported by using BitBucket as the code hosting provider.

Check AppHarbor instructions on how to link everything together - here, while instructions on how to do it via hg-git are here.
