SharePoint Host Named Site Collection Creator CodePlex Update

1 Comment

During the weekend, one of my CodePlex projects that SharePoint Administrators seem to love has received a major update by my colleague Joseph Passineau . For those of you that don’t know what the SharePoint Host Named Site Collection Creator is, here is a small definition from the site:

The SharePoint Host named Site Collection (HNSC) Creator is a Codeplex Project that allows SharePoint Admins to create HNSC via a GUI instead of PowerShell. This project has two ways to be used. One of them is a Windows Forms application that needs no installation, and the second one is a SharePoint 2013 farm solution that plugs in the Central Admin for a native SharePoint experience.

Here are some screenshots of the solution:
