WCF has been out for a while now, but I just found an interesting article (circa March 2007, revised May 2007) which talks about all of the options for hosting or supporting your service using:

  1. Self-hosting
  2. IIS as a Host
  3. Windows Service (aka., NT Service)

They took the time (via sample code) to give you everything that you need to get up and running with WCF from a hosting perspective and the examples come from the Pro WCF: Piratical Microsoft SOA Implementation, which is a pretty descent book.
