Since we’re in the business of not only web sites, but also critical line-of-business applications and major web app systems, we’ve had to become a bit of an expert when it comes to managing hosting the right way.
If you think a $5/year hosting account that’s “unlimited” can hold up to a successful web application, you’ve got another thing coming. Don’t get taken by that scam.
The truth is that high volumn, scalable, resiliant hosting systems cost real money and require a team that knows both hardware, network, and software to make it work for you.
We maintain our own hosting facility, dedicated to our web app and Umbraco clients. Over time, we’ve figured out the right way to do it.
Of cource, our clients can host their apps internally, or in other data centers, and we help them do that every day.
But, sometimes it’s nice to have just “one place to call” when you need help. I’m sure you’ve been there before!
