Application hosting is increasing in popularity as more companies look to make their applications available to both customers, vendors and employees.But what is this?
Application hosting is also requires that the application be available everday so the choice of application hosting provider is critical as well. Unfortunately trying to find an application hosting provider that is qualified is difficult.
Most of the time we will be taken to companie's web hosting page. But don't be fooled. There are very important differences between hosting a web site and hosting a high level application.
This is very important that we get the application server configured correctly the first time. This configuration will determine how well the application performs, how easy it will be to increase the throughput, and how easy it will be to backup.
Our application hosting provider also must be familiar with our application or have the technical depth to be able to learn it quickly.
An application is much more dynamic than a web site, so our application hosting provider must be technically skilled.
There can be great importance to having an application available on the Internet, but only if our application hosting provider can properly configure and maintain it.
