Decide the responsible ITler a company to seek at its own website in whole or in part, supported by a provider should, in principle first laid down the claims and be answered the question to what extent the welfare of the company on the smooth functioning of this web presence depends.

It provides you contact opportunities and support in this way with some customers could be already annoyed at the message that the page is temporarily unavailable. Critical business is a failure when it runs the real business: What would it cost Dell, for one day not to be accessed online?
Basically, there are several categories of web hosting that can be distinguished. The simplest form is called “shared hosting”, here the customers share a physical system. The web server is a virtual web server, the database file is in a shared database server process.
The possibilities of what the customers are able to do are usually limited to the import of scripts and data. The rest can only be done by the providers. Shared hosting often runs on mainframes, and it is intended only for very small applications and therefore more suitable for home users because it is interesting for the companies.
