I'd like to get some of your thoughts on remote hosting versus hosting web applications yourself with your own server. Our company has been developing web applications for 9 years and have always hosted these sites on our own server(s). However, we cannot
guarantee 24/7 uptime on these sites, and recently we had a few occasions where our provider was down for a brief period and also had a few "page cannot be displayed" (404) errors. Though rare, these few occurances have prompted clients to express concern
and ask for possible alternatives.
I'd like to know what some of you think are the advantages and disadvantages of hosting your sites with a dedicated hosting company. For those of you who have used remote hosting, were there any issues with deploying your apps, managing databases, admin
of IIS, etc. Your input would be greatly appreciated.
