Decoding Web Hosting Reviews Part I Asp To Frontpage



Web hosts come under many names: ASP Hosting, Cold Fusion Hosting, Java Hosting, PHP Hosting; and​ as​ such, so must web hosting reviews. When scouring the​ various web hosting reviews in​ print and​ on the​ internet to​ help find the​ web host that most addresses your specific and​ unique needs, you’ll come across many of​ these “names”, these specialized types of​ web hosting products. Many of​ them you may not need, but the​ one or​ two that you do, you may need a​ lot. Knowing which types of​ hosting products you require most will help you review web hosting reviews with a​ keener (and therefore more efficient, effective, and​ economical) eye.

If the​ web hosting review mentions ASP Hosting, it’s referring to​ Active Server Pages, a​ technology that resolves a​ problem HTML-users have in​ getting their web pages to​ appear exactly as​ they intend them to​ appear on every visitor’s computer. ASP uses something called “server-side scripting” to​ enable you to​ create uniform web pages regardless of​ the​ web browser your visitors are using.

If the​ web hosting review mentions Colocation Hosting, it​ means that you would actually own the​ hardware the​ datacenter uses to​ run your website. With colocation hosting, you physically purchase a​ server and​ bring it​ to​ the​ datacenter and​ install it​ and​ maintain it​ yourself. for​ less cost than a​ dedicated server, you get the​ benefits of​ a​ datacenter (connectivity, environmental regulation, security, uninterruptible power) while maintaining 100% control over what your server does and​ does not do. the​ caveat: anything you want done, you’ve got to​ do yourself. Colocation hosting is​ a​ DIY (do-it-yourself) situation.

If the​ web hosting review mentions Cold Fusion Hosting, it​ refers to​ database software developed by Macromedia, the​ same team who brought us Flash and​ Shockwave. Cold fusion allows web interactivity with your databases, meaning that you can query, index, update, and​ chart your databases all from your web browser.

If the​ web hosting review mentions FrontPage Hosting it​ means you get support and​ -- most importantly -- server extensions for​ using Microsoft FrontPage software to​ create your website. FrontPage lets you create dynamic and​ interactive websites that you can’t achieve with HTML alone. a​ FrontPage host (and only a​ FrontPage host) has FrontPage server extensions enabled, which allows you to​ bypass using an​ intermediary FTP client in​ order to​ publish your site. FrontPage server extensions give you the​ power to​ include hit counters, forms, discussion forums, and​ search functionality in​ your website, as​ well as​ empowering you with multi-user authoring, and​ remote authoring and​ administration for​ better managing your site.

Keep in​ mind: a​ single web hosting provider may very well offer many of​ these hosting services, and​ quite likely many others not mentioned here. Check the​ web hosting reviews you read very carefully to​ find out which hosting services each web host offers.
