Web site hosting (internal vs. external)
Posted on 2006-07-05
Currently we host our corporate web site, without any issues. We are however expanding to other countries and with a new web site planned for later this year I wanted to get some pros and cons for hosting our own web site.
We currently have locations in the UK, Poland, Germany, Dubai, and India. The company is talking about opening offices in the far east and Russia, yes those languages will be supported on the site.
We currently have the connection and hardware in place to host the new site.
My thought is we have 2 options;
Continue to host the site
Have the site hosted by someone.
My main concerns are access from these remote countries, the web site must be accessiable to all.
