Hosting a website in-house
Posted on 2011-09-23
On a low budget and need to host an ASP.NET website. I currently have a dedicated hosted server that is quad core, raid 1, 4GB of Ram and etc and the cost os $329 month. I can easily beat those hardware specs in-house on our local business network and I can even dedicate a T1 to the server.
Question is...what is the difference between hosting with a provider, versus hosting in-house? Remove the obvious such as 24/7 monitoring, redundant power, etc. Is there a performance difference if the traffic load is marginal at best? The T1 is already being paid for and I already have servers that fit the needed specs.
Give me reasons why NOT to cancel my dedicated hosting and host in-house. I do bot want to make a mistake by doing this without first consulting.
