One of the big issues facing our industry is the pressure to go green. In
fairness I use the word "pressure" in the loose kind of way simply because in
actuality at the moment Green costs more and if something costs more
shareholders and company directors don't like it. In America up until
recently a company could actually get sued by shareholders are doing
something that could be seen as detrimental to the bottom line. That does
seem a bit harsh, and I'm glad that they now have changed it to enable
company directors and CEOs to make greener decisions that may affect profit
margins. However I think we're looking at the wrong question here, what we
should be looking for is the solution where going green doesn't cost more.

Cloud hosting has been creating quite a buzz lately as being the latest, and
some claim also the best type of web hosting around. It is quite different to
your usually hosting server and certainly requires a lot of skill to use.
Most of the time it cannot be run by a single person, but rather by a team of
people who can get the job done at a quicker pace. One of the most popular
websites in the world that uses cloud hosting is Google. Ever seen Google’s
website down? No. So there really must be some excellent points to cloud

Managed server hosting refers to a hosting company managing servers for its
clients and providing them with the tools and resources necessary to run
their businesses. Hosting companies employ full-time administrators that
maintain the servers – something that users would have found themselves or
people they had hired doing in their stead.

managed server hosting may in fact prove to be the most sensible decision for
some people - especially beginners that do not have a big budget to run their
server and t... (more)
