Web Hosting solutions for the credit crunch

Wednesday 25 February 2009


The credit crunch is here to stay, for the next year at least, so its time to start tightening belts and stretching the pennies to last that little bit longer. Lots of places are giving more information on how to keep the wallet heavier and so here is some information on web hosting that may help you through these times.

Designing your website is something that you may not think will matter on the cost of your site, but it matters more than you may think. Designing a website that uses PHP, ASP, MySQL, MSSQL and other dynamic generating scripting languages help create nice websites, but you need to pay for these languages to be installed on the server. As a hosting company it takes much longer for us to manage and maintain a server that deals with multiple scripting languages. Therefore if you designed your site using static HTML, with some AJAX/jQuery can give both a great website with the added benefit of being able to go for a hosting package that doesn’t come with all the bells and whistles.

Do you need a dedicated server at the moment? If you designed your site to use lower resources and fewer technologies then your server doesn’t need to be as powerful so a Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS) will give you the same benefits of a dedicated server but with less cost.

That is not to say that all sites will be capable of being cut down as some sites depend on dynamic content such as e-Shops, so its always best to discuss with CWCS Managed Hosting what package would be best for you to develop your website on, and did you know that CWCS Managed Hosting can even help script and design your websites?
