To get to where you want to go, you can take a Taxi, a Limousine, an Armoured Truck or a Private jet. It just depends on the value of what you’re taking, how you want to get there and what you can afford. The same applies for web hosting.

You know you can get a web site hosted for $20 a month or you can pay thousands of dollars a months. To host a web site for $20 a month the hosting provider uses a standardised shared environment, using a high volume low margin strategy, support costs are extra. .Offis provides customised, high performance, secure, complex infrastructure for web sites running mission critical applications;a high value, high touch strategy. In fact, we do that for customers like TabCorp’s mobile betting App, OzforEx’s exchange platform, Pepper Home Loan’s loan processing applications and Secure Parking’s payment processing just to name a few.

So, which one do you need?

If you only have the budget for $20 a month then the choice is easy but don’t risk putting any valuable data on the site or depend on it being up and available all the time, or being fast and responsive every minute of the day.
