Decoding Web Hosting Reviews, Part I: Asp To Frontpage

Web s come under many names: ASP ing, Cold Fusion ing, , ing; and as such, so must web ing reviews. When scouring the various web ing reviews in print and on the to help find the web that most addresses your specific and unique needs, you’ll come across many of these “names”, these specialized types of web ing products. Many of them you may not need, but the one or two that you do, you may need a lot. Knowing which types of ing products you require most will help you review web ing reviews with a keener (and therefore more efficient, effective, and economical) eye.

If the web ing review mentions ASP ing, it’s referring to Active Server Pages, a technology that resolves a problem HTML-users have in getting their to appear exactly as they intend them to appear on every visitor’s computer. ASP uses something called “server-side scripting” to enable you to create uniform regardless of the web browser your visitors are using.

If the web ing review mentions Colocation ing, it means that you would actually own the hardware the datacenter uses to run your website. With colocation ing, you physically purchase a server and bring it to the datacenter and install it and maintain it yourself. For less cost than a dedicated server, you get the benefits of a datacenter (connectivity, environmental regulation, security, uninterruptible power) while maintaining 100% control over what your server does and does not do. The caveat: anything you want done, you’ve got to do yourself. Colocation ing is a DIY (do-it-yourself) situation.

If the web ing review mentions Cold Fusion ing, it refers to database software developed by Macromedia, the same team who brought us Flash and Shockwave. Cold fusion allows web interactivity with your databases, meaning that you can query, index, update, and chart your databases all from your web browser.

If the web ing review mentions FrontPage ing it means you get support and — most importantly — server extensions for using FrontPage software to create your website. FrontPage lets you create dynamic and interactive websites that you can’t achieve with HTML alone. A FrontPage (and only a FrontPage ) has FrontPage server extensions enabled, which allows you to bypass using an intermediary FTP client in order to push your site. FrontPage server extensions give you the power to include hit counters, forms, discussion forums, and search functionality in your website, as well as empowering you with multi-user authoring, and remote authoring and administration for better managing your site.

Keep in mind: a single may very well offer many of these ing services, and quite likely many others not mentioned here. Check the web ing reviews you read very carefully to find out which ing services each web offers.
