You may have seen TV or online ads offering “COMPLETE BUSINESS WEB HOSTING FOR JUST $4.99 A MONTH!” or something similar, and you probably said to yourself, “That can’t be for real.” Well, it is – sort of. But a $4.99 introductory hosting package isn’t going to be suitable for most modern businesses. What you probably need is an SSD VPS: a virtual private server (known as a VPS) which will cost a little more than the ad promises, particularly if it has modern solid-state (SSD) storage capacity.
There’s probably no debate which has lasted longer – or provided more heat than light – among computer geeks than Windows vs. Mac. The debate over the two prominent server operating systems, Linux and Windows, is much less heated, though; most unbiased observers will tell you that Linux is superior for a number of reasons.
