Dedicated server

Sometimes you spend more time on infrastructure than front end. The Datawise Computing web sites are a case in point. Having identified a requirement for dedicated server hosting has led to all sorts of fun and games.

Now I have been introduced to the joys of DNS servers and look forward to the prospect of manually uploading all the web sites on the new server.

There are some positives. Along with the greater complication comes greater control: the ability to install and run our own SQL Server and install any extra components required for specific web sites. So far only has gone over. Once I am 100% sure of this I will move all the other sites over. We should see better performance as well as greater control.
