A few years ago it was almost prohibitive to have a site had to buy a server, to have a good internet connection, to work with a system administrator, then do site and to keep him.
Got problems like crazy: problems with hackers breaking into either Web server or on the spammer email me great without knowing. Server maintenance costs, current and internet were even lower. Pica internet stream, a piece of server, website and he's failed with costs.
Today, for most businesses, there are simple solutions: the site is on a server from a hosting company and the above problems disappear; remains just a hosting subscription.
The newest is called cloud hosting: that's not a specific server on the Internet, but a server farm that make a team; if one has problems, and take all of the other tasks.
Usually after costs; Yet a small cost is reduced to low quality.
What can go wrong? Insufficient bandwidth / low performance server and slow loading website: it can about eight seconds to attract the visitor's attention after the site has loaded; if you already heavy load, it is possible that visitors do not even see it.
The web (pages), mail server, contact forms, file server; you can add more database clients (automatically generated formalarele contact), blog, email campaign system. For online shops have added: systems coupons, online payment management products.
An important element is the ease with which manage website: even a layman would be easy to understand (or have access to materials) through which to handle it alone. Do you want to update a page, it should be easy.
