What is a remotely hosted application?
A remotely hosted application is an application that is hosted on a server other that your own. A remotely hosted application should have the look and feel of your own web site and most users won't even know they have been moved to a different server. Upon termination of the application, the user is returned to the originating web site.

 

Why would I want to utilize a remotely hosted application?
Remotely hosted applications can be difficult to install and maintain. They often require recources (both human and technical) that can be expensive to train and purchase. They often require server capabilities that may not be available with your current hosting service. By utilizing remotely hosted applications you can:
  • Save time by having applications installed by experts trained and experienced in complex installations.
  • Reduce cost by having the application installed quickly and correctly the first time without the burden of hiring resouces to do thejob on site.
  • Increase the capablilites of our web site without the cost, time and expense of moving your entire site to new server.
