What Is Application Hosting?

Application Hosting

What is application hosting? Is application hosting right for you or your company? These two questions are asked by many. By definition, application hosting is a type of internet-based hosting service that allows individuals and organizations the ability to access their own data and programs via the World Wide Web. If you have a connection to the internet, you have the ability to access your programs and data.

Many small to mid-sized companies are looking into application hosting for the versatility and benefits that are provided. One of the main benefits of choosing an application hosting service to handle your software needs is the reduced IT cost. The need to upgrade servers or workstations lessens due to the fact that the service is provided to you over the internet. How many of you fight with your tape drive or forget to backup your data? Let the application hosting company provide you this service. Rest comfortably knowing that your data is secure, protected and backed up nightly. Are you tired of installing updates to the software? Once again, the application hosting company will keep your software updated automatically.
If the reasons listed above do not have you at least interested in application hosting, the ability to access your data from work, home or even on vacation might just be the icing on the cake. If you have internet capabilities, you can access your data or programs 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. If you want to be less involved in your facility’s IT maintenance, software updates and day-to-day data backups and and be able to focus, instead, on your regular daily job tasks then application hosting might be right for you.
