The DotNetNuke community is composed of individuals and organizations that serve a wide range of needs for DotNetNuke users. Whether it is the skin designer, module developer or web hoster, every part of the DotNetNuke ecosystem helps make it easy for our users to take full advantage of the DotNetNuke platform to run their website. In this series of posts I’ll be focusing on the hosters in our community and looking at some capabilities that make each of them unique.
I recently came across a new hoster who has taken a unique approach to providing hosting services. Traditionally, if you were a web hosting company, you would purchase a bunch of servers and provision them in a data center. As virtualization technology matured, hosters began to shift their high end accounts from dedicated servers to virtual servers. With the advent of cloud services like Amazon EC2, some hosters are completely doing away with the capital costs of owning their own servers.
