We started Mosso because we knew there were web developers who wanted a reliable platform for their applications and email–without being the ones responsible for all the technology It’s not that we think the agencies and freelancers building The Web (sorry, The Web 20) are scared of a little hard work We just think to excel at innovating, you have to spend all your time doing innovative things (like graphics and coding) and none of your time worrying about web servers

And speaking of innovation, why weren’t the hosting companies stepping up to the plate? The only ones we could find were either asking developers to share a server crammed full of other sites or get their own servers or VPSes and figure out how to keep them online

Modern web applications require technologies like clustering, load-balancing, and SAN storage; the kinds of technologies large enterprise sites use to stay online When we couldn’t find anyone offering advanced technology like that at a reasonable price, we decided in our own stubbornness to figure out a way to do it ourselves Maybe it wasn’t an idea that would change the world, but it sure would make life a lot easier for people like us

Free Hosting

…Some ISPs offer free web hosting.

Free web hosting is best suited for small sites with low traffic, like personal sites. It is not recommended for high traffic or for real business. Technical support is often limited, and technical options are few.

Very often you cannot use your own domain name at a free site. You have to use a name provided by your host like http://www.freesite.com/users/~yoursite.htm. This is hard to type, hard to remember, and not very professional…

Dedicated Hosting

With dedicated hosting, your web site is hosted on a dedicated server.

Dedicated hosting is the most expensive option. This option is best suited for large web sites with high traffic, and web sites that use special software.

You should expect dedicated hosting to be very powerful and secure, with almost unlimited software solutions.
