Building Website on a Server

By jamirussell ·

In general I understand a lot of technical stuff, however this is a very new thing for me and would appreciate some direction :)

Essentially, we currently run a small web based company, currently using a 3rd Party hosting website to run our ecommerce shop. But as we begin to grow we want to be able to bring development in house so we have more flexibility to create additional web pages and more further functionality above what we currently can do.

What we would like is below:
- some sort of server to hold anything required for website development, plus storage for any image and design files
- the ability for either a windows pc or an Apple Mac to load from and save to the server
- to have an oracle database link to and from a website through visual studio

Unfortunately I have no idea where to start in being able to set up/arrange this to the point at which I only need to worry about the website development. Would you be able to offer some technical advice about how to get to a solution?

Thanks in advance :)

Two hosting solutions

Congratulations you have been aware of the limitations of the shared web hosting and get around to considering the VPS hosting, which is also a good signal that your business has stepped into a new level.
Not sure about your site sizes and budget, so here are two solutions FYR:
- DO(DigitalOcean) server + VPSrobots panel
An economical hosting solution and a combo of business-class server instance plus Windows desktop-based control panel:
- Managed VPS hosting services:
Managed VPS hosting services taking care of all the details thus a little bit pricey:,2817,2455706,00.asp
Hope this helps.
