Many businesses host their own server because they want to keep their data secure. They also have an IT department that can deal with things like server issues and issues with any software used by employees. In other words, there is an entire department devoted to nothing but the management of the data system at most companies. The staggering cost of IT departments almost makes you want to go back to using a filing cabinet. The good news is that you can do the same thing with application hosting services, only it costs a lot less and is far more convenient.
Application hosting services are services that deal with your desktop and applications so that you don’t have to worry. The data is secure, and transfer of any given data is encrypted, so you never have to worry about anyone gaining access to your information. The best part is that you can access your information from anywhere, and you never have to worry about the server being down. The company that hosts your applications is dedicated to doing just that. It’s not a one-man IT team trying to figure out what is wrong. It’s an entire company dedicated to serving you and other companies like yours.
If you and those designated by you can access all the information needed in real time, without the worry of dealing with software and server issues, the convenience alone is far better than having your own server. Add to that the lack of stress from dealing with unknown components, and you will realize just how badly you don’t need your own server; you need desktop hosting.
