Pricing for Hosting My Web Applications

The network, CPU, RAM, and storage resources needed to host a web application vary depending on the type of application and especially the number of potential simultaneous users. If you have no idea of the hardware resources required for your needs - GB of RAM, number of CPU cores, CPU frequency, GB of storage or network output bandwidth - no panic, hosting costs depend on criteria you can easily apprehend: number of simultaneous users, number of page served per day, access time to load a page of the application.

Each hosting solution includes backup management of your data. The backup system makes automatic rotating copies of your data: one backup per day kept for one week, then one copy per week kept for one month, and finally a monthly copy kept for six months. It performs backups without causing any interruption of your running application.
