Umbraco Hosting

When it comes to Umbraco hosting you have several options. The quickest and easiest option is to use the new server provided by Umbraco Cloud. Umbraco cloud is a good fit for most organisations. The alternative is to either use a dedicated, or, shared server.  This guide is targeting towards individuals and small businesses.  If you have an enterprise-level organisation with complex needs, API’s, load balancers etc.. my best advice would be to speak to an expert.  After a certain size, there really isn’t a one size fits all solutions.  If on the other hand, you want to create a simple 10-50 page website which is mainly content based, then this page will be useful for you.

If you are new to Umbraco and hosting.NET website then I would strongly recommend getting a cloud license.  A traditional hosting plan takes the time to set-up, requires a certain level of knowledge about servers and also doesn’t scale well for the future.

Shared hosting can be fairly cheap and can start from as little as $15.00 a month, while dedicated box can cost hundreds.  Companies like Rackspace charge a premium for these services, so it really all depends on your budget, importance of your brand and how to mature your company is to determine what sort of hosting will meet your businesses needs.   Going with a shared, or, dedicated server also means you won’t GIT integration out of the box, or, automatic upgrades etc..  so in most situations, you’ll be paying more to get a worse experience.  If you are deadset on getting traditional hosting, then it will definitely work, it will just involve a little bit more effort.  The following articles can help:
