What is the difference between web design and web maintenance?

Web design is the actual creation of the initial web site. Web maintenance is the updating and changing of content on that site. The web design contract is separate from the web maintenance or webmaster agreement. As stated on R & R Web Design’s pricing page, minimal changes to a website will not be assessed. For example, if your e-mail address changes and you want it corrected on the web page, you will not be charged. Simply e-mail your request. However, if you expect your site to change frequently, a web maintenance agreement is highly recommended.

What are the benefits of using VPS Hosting?

What are the advantages of a dedicated server?

Compared to shared hosting (that is, a website located on a server shared between lots of other websites) the main advantage is that you get complete access to all the resources of the hardware. No other website can cause your server to run slowly or run out of memory because you get exclusive access to the physical machine. You also get complete control of all the software installed, including the Operating System. In addition, dedicated servers are usually much more secure than shared hosting because there are no other customers on the same physical hardware.
