What are the advantages of having dedicated server?
The websites which Microsoft Windows NT or Internet Information Server [IIS] serves, is called Windows dedicated hosting. This is a server based on NT, and it comes pre-installed with operating systems like Microsoft Windows XP, or Windows Server 2003.
It is known for dynamic end-management, reliability, simplicity, and it also popular for integration of internet with the general business of an individual or a firm.
If you wish to use Microsoft FrontPage for building your web site or use ASP [Active Server Page], which is an exclusive Microsoft application, you should opt for Windows hosting only.
The hosting environment of your web site will be much better if you develop it by using Microsoft Index Server, .Net, or even Visual Basic scripts.
you could use MS-SQL which is compatible with various hosting environments.So inspite of using MS-Access you could use MS-SQL for windows.
