Is our Content Management Systems a Website Hosted Solution?
No, our Content Management Systems are not hosted applications or web hosting solutions. This is extremly important question. To further clarify, our website content management systems are not dependent upon RGB Interactive being the website hosting provider for your website. Some web site hosting services provide free, heavily discounted or higher than industry standard web hosting to include your website content management solution.
Here is a dead give-a-way, if a website content management solution is included with a cheap web hosting cost (i.e., less than $25/month), then 9/10 times the website content management solution is not transferrable if you leave your web hosting company!
There is nothing wrong with a receiving a hosted website content management solution as long as you are understand the impact (and options) that you will have to deal with later whether the content management system is easily transferrable or not to another website hosting provier. Additionally, if the website content management system is transferrable to a different web hosting company, it is extremely important to understand that not all web hosting providers may be able to support your pre-existing website content management system!
Hypothetically, if any web hosting provider has to pay for a subscription to support your existing content management solution, perform complex installations/configuration, and/or if the content management system is written in a proprietary website programming language, etc. then you are greatly decreasing web hosting options if you are transferring an existing content management system.
