can provide powerful server hardware,
high speed connections and reliable
Most providers have very fast connections to the Internet
such as a full T3 fiber-optic (45 Megabytes per second)
connections which is about 1000 high speed (56 Kilobytes
per second) modems combined.
For those who are looking to set
up their own servers and host their own websites,
a personal computer is often not powerful enough to do
the job. As the name suggests, a personal computer can
hardly handle multiple visitors to your website- servers
are needed to handle these visitors simultaneously.
