Software developers build applications, websites, web shops and platforms for their clients. For these applications and web shops, a hosting solution is needed as well. Software developers often use a (managed) hosting provider to host these applications, their clients becoming direct customers of the hosting provider. To the client, however, it’s not always clear for which issues they need to contact the developer and which the hosting provider. Often, these clients would prefer a one-stop-shop for both application development and hosting of the platform. Having a single point of contact is much easier for customers. They don’t have to worry about contacting the right party in case of trouble with their application. Whether it’s a software or hosting problem, they can contact the same organization in order to solve it.
If a software developer has the technical expertise to manage their own hosting platform, they may decide to create and offer their own hosting solutions for their clients. This has four additional advantages:
