I am a newbie in web hosting and web server. My situation: I am going to develop a web application for my company. The web application can be accessed by the employees in office or outside office and registered customers. For employees, they use the system for their daily works such as record new orders from customer, material used, price, workers assigned for the orders. Then the system will process the data and show the necessary output. For customers, they will place orders using the system and then emails would be sent to the customers. For your infomation, I will use WampServer to build the system. The OS is Windows Server 2003 or 2008. My company want to host the system itself. My problems: What is the best and right way to host my web application? Using Internet or Intranet with VPN? What server should I use? How to setup a server? Thanks.

I think he's talking about an Apache server -- Wamp?? (window/apache/mysql/ and some p) ?

If you're already using A M & P why not use linux too - PHP (for one) works much better in linux than windows. Just grab an Ubuntu install & use that. You can install it right from the package manager, no hunting for win32 apache binaries.

Unencrypted or VPN is up to you - how secure do you need it to be? What about just an SSL cert?

If I were you, I might look at some open source CRM solutions - rolling a custom solution like what you describe sounds difficult & time consuming.

SugarCRM is the the best open source CRM solution I've seen, the community edition is free. There's a demo over here: (just hit login)

But, if you're using a WAMP server, you might as well just use IIS and then you can fully state that you are running a WIMPy server. (haha)
