Coldfusion web hosting – An Overview

The wide array of benefits and uses that web developers get from Coldfusion web hosting cannot be described within a short space. Only a humble attempt can be made.
• Coldfusion web hosting brings interactivity and versatility to e-commerce sites.
• ColdFusion enables one to find site-oriented databases. It helps one in pulling up information from various other sources, just as Zip Codes are obtained from Post Offices.
• ColdFusion enables one to publish time-oriented content like event calendars or flight schedules and then automatically remove them.
• Creation and effective management of business reports and mailing lists have become convenient with ColdFusion as it adds functionality to the processes.
• ColdFusion also enables a website to offer its visitors dynamic menus and printable content.
• The “ColdFusion Markup Language” (CFML) enables web developers to enjoy the advantages of Java without going into Java’s inherent and complex technicalities, despite the fact that ColdFusion is created on none other than the Java platform. Thus, for using ColdFusion, one does not need to have the knowledge of Java scripting. Anyone who knows the fundamentals of web scripting can get a hang of CFML, the tag-oriented language similar to XML and HTML.
• Any web page that uses CFML can be read as well as interpreted by the server of the ColdFusion web hosting company[/size] as ColdFusion is a “server-side” language. A web page using CFML can be converted into a HTML page before it is transferred back to the browser of the user.

How to identify-
You can know that you are dealing with ColdFusion Markup Language or CFML, whenever you see .cfm as a web page extension in place of extensions like .asp or .htm. Coldfusion web hosting plans are high-priced compared to other kinds of hosting plans. One should look for Coldfusion web hosting providers only if the special kit of tools that ColdFusion comes with is relevant and necessary for the intended uses of his website.
Operating systems like Windows 2000/NT/2003 are usually supportive of Coldfusion web hosting. But support can also be found for ColdFusion on Sun and Linux servers.
