Developing Cold Fusion Hosting

February 24th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Cold Fusion Hosting is all about databases, really. Cold Fusion, a software suite brought to us by the fine folks at Macromedia, which allows web-interactivity with databases. With Cold Fusion web hosting, you can now query, update, index, and chart databases from any web browser.

Cold Fusion hosting adds versatility and interactivity to ecommerce sites. Cold Fusion allows you to publish and then have automatically removed from your site time-sensitive content, such as flight schedules or event calendars. It adds functionality to creating and managing mailing lists and business reports. It allows you to offer your visitors printable content and customized menus.

Anytime you see .cfm as the extension on a web page, as opposed to .htm or .asp for example, you know you’re dealing with Cold Fusion Markup Language (CFML).

Though cold fusion is built on the Java platform, CFML allows web developers the benefits of Java without its inherent technical complexities. You need not know Java scripting in order to use cold fusion. CFML is a tag-based language quite similar to HTML and XML which makes it easy for anyone with even the most basic knowledge of web scripting to learn.

Cold Fusion is a server-side language which means that any web pages using CFML are read and interpreted by the Cold Fusion hosting company’s server and converted into an HTML page prior to being sent back to the user’s browser.

Cold Fusion web hosting can be significantly more expensive than other forms of web hosting, and should therefore only really be considered if its unique set of tools are relevant for your site’s intended uses. Cold Fusion hosting is usually run on Windows 2000/NT/2003 operating systems, though you can also find support for Cold Fusion hosting on Linux and Sun servers.

In addition to all the usual factors you must consider when choosing any web host – cost, disk space, bandwidth, uptime, scalability, support – you now also have to consider certain factors specific to cold fusion hosting, including: potential tag restrictions, additional security concerns, whether the cold fusion hosting company provides database support, and which version of Cold Fusion they’re using.

One type of tag restriction that is also a security concern is “high risk” tags, such as those that can be used to find and erase selected files from a server. For some larger businesses, this functionality is crucial to their operation, though potentially detrimental if accessed by the wrong hands, in which case a dedicated server is probably in order. Fortunately, cold fusion hosting is offered on shared, virtual, and dedicated servers.

Cold Fusion is well worth considering if you’d like the functionality of the Java platform with the facility of a comparatively autonomous and user-friendly software system. Especially if your website is expected to generate an income, you may find that the intimidating price tag, in the long run, turned out to be a bargain.

    Is it weird that I think alien greys are cute?
    I want one as a pet. I mean, I know they’re smarter then humans, so it should be the other way around, but they’re so cute! How can I get one?

    You have to be abducted first… then, when you’re on their craft, simply steal a brooding fetus container. They develop outside of the womb (evolution has made it impossible for female greys to carry a fetus to term – so after 2 wks gestation they surgically remove them and finish the process in their lab). Just break into the lab and steal a phase II fetus – it’s a container about the size of a can of soup. When you get back you’ll need to construct a power source for the fetus container – on board the ship they use a cold fusion reactor. Since we don’t have that, you’ll have to have the power company install a second 480v. service to your house or garage. There’s a wiring diagram on the side of the brooding container. Finally- you’ll need to have a full-size incubator ready – the fetus has to be transplanted either to a living human donor to finish gestation (Greys only take 4 months total -not 9, so that’s a good thing…. but the bad thing they kill their surrogate) or to a cow. Yes, a cow can carry a Grey to term. That’s why there is are so many cattle mutilations- when a bovine-gestated Grey is ready to be born, it simply kills and dismembers its host (that’s why you wouldn’t want to ask a good friend to carry it – get a cow instead). Grey "babies" are born more or less completely developed – only smaller than an adult. But they’re just as smart and do not need any further care from parents. They’re more like animals, born more-or-less ready to take care of themselves within a few hours of being born. So – you’ll need to contain either the human or cow surrogate in a reinforced and lead-shielded concrete building. The shielding needs to be at least 2" thick to prevent communication between the grey and the mother ship. From there – it’s +/- like dealing with any other alien lifeform. Best of luck.
