1. Web site
2. Web Builder engine
3. Choose Technology
In order to set up development project for web hosting, we should choose with cautious.
Currently, 95% website, using PHP technology to create website. Some choose, cause there is price sensitive. Free license. Many availability, include its free services. In Indonesia itself, i currently investigate all major web hosting services company, none could deliver non php hosting service in Indonesia. All indonesia based server is PHP. No ASP, .NET, or any other. You could have asp services if you use colocation service. Some vendor might provide asp web hosting services if you could pay for more than Rp 1 million a month. Price is negotiable, but not as cheap as php one. PHP server based in Indonesia could be have for about Rp 200.000 up to 500.000 per year. You could find on competitive price on ISP services. Some major ISP provide hosting services, with premium price. You could talk to them if you want your site maintained professionally.
Due to Taiwan earthquake, there is major consideration whether to put server in local or in abroad. In local, there is major advantages in some sector, such as speed, support languange, etc. Mainly is on the speed factor. Disadvantages of local mainly on lower bandwidth and low disk space. Price on abroad site about Rp 480.000 per year compare to 80.000 on local. But off course, foreign based, you could have up to 2 GB vs 100 MB on that price. It's hard to have apple by apple comparison, but you could check on Google.
