Let us give a great deal of thought to what you should expect from a Web server based on information from databases. Of course, the list does not contain all aims and it is rather general, so anyone can add his particular demands but let us try to sketch a minimum set of these requirements. Firstly, one usually begins with a small project, and then business starts to grow and the site is expected to grow along with it, so the first thing you would expect is scalability. Secondly, if you offer and show something to the world, it must work. Discontinuities in the presentation of your offer imply that nothing is being offered. After all, no freight means no money. It doesn’t matter if this is real money gathered for each site read, or each banner loaded, or if it is virtual, potential money, which you could gain by building your products brand. In general, you should expect your server to be accessible.
