I have been in the IT industry since 1995. I've had my hand in a variety of technologies as a developer, infrastructure specialist, and systems architect. Some of these include (but are not limited to):

  • IIS, Apache
  • SharePoint (2003, 2007, and 2010)
  • SQL Server
  • ColdFusion, Classic ASP, PHP
  • F5 Load Balancers
  • PowerShell
  • Visual Basic
  • ASP.Net (C#)
  • Mainframe technologies (COBOL, DB2, CICS) ...trying to forget these

I could go on...

I do not declare myself to be an authoritative expert on any of these and I don't carry any fancy certifications. I like finding ways to use technology to solve problems. Over the years I have used much from the open community. I am participating on the StackExchange sites as a way to give back to the community and to share many aspects of things I have learned over the years.

comment If my web application is under a server will it perform better than if it is under a shared hosting?
This is a good summary of the three basic types. I would also add that with shared hosting it might depend if the host is using a cluster of servers instead of just a single server (there are a few of those available). Performance can be quite good in that case. With VPS (or cloud) options, it might be worth mentioning Rackspace (rackspace.com/cloud). A cloud server can often scale up when load is heavier, thus giving you better performance. Disclaimer...I am not affiliated with Rackspace in any way.
