Question by atif_afsar: Hosting business critical applications and Web site?

Our main problem is that we want to host all our business critical applications for our clients online and in-house but we really do not know where to start from. Since some of our applications are business critical, we do not want to rely on the ISP. What we want is the complete control on our applications and database. Could anyone please help us.

If you are physically close to a telephone exchange, that may not be too hard!
