Dream. Dare. Do – that is Suyati’s work principle in a nutshell.
To ensure that your Sitefinity website performs at its optimum best, you need to follow a few hosting settings. These settings could differ depending on the size of your production environment and other factors such as:
Points to be kept in mind while using the hosting services:
General recommendations irrespective of the hosting plan:
MS SQL Server 2008 R2
Recommendations for sites running on Sitefinity Standard Edition or higher
Sitefinity generally recommends a setup with two web servers in a load balanced environment in addition to a dedicated database server. These servers can be behind a firewall in the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) while access to the backend folder of Sitefinity can be made restrictive via the IP security settings.
A load balanced environment ensures that there is no single point of failure and hence it is imperative that the Sitefinity website runs on one. This will also ensure that the website has better scalability and performs well even during peak traffic.
There has to be sufficient network bandwidth for the SQL connection between the DMZ and LAN so that the servers are not slowed by the database requests between the two networks.
Sitefinity recommends storing the CMS website files and code base in a central location that is accessible from each web server.
