    We are trying to decide on a hosting provider for a web site that will need .NEt support, SQL Server, streaming video, good proactive customer support, with good performance on a shared plan. Any recommendations?

    We'd like to host our site inhouse because the site will need access to data from an inhouse database. What are the possibilities in having access to inhouse data from a remote hosting site with excellent performance? Do customers who do e-commerce sites (Dell, etc) that require access to their inhouse warehouse management system just host in house or is it possible and common to still host a web application like this offsite?

    It's possible both ways... although from the sounds of it it might actually be better to host inhouse due to security reasons. This way your database server would be completely removed from all outside contact, and just remain on your local network. The downside to this is the security risk on the web server itself. Not to mention paying someone to update the server and keep it running. Windows based servers especially need to be checked for updated regularly since missing an update can most often result in a break in your security.

    Another possibility you might want to look into (although obviously I have no idea of how your business is set up) is hosting the database offsite as well as the web site.
