    Custom Components

    Do you install any custom component requested by client? eg: some asp components, etc.

    Have you ever rejected some requests? And under what circumstances will you reject?

    I would say it depends on each case. Server load would be my main concern in such a case. On the other side - I would not install all known components in the beginning either. Do research and ask others when a certain component is request.

    We install components if they are not going to affect other users and if they are not too time consuming to setup/maintain.

    If someone wants heavy customization we upgrade them to a dedicated server and then charge extra for configuration/installation of all the components they want.

    It would probably depend on the affect it would have on the server. If it was benificial to all the answer would quite probably be yes.

    I agree; it depends on what they plan to use it for and how it will affect server performance/security.

    If its a custom Component I would ask them to provide the source code first, you never know what they are up to.

    If its a windows dll for example if they have put some malacious code in there they could be purposely trying to open a backdoor into the server etc - highly unlikely I suppose but I still like to know exactly what I am installing.

    Also you could tell by the source code if its going to kill your server or not.

    We do not charge, but we also charge much higher than the going "WHT" rate for shared / reseller hosting.
