Where did dotProject Start?
Will Ezell started dotProject while he was still a part of dotmarekting, INC. It was originally used to replace Microsoft Project and uses a similar interface. The project started in 2000 and was move to Sourceforge in October of 2001.
DotProject didn’t really take off until a few years later when two of the most active developers were granted administrative access. Andrew Eddie and Adam Donnison helped to create the application, but moved on a few years later.
The program underwent major redevelopments in 2007 with the Zend Framework. This led to many changes and the dotProject available today. Regular updates are released, as well.
Finding the Best Hosting for dotProject
You don’t need a specific type of hosting to work with dotProject. However, you still want to make sure you choose the right type of hosting for this program. Since it’s a web-based application, the hosting you choose will act as the foundation, much like your computer acts as the foundation for all your programs.
With good hosting, you can run dotProject without any issues, but with less than adequate hosting, you could run into many different issues. Most beginners to hosting and to dotProject don’t realize they’ve chosen a bad hosting company until it’s too late.
So many of the hosting companies on the internet provide only shared hosting and they don’t provide very good support. However, they give you a massive discount for signing up for a multiple year package. This sounds great because you get very cheap hosting, but you’re also locked into the package for multiple years.
If you don’t know the company is a great hosting choice with excellent support, you don’t want to commit for more than a few months at a time. It’s better to pay a little more and test the company for a month or two before making the full commitment. Locking yourself into a contract with a company not capable of supporting your needs may lead to headaches and fighting to get your money back when you decide to switch hosting companies.
