Cold Fusion Hosting

Cold Fusion, one of the most powerful programming languages by Adobe, is fast becoming popular amongst webmasters. With Cold Fusion, you can create dynamic and interactive websites and applications. However, even though Cold Fusion is powerful, it's not always as popular as ASP or PHP so you won't find it in cheap or free webhosting services.

The good news is that even though it's not that popular, it doesn't mean that it's not widely available. If you're willing to spend money on your webhost , then check out's blog post about Cold Fusion Hosting and the things to consider when trying to find a Cold Fusion Web Host.

However, as mentioned on their blog, though Cold Fusion provides some powerful tools, some shared hosting services would limit some Cold Fusion tags so you even if you find a webhost that provides Cold Fusion hosting, you may not be able to make full use of the programming language. Try to ask and research whether that particular webhost limits the use of Cold Fusion so you won't be stuck with a webhosting plan that you have no use for.

Ultimately, it all boils down to whether Cold Fusion can provide you with everything that you need for your website or whether PHP or ASP could provide alternatives.
