    CMS hosting
    Hello!
    The question is why I need "special" hosting if I use CMS (typo3, joomla etc.) ?
    If it's written on PHP why it is not enough to use simple PHP hosting with MySQL ?

    I hope it's ok to post my first post in this forum.
    I have desktop and server programming background but have not experience with restriction related to hosting.

    Thanks for advance

    I'm not sure what you mean by "special" hosting. Almost any hosting company you go with (dreamhost, bluehost, mediatemple, etc...), they are all going to be able to host a site run on PHP and MySQL.

    If you plan to drive large volumes of traffic to your site, you may need to get a dedicated server so that you aren't draining the resources on a shared hosting service.

    Hope that helps.

    Eric, first of all thank you for response.
    I'll try to explain meaning of "special".

    To say in another words:
    May I run CMS (Joomla, Drupal, etc.) on any hosing that offered PHP and MySQL?
    Or I need hosting that announce possibility of running CMS?

    Hello!

    It seems I found an answer for my question.
    Browsed hostgator's forum and understood that if my hosted-plan allowed PHP than I can install CMS by myself.

    It's nice to discover
