The article informs that the Royal institution of Chartered Surveyors, Great Britain, has revamped its website to provide customized content to members, bringing a previously hosted Linux site onto in-house Windows servers. Richard Carlson, head of business systems at the institution, said the decision to move the servers back in-house was a difficult one. But it worked out cheaper to install a new network link for the site and run the servers internally. Carlson added that as bandwidth prices come down in price running the website in-house becomes more attractive. The site is built using Microsoft Internet Information Server 6.0 running on Windows 2003, Microsoft Commerce Server 2002 and Biztalk.
