If you need the ability to access your remote software from any web browser at any time, hosting is an option for you. When you host your QuickBooks, you are taking a desktop software and putting it on the hosting company’s server. You’ll access your software thorough a small application on your computer, or a web browser.. Hosting gives you automatic backups, password protection, and off-site storage of your data to help prevent the likelihood of data loss. The Wren Group has relationships with a couple of different hosting companies and can recommend the right one for your hosting needs.
