We addressed the hardware in earlier assignments. For this assignment, we will address software options available to build an e-commerce site. While hardware and software are a natural fit to make any web server run, the selection of each element is important and unique. Conduct research on these products: Apache, Internet Information Services (IIS), IBM HTTP Server, and Oracle HTTP Server. Search for the phrase “Comparison of web server software” and you will find a host of information to review. When reviewing the information, be sure to pay attention to the main elements of software packages such as Java Scripting, SSL, Licensing, and supported Operating Systems. During your research, also consider databases, which will house all of your business’s information. Review products such as Ingres, DB2, Oracle, or SQL Server.

Discuss how you will ensure that your site is secure. Make sure to address https, viruses, malware, and mobile user support.
