Just one initial alarm bell (out of several) that rang for me - I was working a year or so ago with a client who was running Server2008; that OS doesn't support TLS1.2 and as a result, very few browsers can talk to his server any more over HTTPS. Support for TLS1.0 (and 1.1?) was pulled from Chrome, for instance, many months ago. At the same time browsers, and AV systems etc, are flagging sites that don't support HTTPS so his clients (businesses, not even the general public) couldn't reach his site. For various reasons I won't go into here, the client couldn't upgrade. A workaround I made clear was a short-term kludge was to point his domain at one of my servers, and run a proxy server on that using plain HTTP to his aging server. Clients happy, communications restored. (Needless to say, it's still up and running now and no news on any move away from that setup).

In summary, you may find that Windows Server 2008 is not a viable system to run a website on in 2021.

Straw Poll

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
