I've refactored the page[1] again this time separated according to the 
type of hosting. There's no point talking about server optimisation to 
users who are on shared hosting. So I've split the content into multiple 
pages and grouped them according the hosting architecture.

Again, any feedback most welcome.

Cheers - Callum.
