Host your SharePoint Extranet with Fpweb.net
What is an Extranet?:
An extranet is a computer network that requires authentication to access. It is typically used by businesses to provide access to company information for partners, vendors, customers, etc. by using a virtual private network (VPN) to send and receive data across public networks.
A SharePoint Extranet is a SharePoint farm or SharePoint sites where employees, partners, and customers can securely access shared data for collaboration and distribution.

Three Use Cases for Hosted SharePoint Extranets for Your Business
A very common scenario involves employees hosting their intranet in house while hosting their SharePoint extranet in the Cloud. This keeps private documents on premises while allowing for easier connectivity for partner and vendor access to the extranet.
Fully Hosted Model:
For the most advanced security and accessibility features, companies host their intranet and their SharePoint extranet in a private cloud. A one-way AD trust keeps your intranet and network resources hidden while allowing secure VPN access to your hosted extranet.
No Intranet Model:
It’s possible to host your SharePoint extranet in the Cloud without an intranet. Employees with no intranet typically use Active Directory in the Cloud and require a different set of credentials for security reasons.
