New York--Jupiter Media Metrix Inc. said Wednesday that U.S. companies overestimate the advantages of maintaining their own Web servers. Those that do miss out on $6 million to $12 million in cost savings that could have been gained by 2003 if Web applications were delegated to an Internet service provider, the research company said.

That creates the risk of having to rebuild an application once an Internet hosting strategy is put in place.
