Inrepparttar same realm asrepparttar 117285 free web host,repparttar 117286 email address is also a free web email address. Where isrepparttar 117287 credibility?

With so many scams and crooks online, people simply do not trust their money with businesses that appear to be fly-by-night in their organization.

It is important to have statistics for your website. You should know how many people are coming to your website, how many pages they view, which pages they view, and how they found your website.

When you are hosting your site on a free web host, you will not usually have site statistics. As such, a few companies have sprung up to serverepparttar 117288 needs of people looking for site statistics. Extreme-dm.com is one such company.

Extreme-dm offers a paid package and a free package. Most new webmasters do not think too much aboutrepparttar 117289 catch ofrepparttar 117290 free package --- they are simply happy to have site statistics.

By usingrepparttar 117293 free version, you are permitting your competitors to come and look at your proprietary site tracking data!


As a follow-up to Lesson five, I want to share a nifty piece of information with you.

The Extreme-dm program offers their paid program for a monthly subscription. Their paid plan is on a sliding scale. The base package runs $5 per month and permits up to 10,000 page views. For most people this might be more than enough. Each additional 10,000 page views is another $3 per month.

Let us return once again to Lesson #3. How much money is "too much money" to invest in your own success?

Sure, it might only cost you $5 per month to hide your site statistics fromrepparttar 117294 prying eyes of your competition --- but how much money is "too much money"?

Then again, if you buy your own domain name and purchase web hosting, then you will discover that your web host will provide site statistics as part of your hosting package.
