For example, one way an online business can benefit fromrepparttar 143689 right web host pack is throughrepparttar 143690 use of domain names. Some web hosts offer free domain names and forrepparttar 143691 blossoming online business,repparttar 143692 right name is often very important.

Remember that domain names are unique - no two web sites can haverepparttar 143693 same name (orrepparttar 143694 same address).

Security is another feature offered by web hosting companies and another example of how an online business can benefit fromrepparttar 143699 right web host pack. In today's climate, computer hackers, viruses and worms are simply a matter of fact.

After all, how hard would it be to regain trust if you had a major security breach?
