Hosting All The Way To The BankWritten by Claudette Spedden
Let's face it, Internet is here to stay. Today's Internet reminds me of California gold rush. There is a ton of moeny and opportunities to be made by everyone who wishes to participate in this modern day gold rush. Most people have been drawn to Internet, because of ability to leverage their time and make money even while they are sleeping. Which makes it an even better opportunity than gold rush!
Just like any offline business, an online business requires an address, or place on Internet where your Web site is located. You can't have a Web site and just "stick it up" on Internet. Unless you own your own server, you use a hosting company. A hosting company gives you an online address. This online address allows search engines and people seaching for your product or service ability to locate your website.
So what is all confusion about regarding hosting sites. Understanding a hosting provider's websites is equal to speaking a foreign language. They are full of numbers and letters and if you do not know what they are describing, it can be confusing and overwhelming. For example: there is 50 mg space, and 2 gig data transfer, and front page extensions, secure servers. What's it all mean?
In my humble opinion you don't have to be a brainiac to have a great hosting service that serves your needs. You want to be recognized expert in your particular field, and let hosting company do their job, by providing excellent hosting and service. All you need to have is a general knowledge about what hosting is.
Commercial Web Hosting - Business ConsiderationsWritten by Brian Thorn
There are many reasons why choosing right web host pack can be beneficial for your business. Most importantly, if you don't purchase a package that offers you all things you need to run a business online, you won't be able to attract and retain a faithful client base. For example, one way an online business can benefit from right web host pack is through use of domain names. Some web hosts offer free domain names and for blossoming online business, right name is often very important.
Remember that domain names are unique - no two web sites can have same name (or same address). If you have an idea for a great name for your domain and that name has not already been taken, you can register your name even before you are ready to set up your website. This process is called "parking" domain name and it ensures that name will be available when you are ready to start your website. Many web hosting providers include domain names as part of web host pack. Taking advantage of such an offer is one way an online business can benefit from right web host pack.
Security is another feature offered by web hosting companies and another example of how an online business can benefit from right web host pack. In today's climate, computer hackers, viruses and worms are simply a matter of fact. If an online business cannot assure customers that it's safe to enter personal information on company's website, there's likely to be few people who are willing to take chance. Especially when it comes to financial information - credit card numbers and bank account information - security is vital. People who routinely shop online are usually careful to note privacy policies and security systems in place before they order. While providing your own security is feasible, having a web host pack that includes a solid security system will help ensure that your company information and your clients' information is secure. After all, how hard would it be to regain trust if you had a major security breach?
