Most web site hosting services like one you're probably using right now, provide you with space on which you can host your web site. These mediocre web site hosting companies will even help you set up your own email addresses and provide you with ability to run your own scripts and programs.
Some of better ones out here will even let you use a nice Eye Candy control panel to help you manage your site. If your lucky they'll even throw in a website statistics app as well. For most web site hosting companies that's about it! Most web site hosting services won't bother giving you more service for you money.
To be honest most people (me included) always thought this was okay until we woke up and realized that there's a lot more to running a internet business than simply hosting our site.
I quickly realized there are some new companies out there that offer way, way more than other companies. Some of these web site hosting services are really raising bar several notches for all web site hosting services on internet.
In this short summary you’ll find some of features you need to be looking out for if you’re looking for a new web site hosting service or planning to transfer your web site.
You need to be on look out fore:
1) A web site hosting service that helps you add new domains for a small fee without having to pay any additional monthly fee. So you can host many domains and still pay one monthly fee, thus saving you money.
2) A web site hosting service that will help you publish and manage your own newsletter so that you can regularly follow-up with your prospects and customers and thereby increase your sales. Look if they give you option to publish a newsletter in both HTML and text format.
3) A web site hosting service that can set up an unlimited number of follow-up auto responders. So you can automatically follow-up with your prospects and send them a series of emails one after other on any day you prefer.
4) A web site hosting service that helps you personalize all your newsletters and follow-up emails. So you can let all your newsletters and emails begin with something like "Hi Paul" or “Hi Peter”. Most people know that personalizing emails has proven to increase response rates by as much as 40% - 50% in some cases. Prospects love it when they receive mails like this!
