Hosting and Domain Names For the Internet Marketer

Hosting and Domain Names For

the Internet Marketer

Your Hosting and Domain Names are your most important considerations
when you become an Internet Marketer.Hosting. You need your Hosting to be reliable and have all the bells and whistles that you require to enable to run your Internet business. You can find hosting packages all over the internet. Just type hosting providers into Google search and it will give you a large selection of providers to choose from. Before you choose one though you need to find one that will be most suitable for your business and your budget. As an internet marketer you need to look for providers that give you what you need at a price you are willing to pay. Free hosting is available but as an internet marketer you find that this kind of hosting is not suitable for your business. You need to get payed for hosting that  adhere to the following criteria:

  • Reliability. Your host must guarantee an up-time of 99.9%. You will not get 100% as some time or other the server will get problems like the rest of us. Nobody is perfect.

 

  • A cPanel Control Panel. This is the most popular control panel used by most Web Masters and Internet Marketers. It is a Linux-based server side graphic interface designed for the easy management of hosting your websites, email accts, SQL databases, scripts, FTP, web statistics, server status, and more. The cPanel has such a large following it is easy to find out how to use it with the extensive free information and videos you can find on the web.

 

  • Enough Storage . This is the amount of disk space you are allowed in your Hosting package. Enough storage depends on the amount of web pages, graphics, videos and downloads you upload to your web space. This can be considerable as content that includes a lot of graphics and videos as well as room for your sales pages, squeeze pages and downloadable products need to be accommodated. Unlimited is best to get if you are serious about your business.
  • Enough Bandwidth. Bandwidth is the amount of data that can be down-loaded from your web space. Every time someone visits your website, some of your bandwidth allowance is used. If you don’t have enough the hosting provider will either charge you more or restrict access to your site. And you don’t want that, so unlimited bandwidth is best.

 

  • Enough add-on domains. Add-on domains are required for any other sites, sales pages, squeeze pages that you require for each of the niches and products you want to promote. More is better.

 

  • Enough MySQL Databases. You will need these to run a lot of the scripts you will use in your Internet Marketing Business. More is better.

 

  • Support for PHP & CGI and Pearl. You will come across many scripts that are useful in your business that use these platforms so ensure that your host provides support for them.

 

  • Enough POP3 Accounts. These are the amount of email accounts you can have in your hosting accounts the more the merrier.

 

  • Good Support. This is important so you can get fast answers and help if you have any problems with your hosting, make sure they provide Phone & E-Mail Support.

 

  • Other things to look out for include. Cron Jobs, Fantastico Installer, Site Builder, Frontpage Extensions, Custom Error Pages, Custom DNS & MX and plenty of subdomains.

 

Domain Names

The Domain Name is the web address of your site / page that when typed in to a web browser takes you to that site. Choosing a memorable domain name (url) for your site will make it easier for people to remember especially if you use a catchy name.com url. I myself  get all my domain names from 1and1.co.uk whom I find very good and reasonably priced. The main reason though is that they automatically re-new my domain registrations automatically as and when they are due, this is excellent for me as I have a memory like a sieve  so I would probably end up losing them.
