Just be careful that the domain is registered to you and not your hosting company. Many people run into issues when they go to change hosts and they find out they no longer have access to their domain name. Generally it is a good idea to keep your hosting and domain seperate.also offers that give free domains, are those reliable
I've seen some Celeron Servers carry its share of the load as far as web hosting. All processors have thier own niche and work better for certain hosting needs.NevaCious said:The big problem these days is that there are a lot of new company's , selling let's say :
5 GB space for $10 , $10 for 5 Gb space is not profitable, unless they use Celeron servers.
Altrough If you use a host like that, you can be sure that they wont last a very long time ...
I have to agree with that, altrough it depends on where you locate your servers, our servers are located in Europe and if we sell 5 Gb for $10 a month ,then we will not make so much profit, this because we use 2x80Gb's hard disks in each of our servers to guarantee speed, one of these 2 hard disks is used for our daily backups, so we can only sell 80GB.goodydomains said:Just a thought: If you sell 5Gb at $10/month with a 120Gb drive at $160/month, running on a Pentium 4 HT 3.0Ghz processor, then you are actually profiting $80.00. Now, in terms of running a business that is not necessarily a great profit margin, however it is still a profit.
In addition, on average hosting clients will not use 5Gb of webspace. Some might say it is overselling to run a business on such a concept, but in actuality it is reality. This is why some very profitable companies can sell 10,000Mb space and 200Gb of bandwidth for $3.95/month and still be on the top of the industry.
Hope this helps.
Remember that you need to factor in the price of offering tech support, advertising and other business related costs.If you sell 5Gb at $10/month with a 120Gb drive at $160/month, running on a Pentium 4 HT 3.0Ghz processor, then you are actually profiting $80.00. Now, in terms of running a business that is not necessarily a great profit margin, however it is still a profit.
