Tips and Tactics for Getting Most From Your Account

  • Businesses or individuals with very large sites, or with very complex sites, may wish to employ a dedicated web host. Most hosts deal with several sites on a single server, while dedicated hosting means that a business rents a single server for its own use. This type of hosting is quite expensive, and managed hosting means that someone is there to look after the servers and fix things that go wrong. This is another added expense.
  • Web statistics and metrics are an invaluable asset to any webmaster or internet business owner. Before signing an agreement with an eCommerce hosting service, be sure that they offer a very advanced statistics package. Stats programs can tell you the number of unique visitors you had in a given time, which pages are more popular, and which links are getting the most traffic.
