Free or Paid Web Hosting - It's Your Choice


There are thousands of web hosting companies whether it is paid or free .  It is solely your choice of choosing one, but depends on the type of website you are planning to launch .  All the hosting companies have different kind of plans .

A free website hosting plan will be appropriate if you are planning a small personal homepage .  It is more dedicated to family and friends which includes a few pages .  This is a place if you are starting and won't be ready to invest much yet .  Free hosting will give you the freedom to test your skill, to see what does or does not work in your site .  This is like a test ground for you .

There are a few things that you need to consider before taking the free web hosting plan .  In your website the provider will display banner advertising served by them .  This is where the company earns its revenue from and you and you are not allowed to disable this banner advertising .  It could be an eyesore for some .  If you are looking for opportunity to design your own website, you will have limited designs and layout .  The free website companies will also often have downtime because of the heavy amount of traffic and activity taking place .

In another hand, if you are planning on using your website for business purposes, it is highly recommended to invest in paid web hosting service .  It gives you credibility as you host your own domain name .  It also allows you to have your own email address so that you need not use another company like Google or Yahoo for example .  Having your own email address is an important sign that a person or company is serious about their presence in the internet world .  Another benefit of having paid website hosting is that you can easily transfer your domain name from one hosting provider to another, without losing your followers in case you decided to change the web hosting provider .

One of the most very important features with paid hosting is, it provides 24/7 support, toll free contact number, online chat or email .  They are committed to provide you the best customer support .  As having a website needs constant monitoring and in case you are having problem, you are able to get fast and best support from them .

The only problem of paid web hosting is the cost .  Since money is involved, it is your responsibility to find a reliable and trustworthy host .  There are a lot of people getting scammed by unreliable web hosting companies .  Make sure you do your research before sending any money to a hosting company .

Although we are already in the middle of 2010, we can still 'predict' for 2010 .  What can be expected and how will it affect You as a (future) web shop owner?

1 .  Drastically increasing and accelerating communication .  Our world is becoming faster and faster, the same is even more true for the online world .  As customers use newer and quicker communication tools and they get used to their speed (let's think about the communication on Twitter or in e-mail compared to the trends 10 years ago), they also have higher expectations from the companies they do their shopping at .  The importance of customer service will increase incredibly in the future and call centres will be replaced by a kind of experience centre .  These centres will be the collection of communication tools that ensures two-way communication with the customers through many channels and in real time .

2 .  Increasing usage of Social Media .  Companies have realised how they can earn money with the help of Twitter and Facebook .  However, I think the importance of these Social Media are not the same as people think .  The customers register for Facebook, Twitter and other Web 2 . 0 tools to connect with each other and not to go shopping - and they do not like to be pressed all the time by purchase offers .  The only thing the seller should do is to listen to their communication and answer it .  It should be built into their communication tools .  Social Media is rather used as a customer service channel for successful companies and they use it to build brands and communities - of course sometimes a few sales type messages might appear .

3 .  Without personality business becomes more difficult .  Whether we like it or not, expectations for e-retailers are increasing and they are considered not only as the supplier of products but as partners who solve problems and can be trusted .  The more the competition grows among web shops, the more it is necessary to distinguish ourselves from the others .  We have to take on a sympathetic identity that the customers like .  That is why those who have a 'one among many' type plain web shop will face difficulties .

4 .  The increasing role of returning customers .  It is a basic marketing fact that the value of a customer is not equal to the value of its first purchase .  The more times the customer comes back to purchase, the more valuable they are for us .  As online markets are becoming saturated, gaining profit on the first purchase is becoming more and more difficult .  If the first purchase is not profitable, the secret of long term earnings are the returning customers .  Nowadays, we cannot let these customers leave us easily .  Customer satisfaction based on quality and relevant communication, and quick and efficient service are key issues .  Social Media can offer help in these .  The marketing, logistics and customer service departments have to work together for efficient results .

5 .  Automation is not an option any more .  E-retailers are not in an easy situation: their tasks are always increasing .  If we do not want to overload ourselves with work and we would like to have some free time as well, then the only option remaining is automation .  This does not only mean the business procedures but everything in the communication as well .  Unfortunately, the new two-way communication tools do not enable complete automation for us but it is better to automate what can be automated .  Otherwise the task load will increase exponentially and we will be sat there wondering what we have done wrong .

Hello FarmVille fan! Since you're reading this, I assume that you're dead serious about improving your FarmVille skills and are looking to improve your performance .  That is great, and I am sure that you're on the right track by reading this article .

I've heard people say that FarmVille is a simple game to play, and my answer is 'yes', but only at the beginner level .  However, if you want to join the ranks of the big boys and girls, then it's not very simple at all .  You will need all the insights, tips, tricks, techniques and secrets that you can muster in order to excel at the FarmVille game .

I have written down the following FarmVille secrets that you should start with .  I have much more .  If you like the following secrets, then I invite you to visit my FarmVille website by clicking the link at the bottom of this page .

FarmVille Secret Number 1: Identify and Get the Best FarmVille Crops

You can get, plant and harvest many crops in FarmVille .  However, not every crop is the same .  To get the best bang for your buck, you need to know which crops are the best and how to get them .  To determine which crops are the best, you have to keep the following parameters:

The seed cost of the FarmVille crop (e . g .  85 coins for grapes vs 220 coins for asparagus)
The selling price (e . g .  381 coins for peas vs 173 coins for tomatoes)
The time it takes for the crop to be ready (from seeding time to harvest time, e . g .  1 hour for grapes, vs 16 hours for asparagus)
The XP per crop (e . g .  1 XP for tomatoes and sugar canes, 2 XP for asparagus and grapes, and 3 XP for peas)


After taking all these factors into consideration, we calculated that you get the most bang for your buck for crops in the following order (best to least profit):

Peas
Asparagus
Grapes
Sugar Cane
Tomatoes

Keep in mind that you may need to pay for plowing your crops, so your profit will go down for crops that grow faster such as grapes and peas, as compared to slower growing crops like asparagus .

Also, some crops cannot be grown until you reach at least Level 19 in FarmVille .  Also, days are only twenty three hours long in FarmVille, so your day will not exactly correspond to the FarmVille day .  You have to keep this in mind to judge exactly when you need to be online and when you can be able to plow new spaces to set up new plots .

FarmVille Secret Number 2: Identify and Get the Best FarmVille Trees

Trees take a long time between planting and harvest time, so you will not earn much by growing them .  However, they have a particular advantage that smaller crops don't have: they do not wither .  Also, they do not need plowing, and do not need replanting .

Olive trees, date trees, banana trees and pomegranate trees can be acquired as a gift, while it costs 27 FarmVille cash to plant an Acai tree .  The income varies, with 69 coins for date trees versus 158 coins for Acai trees .  Also, it only takes 2 days to harvest acai berry versus 5 days for pomegranates .

FarmVille Secret Number 3: Hitting the Ground Running in FarmVille

A lot of players new to FarmVille find it very difficult to get started .  They find FarmVille daunting because it takes money, time and a lot of concentration to get started in FarmVille .  Using the following trick it should be easier to start so that you can start growing crops fast and move along faster in FarmVille .

The first thing you should ask yourself is how often do you log into the game, and for how long .  These are completely different, and both of these aspects will help decide which crops you should grow and what techniques you should use .

When you start playing FarmVille, you are assigned 6 square plots, two that are half grown, and two with eggplants and strawberries .  You are also given 200 coins .  After you harvest the first crops, you will end up with 323 coins .

This trick will help you swap coins for XP so you'll not have any leftover land, and will also help those who are at a high level but don't have enough plots to work with .

Start with 10 or 11 plots of land that are either plowed or fallow .  Whatever you do, make sure you start with this amount of land .
Calculate how much money you will need to plant whatever you want to harvest (see secrets one and two) .
Plow all your 10 or 11 plots - You will need exactly 150 coins to plow the land .
Buy SOYBEANS to plant and plant them in all the 10 plots .  You will need another 150 coins to plant the soybeans .
By just planting and plowing, you just earned 30 points .
After planting the soybeans, delete the plots with your delete tool .
Now you will be able to start all over again .
Repeat this all over again multiple times .
This allows you to get nearly unlimited XP for the cost of only 10 coins per XP while not doing anything on your farm .
After repeating this multiple times, plant something of actual value (see secrets one and two above), and shut down your computer
The next day, you can harvest this crop to get more coins and enough to continue using this XP trick .


Good luck using these FarmVille secrets .
