Cpwebhosting.net that Host that Offers the Most.Whether you already have a website or are thinking of setting up shop online, sooner or later you'll have to deal with the issue of web hosting and that's were we come in. Although it may seem like a "no brainer," there are actually many factors you'll need to consider before making this important decision. Your first inclination may be to look only at the cost, thinking "cheaper is better." However, that old saying "you get what you pay for,"is especially true in this situation. Here are some of the more important points that we have over our competition.
TECH SUPPORT/ When you need help you'll want to make sure you can get it. That is why we offer phone support or even live online help.With good tech support for our customers in place as there's nothing more annoying than needing assistance with your site and not being able to get it.
SET UP FEE/ MONTHLY FEE/We charge an initial set up fee to get your site set up and running on ther server. Fees ranging from 7.95 to 24.95, depending on the plan and services offered. My advice to you would be to look past the cheapest and most expensive ends of the scale and go with a mid-range pricing plan to be on the safe side. But it is your choice that is why we have 3 plans to choose from.
HARD DRIVE/ SPACE/ You need to keep in mind the size of your site when deciding how much space you really need. Generally, 20 to 30 MB is plenty for a small company site. You might want to ask if you can pay for more space should your site ever outgrow its present state. Very few people ever need more. But our plans do give you lots more at the same rates from 550 megs and up.
FTP ACCESS/ TELNET ACCESS/ Even if you plan on using Frontpage to manage your site, you'll still need to have FTP access. It is standard, with all plans at Cpwebhosting.net. Make sure you keep your user name and password in a safe place. You'll use FTP to set file permissions and to upload your files to the web server. You can also use FrontPage to do this as we have the Front Page Ext.
Telnet can be very useful for troubleshooting CGI scripts and changing server configurations. You can request Telnet at anytime.
CGI-BIN/ A very important component if you're planning on adding any sort of interactivity to your site like forms, shopping carts, etc. This comes as standard equipment.
EMAIL BOXES & POP 3 ALIASES/ One thing that's very important is the ability to use different aliases with a domain name. For example, if your domain is cpwebhosting.com, you may want to set up separate addresses to sort your mail like email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. They may all funnel into the same mailbox, but you can set up filters at your end, making customer service a whole lot easier.
If you have a "wildcard" account, you can set up as many aliases as you like. If you have other employees who will need their own private box, check with us.
STATS/ Once you start getting traffic, you'll want to know where it's coming from and what pages of your site are being visited.We will throw stats tracking in with your standard package and access to your log files, which you can then use with third party software to run reports on the traffic your site is receiving.
