Are You STILL Conducting Business Without A Hosting Account?

I cannot tell you how many times I've seen people limit their success just because they wouldn't take the time to look into the benefits of a hosting account. Why in the world this happens is beyond me, but for some reason there will always be people content to scrape by while others do whatever they can to reach the top. I fall into the latter category and I have a feeling you do too.
So what is a hosting account and why do you need one?
If you want a personalized email address, to add extra images to your eBay auction for free, or you want to build a website, you need a hosting account to facilitate those tasks. Imagine an email address as being a car and a website being a house. The hosting account is the garage the car parks in and the land the house is built on. You can't have one without the other.
Once you have a hosting account, you can register your very own domain name. You know what a domain name is - eBay.com, Yahoo.com and Google.com are all popular domain names. Isn't it time your business had its own? Find a domain name that's relevant to your business and register it. I would also recommend making it very similar to the eBay user id you are using to sell your products. This will make it easier for your customers to remember and find you.
Once you have a domain name, you can assign different email addresses to the email accounts included with your web hosting service. For instance, if your domain name was AllTimeDVDClassics.com, you could set up your eBay email address to be email@example.com. Not only will your email address clearly define what your business is about, but it will look a heck of a lot better and more professional than firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
You can also use your hosting account to add free images to your eBay auctions. The process to do this is pretty basic, and I will be happy to help you with it once you get things going.
Once you have a hosting account, you can build an ecommerce site to sell your DVDs from. Integrate catalog and shopping cart functions and allow customers to buy DVDs directly from your website. This will enable you to generate an income outside of your eBay sales.
I have to admit. I put off getting a hosting account for a while because I was concerned it was going to be overly complicated and I didn't fully understand it. Nothing could be further from the truth. It was one of the best decisions I ever made, and one of the most affordable. Basically, if you can use the internet and navigate Windows, you can manage a hosting account.
I fully recommend Host Gator and would be happy to help you get going if you purchase an account with them. Please use the banner below to visit their website.
