Why You Want to Host Your Own Website

In life you often want to have control over how things work out. Sometimes you want others to lead you along the way and tell you how things are going to be and you go with the flow. Being a follower, rather than a leader in the case of online marketing can sometimes work for you, while other times it can destroy your chances of success.

If you are just starting out, listening to a marketing "guru" can help you make some crucial decisions on what steps to take in order to get going. One of the most recurring themes that come out is the basics that you must start with in order to progress. This basic, is in reference to web hosting. The other main component that goes hand in hand with this is having your own domain as well. You can pick these up rather inexpensively from many places on the web.

When you get a domain, you are often offered a small hosting package, though this usually comes with limited capabilities as well. You lose a sense of control here and are not able to take the complete lead over what could possibly be available for your website compared to having your own host where you could incorporate more code (HTML etc.) that would allow you to have a higher functioning site.

The major thing you want to look for is what is known as the cPanel. This is short for control panel and is what allows you to manipulate you site to meet your needs. Adding code, blogs, forums, shopping carts and having access to easily load up files, pictures, audio and more are just some of the key features included in a cPanel that give you a tremendous advantage when designing your layout.

If you want to just go with the blog format, having the fantastico software will make you life easier in quickly being able to install your blog in a matter of minutes. Now, do not get me wrong, the blog itself will take quite a while in making it appear how you like it (which is a story for another article). This includes things like widgets, advertising/AdSense, banners, opt-in forms and much more. As the search engines are more friendly towards blogs as they are updated more, you have a better chance of receiving generic traffic than if you would if you went with a static website that never changed.

With the changes in technology occurring, it is not enough to just have a Facebook page or a twitter account, having a running website that people can view is important and again, stressing your ability to control it is the most important thing. There is no time like the present to start your own website. Everyone has the capabilities to have a great product in their mind, or even to promote a great product for someone else. The best way to become successful is to solve peoples problems and I am sure you have it in you one way or another to help solve something.

Now you just need to go out and start solving it while controlling it yourself!

David Gardner hosts over 50 websites on his own. He controls them by putting whatever he wants on his sites and mostly with knowledge he picked up by learning it himself. He thinks you can learn it easily as well. If you want to find out more about getting your own hosting so you can control things how you want them to and get some tips from him, go to http://MyGVOTrial.com and take control of your business, or your pleasure.

HostThenProfit, from GVO, is now live with $10 hosting (up to 4 domains)

Unlike HostGator, where this might be included, in regards to hosting domains, you also get other great values like an autoresponder, conference room, live trainings and much more.

As a GVO Subscriber for over two years (and fully enjoying and relying on it) I am excited that more people will be able to access the features and benefits associated with this.

Host The Profit was brought about by Joel Therien (the founder of GVO) along side his team due to many suggestions from affiliates and promoters as it would allow more people to benefit from the materials for a very low monthly cost. Typically, the cost for the larger package that is suggested is $45/month, which is still a major deal considering all they offer from autoresponders, opt-in forms, banners, prospecting pages, hosting etc.

For less than $10 a month, members receive the following:

>>> host 4 different domains
>>> top of the line professional auto responder service (with 500 subscriber potential)
>>> your very own video hosting
>>> Your own GVOconference room
>>> The best business opportunity now in Pre Launch!

For those looking to start up their own business, or get their own blogs going where they have a little more control, the cPanel options with fantastico are priceless. Many major sites and companies are converting to the WordPress platform due to the endless amount of Apps that are making its existence supreme.

Another major bonus of Host Then Profit is it's ability to be considered, mlm or multi level marketing and network marketing. Unlike many of the MLM companies out there where you have to buy hundreds of dollars of product (which fill up your garage for sure!)

The $10 cost for something you will use anyways as an online marketer is also tax deductable assuming you set up your taxes correctly and your site's intent is to make money. This is like a bonus on top of all the features discussed above.
So if you are serious about developing your web presence, please head over the Host Then Profit now and join. You can even partake in the $1 trial if you think this is what you need to get going online.

Once you join I will be sending you a special link for some very educational videos I have put together in regards to getting the ball rolling. Don't waste your time and especially MINE, if you are going to join or do the trial, to later only leave it alone and never get your first site hosted. (You will need to purchase your website domain name elsewhere and I can make suggestions if you leave me a comment below)
