Did you notice the part when Ken says that you usually go to a typical web host and they give you a space on a computer, a site builder and a good luck? Well, that is exactly what happens when you're just looking for a small business hosting solution.
What your hosting solution won't do for your business
As we repeatedly said in this section of the site: a business is a more complex concept than a product or a hosting solution. Is a system. Therefore, your hosting solution won't:
- Give any idea about how good or bad is your product or service.
- Let analyze the demand and competition of your business.
- Help you to develop a marketing plan.
- Give you the tools you'll need to build relationships with your clients (unless you pay extra charges for them of course)
- Guide your steps at all.
I found helpful this additional explanation about this topic: "Web hosting is more than just bandwidth". But what I definitively found clarifying was to compare the features and dollar costs of SBI!, Yahoo! and 1&1.
