Optional Extras From Your Web Host
Obviously certain aspects are essential to any good web host offering. Bandwidth, for example, is a vital aspect. But whilst there are set things everyone should look out for in a web host no matter what their needs there are other optional extras that can influence a decision.
For some people these optional extras may be more important than to others. Some may be as vital as bandwidth, whilst others you may never use. For the most part these 'icing on the cake' offers are very useful if you ever decide to use them.
Optional Extras from Your Web Host
Fantastico. Fantastico is a great piece of software for anyone who is looking to install software onto their website. It allows for nearly 1 click installs (once you have chosen your login details) of almost all the best free CMS software options including Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, PhpBB, etc
Perfect for those that struggle with software/script installs or those who simply want to save some time.
Autoresponder. Many hosting companies offer a free, basic autoresponder as part of the package and yet people don't even realise it. Whilst not as powerful as the services from the likes of Aweber it does give a free option which makes it great for those on a budget.
Auto backups. Some webhosts are able to offer an automatic back up service with their hosting – so that you have files you can revert to if the worst happens and everything crashes.
Extra sites. In some cases you are able to host many different sites as part of your hosting deal. This can make creating new sites far more affordable.
Reseller. It is useful to have the option to upgrade to a reseller account if you are hoping to have numerous sites – as this enables you to have cpanel access to each individual site rather than accessing everything via the one cpanel.
