Why You Want to Host Your Own Website

Taking control over your online business by using your own web hosting provider and not one associated with the a domain reseller has many benefits and features

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.

GVO Host then profit webinar replay with Joel Therien and Mark Call

Last nights GVO Host Then Profit webinar with Joel Therien, Mark Call, Brian Bear, Tissa Godavitarne and more was eye opening last night.

You can see the replay right now at
==> Host The Profit Replay

A short warning in that they do go almost 2 hours, but this will be worth your time for sure to smooth away any questions and concern you might have about GVO Host Then Profit.

GVO Offers web hosting and online marketing solutions which include but are not limited to the following:
Web hosting, video production/hosting, autoresonder, opt in forms, page templates, recruiting templates, banners, downtime witness, online conference software and more all with 24 hour live support and a ton of weekly live trainings as well as recorded videos.

The main focus here is the idea that you will be saving money. There is no guarantee you will make money with GVO, but it is highly likely you might! If you were to pay for all the featured software independently of GVO, you would be running a monthly bill of at least $100-500, while GVO Host Then Profit, is a measley $9.97/month.

What you get for this is a limited version of their titanium package with hosting up to 4 domains, a 500 subscriber list (these can be upgraded as your business grows as well) blogger builder, conference room and more.

After watching and listening to how some of the top affiliates were making out, like Brian Bear, coming out of his truck for the most part and pulling over 300 new members was enlightening.

The key idea is sticking with the basics. If you do a video of the basics and get others to know like and trust your message, they are more apt to believe in what you are talking about and willing to see the information you are presenting to them as being beneficial. When we are trying to help you save money in your business, this is the icing on the cake.

I have personally been using GVO for over 2 years and swear by them. Their support and freindliness goes beyond what you would ever expect. When you can communicate with the ones who run the show, you know it is a company you want to work with.

Though you might need to re-arrange your schedule some to watch the video, you will get the idea that this is what you need to do for your business today. Whether you have a developed site and need to cut back somewhere, this will help, or if you are new and starting out as well, this will get you going in a cost effective manner as well.
