e-commerce and web hosting

Shopping online is the new thing of the future.  Soon there will be no reason to leave home. E-Commerce actually stands for electronic commerce. The principal use for e-commerce on a site is to help in the marketing department with the buying and selling of a product or service online.

There are many things to consider when including e-commerce on a web site. The most important one is the web host. This is more important for the small business that is looking to expand. You want to make sure the web host is secure for both you and you customer.

Another thing to consider if the host is flexible with what the business want at any point in time that you don’t stay locked in one format. Also make sure that it’s user friendly for the customer.

Including ecommerce in a site is helpful to a business that is just starting out.

It helps with concentrating on the technology side of things. Such as funds transferring, Internet marketing these is just some examples.

E-Commerce is most popular with web developers and designers. This makes it easy to create individual accounts made per client. This also gives the ability of having a form of organization for the business owner.

E-commerce & Marketing Essentials Social Media

There are three major content management system and they are wordpress, joomla and Drupal. . Now you might be saying I thought all the content management system all work the same way. There are slight differences. So here we go.

The first one will be covering is wordpress. To be honest I would have it is the simplest content management systems to use. Word is not just a CMS it is also a place to blog about a topic of your interest. Their CMS concentrates on PHP and SQL.

The second CMS that is mostly used is joomla. . This CMS also uses PHP to help publish to the Internet. IT also helps create a mobile version of a website. A man who ran a non-profit organization developed it in 2005.

Drupal is the final one I will be discussing. It is considered more of the framework of a CMS. Which has to do with all the position of elements on a page. Not very many people choose this option. They find it more difficult to use then the other two because everything done in medullas.

There are different types of sites that are built with these content management systems for different purposes. The first one is for a communication .An example of a communication site for social media is facebook.  Facebook is a way for people to keep in touch with the family to be able to keep them up to date on any events.

The second type of site that can be made with these three content management systems is collaboration / authority building site. An example of this type of site is newsvine. This site helps confirm facts of a historical event.
