Google try to muscle in on the hosting niche

As internet designers, who also run some of our own internet sites, we know internet hosting is really a crucial part to how a website gets up and running. You will find specialist internet hosts like Blue host, along with companies like Hostgator, but big international technology organizations like AT&T, IBM, Dell and Apple are in addition involved in the business. Even the likes of have a small web hosting arm.

Now Google would like to get involved too and they have been on a national tour of the United States to demonstrate their new deal of software training and totally free internet hosting. This week they stopped off in Florida, on the 21st leg of their tour of the US states, seeking to drum up business for their fresh enterprise.

At the Tampa Museum of Art, Google hosted several training sessions yesterday to help small business owners get online, and market their free of charge web web hosting to them. Scott Levitan, Google's small-business group director of marketing said with regards to the promotion:

"We estimate 68 percent of businesses in Florida don't even have a website. Getting those small companies online is good for them, but also good for Google, so users can find them when they go looking for somewhere to eat, or a plumber or anything."

Concentrating on these kinds of states is really a good plan for the likes of Google because they can attempt to take advantage of prospective new revenue streams. The tour can make small business owners, unsure of how to get on-line, mindful of the chances and naturally, Google will recommend their web hosting offer as element of their information. There are some good offers around in web hosting presently like the good $3.95 each month offer from Blue host I'm paying to run my website.

In any case, the more businesses that get online the better as there will ideally be a lot more work for web designers as well as any website builder!
