Fishy Web Hosting Offers. Have You Been Caught?

You can see dozens of titles similar to those “… offers Free Service Upgrade”, “… Ads Free Website Marketing Tool To Service” in the web hosting news. PR works in web hosting industry the same way as it works for any other business. It focuses attention on a given company and promotes its brand and services.

Online PR services has become very popular in the web hosting industry within the last year. You can find at least 10 different online news PR agencies that web hosts use to distribute their press releases. PRWeb, Business Wire, W3Reports, Pressadvance, and many other online agencies distribute and publish web hosting news and press releases.

Promotional offers, discounted services and free additions to hosting services are frequently used technique that web hosts use to increase their sales. Most companies are fair enough and do not introduce hidden rules into their terms of service. There are hundreds of hosting providers however which run promotions, subject to different hidden conditions.

My suggestions is “Always ask before sign-up”! This way you know what are you paying for. If a company provides good customer service and if it is reliable enough you may never quit. But if for some reason you decide to move elsewhere it is better to know that the web host will not put any obstacles in your way.
