Your website hosted for free? Yes, that's possible!

Nowadays every single person, company or even animal has its own website on the internet. Some people may have more than one website, maybe a blog and then a photography website on two different domain names. It is so easy to setup a website that the number of these have simply exploded. All you need is a domain name and a web hosting company where you will store your website's content. The domain name can can bought for a few dollars a year and the price range doesn't vary much among various domain registrars.

With web hosting it is a different story, you can find prices ranging from maybe 2 dollars a month up to 20 dollars a month. This is quite confusing to the novice, especially with all the thousands of options and features. Fact is, that for a simple website it is not worth paying 20 dollars a month, you could just go with the cheapest website and notice no single difference in the quality of the hosting. Now, what if I tell you that you could even get your web hosting for free? Yes, free web hosting really exists and you should definitely give it a try before thinking of spending your money on paid web hosting.

The obvious advantage of free web hosting is that you do not pay a single dollar except of course for your domain name but you could also just use a free sub domain which is often included with the free hosting. Like the normal hosting you will also get access to a control panel enabling you to setup and administer your hosting as you wish. That would be for example the FTP accounts, databases and PHP configuration settings. If there is one disadvantage I would mention is that some free hosters do not include mail accounts but of course you could always use google mail.

Watch current TV shows for free online


Staying current with a TV show can be a difficult undertaking. Primetime, in-season shows generally air for 30 minutes or an hour, once a week. That's one chance each week to watch the latest episode of your favorite show.

Combine that small window with the increasingly loaded schedule of the average family, and a seemingly simple task like watching television becomes difficult.

This is why, among other reasons, many people are turning to the Internet to watch current TV shows. With a variety of sites streaming current seasons of popular TV shows, it really is an attractive option.

With these sites and an affordable Internet plan, you can watch the top TV shows for an extremely low price. Visit ClearInternetDeals.com to find examples of the type of Internet plan that works perfectly for streaming TV shows.

If you're interested in switching to the Internet to keep up with your favorite shows, here are a few sites you should look into.

Hulu – Hulu is great for a few reasons: a wide variety of shows, high-quality video, and lots of bonus content, just to name a few. The one caveat is that once you get more than a few episodes behind, you need a Hulu Plus subscription to view the older episodes.

Network Websites – CBS, ABC, and NBC often have full episodes of current shows available directly on their Websites. Don't count on catching up on an entire season, but you should be safe to catch a few episodes here and there. And, of course, they're all free.

Sidereel.com – Sometimes Sidereel is hit or miss with finding quality streams of the episodes you want. However, once you do find some quality links, it's a great way to catch up on a large quantity of episodes. If your favorite show is halfway through its season, Hulu won't let you watch every episode. It's quite possible you will find every episode on Sidereel, though.

Project Free TV – Okay, this is where we start getting a little less legitimate. It's included here as a choice because you can't deny the large quantity of available shows and movies. Just be wary of popups.

An email marketing primer

In this concise email marketing primer, I will explain what this specialized field of internet marketing is all about and its different types.

Let's first start with the definition: email marketing is the direct marketing of a commercial message in most cases to a group of people or to a particular person using today's electronic mail as media.

Generally email marketing is used to send advertisements, solicit business sales or donations. For that purpose the marketers employ their current customer listings from their own database or acquire customer listings from third parties. The goal of email marketing is to enhance or refresh the current relationship between the merchant and its customer in order to get a new deal and in a broader sense to earn the customer's loyalty. For new customers it is clear that the purpose is here to acquire these new customers.

There are three different types of email marketing. First of all, there are email newsletters which are are sent on a regular basis to customers who have prior subscribed for this. Transaction emails are sent on a specific action or even triggered by the customer, for example when purchasing on-line. Finally, direct emails are used for communicating promotional messages.

Since the invention of the glasses back in the 11th century there has not been much progress in terms of technology and what glasses are actually capable of.

Are mobile phones going to replace watches?


It seems like mobile phones or in general any other kind of small portable and modern electronic device are starting to replace the need of wearing a traditional wrist watch. Maybe some of you don't even remember the feeling of wearing a watch... A watch is a fine piece of extreme precision mechanics very often built manually by real humans and can be worn with proud. Can a cell phone really replace this? I would definitely answer no to this question. For instance how annoying is it to always have to grab your phone out of your pocket or bag just to find out what time it is. In fact by doing that exact task you loose time. A real no go for time maniacs who have the habit of looking up the time every five minutes. Not forgetting to mention that your mobile phone might run out of battery especially if it is already two to three years old. A watch will never let you down as a good one is known to be reliable.
So to sum up a watch like the Michael Kors Watches is something special, maybe it was a gift from a special person, maybe it belong to someone of your near family or you simply love the mechanics inside which make it tic.
