History of online shopping
Shampagne explores the Online Shopping Boom
Is online shopping good or bad?
The biggest benefit of online shopping is 'convenience' as it can be done from anywhere, at any time and even from our phones as all you need to do so is have a decent internet connection. Also, many a times online shopping is cheaper than offline.
What is the history of online shopping?
Electronic shopping was invented by an English inventor called Michael Aldrich. In 1979, he invented the earliest form of e-commerce which allowed online transaction processing between business and customers, as well as between business and business.
When did Internet shopping start?
Tesco and Asda dabbled with home shopping services via the computer in the mid-1980s, but it was not until the invention of the World Wide Web by Tim Berners-Lee that widespread consumer use of the Internet became a possibility.
What is the main purpose of online shopping?
The purpose of online shopping is to save time, save money. Through online shopping one can save his valuable time. One can watch and select things he wants to buy. Through online shopping we can save our money because prices are less than market prices and we receive our bought things at our home.
What is history of e commerce?
History of ecommerce dates to the invention of the very old notion of "sell and buy", electricity, cables, computers, modems, and the Internet. Ecommerce became possible in 1991 when the Internet was opened to commercial use. Since that date thousands of businesses have taken up residence at web sites.
Fancy Starting your own Business, you can link your new site to Etsy, Ebay or Amazon?
Top 10 Host Sites for your online shopping site
1. Dream Host Shared hosting starting at $2.59/mo. WordPress hosting starting at $2.59/mo. VPS hosting starting at $10/mo. Dedicated servers starting at $149/mo. Cloud hosting starting at $4.50/mo. Web hosting is, no doubt, as much a cutthroat business as any other. But that is why the fact that Dream Host’s ongoing offer to provide a free shared website to 501(c)(3) non-profits is so notable. (Full disclosure: A non-profit I was affiliated with once took advantage of this offer.) Beyond that, Dream Host is one of the best web hosting providers for many reasons. First, this web host operates its own control panel, which is convenient and easy to understand. While phone customer support is not available 24/7, it is responsive to live chat and tickets. The company uses super-fast SSDs for all its storage, has a free SSL certificate (for more secured web browsing) and provides SSH access for those plans that are intended for more technical users.
2. Bluehost Shared hosting starting at $2.95/mo. WordPress hosting starting at $2.95/mo. VPS hosting starting at $18.99/mo. Dedicated hosting starting at $79.99/mo. When you sign up to Bluehost, you will get a free domain name for the first year, along with unmetered bandwidth and a free SSL certificate (allowing you to operate a secure website for your personal use or business). If you are a WordPress user, Bluehost is one of the best web hosting providers to consider.
3. A2 Hosting Shared hosting starting at $2.96/mo. WordPress hosting starting at $2.96/mo. Reseller hosting starting at $9.80/mo. VPS hosting starting at $5/mo. Dedicated servers starting at $99.59/mo. A2 Hosting does a lot of things right, which is why we consider it to be among the best web hosting providers. This web hosting service offers Linux and Windows-based servers, SSD, caching, CDN and SSL for all plans. While some plans offer uptime monitoring and regular backups, all plans offer malware scanning and automatic patching and updates. The hosting company offers a managed hosting service called Host Guard. Subscribers of this web hosting service have access to a 24/7/365 "Guru Crew" support team that manages network, hardware, software, and security.
4. Hostinger Shared hosting starting at $0.99/mo. WordPress hosting starting at $0.99/mo. VPS hosting starting at $3.95/mo. Cloud hosting starting at $9.99/mo. Hostinger, a hosting provider based out of Lithuania, boasts it signs up a new client every five seconds. With 29 million users in 178 countries and subsidiaries in the US, Indonesia and Brazil, the company has been in operation since 2004. Hostinger has a nice selection of plans, all of which can be optimized for WordPress. We particularly liked that even the least expensive plans offered some level of SSH access for those who need it. The company gained points for its offering of SSD performance, dedicated IP, and regular backups for some plans.
5. HostGator Shared hosting starting at $2.75/mo. WordPress hosting starting at $5.95/mo. Reseller hosting starting at $19.95/mo. VPS hosting starting at $29.95/mo. Dedicated servers starting at $119/mo. Cloud hosting starting at $4.95/mo. HostGator is a full-service hosting company, with plans for almost any need. Whether you are starting out and need a very basic shared hosting plan or need to be able to operate your own machine dedicated solely to your company, HostGator has a service that can help.
6. page Shared hosting starting at $1.99/mo. WordPress hosting starting at $3.75/mo. VPS hosting starting at $19.99/mo. Dedicated servers starting at $119.99/mo. Probably the first thing most folks will notice about iPage is the low price for shared hosting service. At less than two bucks a month for the 36-month plan, you can buy three full years of hosting for under $75, a jaw-dropping deal no matter how you look at it.
7. InMotion Hosting Shared business hosting starting at $2.49/mo. WordPress hosting starting at $4.99/mo. Reseller hosting starting at $13.99/mo. VPS hosting starting at $22.99/mo. Dedicated servers starting at $139.99/mo. We particularly like that the company offers free backups and SSH access, even on its lower-end plans. WordPress support with integrated WP-CLI is also available.
8. Mocha Host Shared starting at $1.95/mo. WordPress starting at $2.48/mo. Reseller starting at $9.87/mo. VPS starting at $7.98/mo. Cloud starting at $19/mo. As dedicated coffee fans, we love the name Mocha Host. The company has a wide range of offerings, but by far, the stand-out feature Mocha Host provides is a 180-day money-back guarantee. That is the best we have seen so far, and it removed just about all the risk from any hosting experience. Overall, we were impressed with how customer-centric the company's offerings are. For example, unlike some of the hosting providers we have profiled (and deducted points from), Mocha Host’s published prices do not balloon once you have settled in with its service. It has a lifetime price-lock guarantee.
9. Web Hosting Hub Shared hosting starting at $4.99/mo. WordPress hosting starting at $4.99/mo. Web Hosting Hub has an entry-level starting price, but some surprisingly valuable benefits for such a low-price entrant. Web Hosting Hub uses Bold Grid as a site builder. Bold Grid is an add-on to WordPress, so there is no lock-in. This overcomes the major problem of most site builders: you are locked into that host and that tool, often requiring you to completely rebuild your site if you want to expand. By using a WordPress-based solution, all the rather considerable power of a WordPress site is available for future expansion.
10. BigCommerce Standard plan starting at $29.95/mo. Plus, plan starting at $79.95/mo. Pro plan starting at $249.95/mo. BigCommerce is a bit different from our other hosting plans in that it is a SaaS (software-as-a-service) provider instead of an IaaS (infrastructure-as-a-service) provider. In other words, rather than renting space on a virtual machine where you setup and configure your own site, BigCommerce provides you with an app you login to that creates and online store.
