This project will help develop your Internet skills in commercial services for hosting an e-commerce site for a small start- up company.
You would like to set up a Web site to sell towels, linens, pottery, and tableware from Portugal and are examining services for hosting small business Internet storefronts. Your Web site should be able to take secure credit card payments and to calculate shipping costs and taxes. Initially, you would like to display photos and descriptions of 40 different products. Visit Yahoo! Small Business, GoDaddy, and Comcast Business Class and compare the range of e- commerce hosting services they offer to small businesses, their capabilities, and costs. Also examine the tools they provide for creating an e- commerce site. Compare these services and decide which you would use if you were actually establishing a Web store. Write a brief report indicating your choice and explaining the strengths and weaknesses of each.
