With deals like a free domain with every hosting package, Dotster helps individuals and businesses find online solace from economic woes

Vancouver, WA - May 7, 2009 - In a Tuesday interview with MSNBC, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said the economy is prepared to rebound. However, according to Bernanke, "the U.S. is still likely to see 'sizable' job losses in the coming months." The good news is that for more than nine years, Dotster Inc. has made it easy for individuals and small to medium businesses to realize the economic benefits of an online presence. Today, with Dotster's free domain with every hosting package, it's even more affordable to create an online income.

Where many "brick-and-mortar" businesses are susceptible to the increased operating costs and decreased sales prevalent in the current economy, an online business offers low startup investments and significant savings in the four factors that make up the largest portion of a business' operating costs: employees (it is very possible to run an online business with just one person, you!), buildings (a large number of online businesses are run from home), travel and production.

Many people are already taking this opportunity to capitalize on the ease of creating an online presence. According to the Wall Street Journal, in the United States there are "as many people making a living blogging as practicing law" and "at no other time in recent history has it been easier or cheaper to start a new kind of (online) company" according to Time.

"There are doers and there are those who wait," says Clint Page, CEO of Dotster. "This economy is not going to deal kindly with those who simply wait for things to get better. On the other hand, we've already seen it reward those who continue to move forward. Dotster's goal is to make ambitions reality. People come to us with passion and an idea, and we enable the rest."

Dotster hosting provides everything an individual or small business needs to get their site on the web, including over 500 professionally designed templates and a simple do-it-yourself website builder. The Basic Hosting has no setup fee and includes 100 Email accounts, spam and virus protection. Plus the domain name is free!
