Host Depot Helps Businesses Grab a Piece of the $32 Billion Online Shopping Pie This e-Commerce Holiday Season

Coral Springs, FL - November 16, 2006 - This holiday season, an estimated 114 million shoppers will spend $32 billion, an increase of 18% over last year, according to Jupiter Research. This is a very important statistic for businesses that have not yet joined in on the e-Holiday craze, as well as for those who have obsolete, outdated websites or old clunky shopping carts that will turn potential customers away, according to Host Depot.

Host Depot, the industry’s top rated hosting provider according to Webhostdir.com is providing their solutions for those who want a piece of this season’s online holiday pie.

According to Jeff Pettit, VP marketing from Host Depot, “It’s not just more online shoppers, but there are many people setting up online stores to cash in on the e-Holidays shopping craze. All these new businesses are looking for easy online tools to get in the game and start selling. The problem is that many are waiting until the last minute, which is where we come in.”

Host Depot offers solutions to help customers launch their e-commerce web site fast, with tools allowing them to have accounts able to take orders the same day they order their hosting services. As more and more entrepreneurs are seeking low-cost, user-friendly e-commerce tools, Host Depots comprehensive and quick set-up tools are becoming increasingly popular year after year.
