    Offering Different Services

    I offer web design along with hosting and domain registrations. Do you think it would be better to build three different sites, one dedicated to each service or build one site that sells all three.

    The domains and hosting would be signed up for by the customer. Where with the design/development, its all pretty much custom work quoted out.

    Most of my design customers aren't that technically saavy, so would it be easier just to handle the hosting and domains myself for the clients and just invoice them instead of having them deal with their domains and hosting and keeping it all up and running right.

    I know I am probably overthinking things, but I want it accessible to the most customers. I don't want the non-tech to feel overwhelmed by having the hosting and domain options that they have to handle themselves. And I dont want the tech-saavy to be insulted or bogged down by too much general information.

    Any thoughts or suggestions would be helpful.

    Thanks

    Tired of jumping web hosting providers? Tired of OVERSELLING? Tired of Poor service/quality?

    If you want to do game servers, you want a separate site. If your site doesn't have flash that would turn a regular everyday customer away with flashing lights and techno music, it's not a game server site That seems to be the "trend" for GSP's.

    Besides that, overall, why not put it all into one place? I mean one centralized location for everything that someone would need, it would work out.

    My 2 cents.

    I have a 3 seperate sites for each of the setups i have.
    web/dedi hosting, gameserver hosting and web design.

    Each site is on a different server in a different dc, they are seperate enitites in their own right but still linked to each other.
