Disadvantages of Locally-Hosted Autoresponders
How do they Work?
Locally-hosted autoresponders refer to those
that are hosted on your own web server.
These are usually scripts
or programs that you must install on your web server.
These usually involve the purchase or
leasing of a program or script written in Perl, PHP, ASP or some other
These programs often require a database
backend as well e.g., mySQL, SQL2000 or Postgres.
After installation, a web browser is used to
access these programs e.g., to set up the program, to run it and to
backup the subscribers list.
The use of these programs may or may not
require some knowledge of the scripting language it is written in.
Installation may be done by the providers of
these programs, or you can do it yourself if you have some basic
knowledge of tasks like ftp, CHMOD, HTML, CRON and creating databases.
Some of these autoresponders can be quite
flexible and have very powerful features.
This option is suitable for you if you are a
webmaster who have your own web space.
Advantages & Disadvantages
For professional internet
marketers who have a large subscriber list and a growing need for
multiple autoresponders, a locally-hosted autoresponder may be the better choice
compared to the remotely-hosted ones because:
You can buy the program and owned it for
life, so there is no monthly charges involved apart from the initial
cost in buying the program.
You may be able to run multiple copies
of the program on multiple websites if the licensing condition
allows. Or else you may be able to upgrade for a small fee. It is
important that you find out
how many copies of the software (and/or websites) you are allowed to
install and run the software to determine its real cost.
You can have better customization
features and better control over the database.
You may be able to customize the script
further to suit your need by paying the developer a small fee or by
doing it yourself (if you are familiar with the scripting language).
