Disadvantages of Remotely-Hosted Autoresponders
How they work?
A remotely hosted autoresponder means that
your autoresponder will be hosted on and work from someone else's
website rather than your own.
These are web-based subscription services
and the provider usually provides you with a HTML form and (the
provider's) email address for you to receive emails and to send
These autoresponders are usually written in
Perl, PHP or ASP scripts and are installed on and run from a web server.
The programs often require a database backend as well e.g., mySQL,
SQL2000 or Postgres.
This option is suitable for you if you do
not have your own web space.
This is ideal for beginners who has a fairly
small subscriber list and do not require multiple autoresponders.
Advantages & Disadvantages
The main advantage of this type of service
is they are very easy to set up and can be fairly reliable.
There are many good services to choose from,
some of them have been around for a number of years.
The user does not need a script, a database
or a web server. In other words, the services are host-independent i.e.,
there is no need to seek the permission of your web host to allow you to
run any particular services on your site e.g., cgi access or mySQL.
Users of these autoresponders are charged a
monthly subscription fee (currently around $20 each month for each
There is usually no initial cost involved.
So the initial cost of using such a service may be lower than
locally-hosted ones which require the purchase of a script or program.
But if you need to run multiple
autoresponders, the cost will add up quickly and soon exceed the cost of the
Another drawback is that they can be a bit
inflexible with little room for customization. This is because the
programs are not hosted on your site and you do not have access to them.
However, remotely-hosted autoresponders
usually have more features than the other types of autoresponders e.g.,
spam checker and list builder. So if you really need these features, you
should consider using them.
