Almost everyone has a hobby. Some people collect models of Italian sports cars, some paint landscapes, others read a book a day. As different as those hobbies are, they have something in common: they take time and cost money. Therefore, wouldn’t it be great to make some money with your hobby to finance it?

It has never been easier to sell products online. Although there are free open source programs for webshops, open source software requires a steep learning curve and extensive experience of frameworks and PHP is necessary for individual programming. Open source software is probably not advisable if somebody wants to quickly implement an online shop for instant deployment with a few standard features.

Free is not free
The bottom line is that free is not free, since creation and development of a webshop are time-intensive – and time is money. Luckily, there is a simpler solution. Hostpoint offers an inexpensive and professional webshop solution as a construction kit.

You can gain your first experience in the online business with the LIMITED Webshop. If you already have a more extensive business, the ESSENTIAL Webshop will be your choice. Last but not least, the PREMIUM Webshop offers a high-end product for anybody wanting to manage their ambitious, fast growing online business efficiently and securely.

He didn't find computers very interesting for quite some time. An Amiga 500 as a games machine was the high point at that time. Computers began to move into his focus with the advent of the internet and the possibility of building cool websites. In 2001, he crossed paths with an internet company by coincidence.
