We are so used to the bombardment of advt, pop ups, etc. It is a wonderful experience to get much more for far less. It is so exiting. Everyone likes bargain hunting ! If you are a bargain hunter, essentially looking only at price, you will like it !! It is just like going to a mall. You know how it feels after shopping at a mall. Look at your shopping bags, your credit card spent amount and compare it with the original goal of going to the mall. Did you shop only for what you needed ??
How many visitors are expected to visit your online website and how do you plan to offer the best browsing experience to them ? Thats the key goal.

For a barest minimum online presence one needs DNS server, Web Server, Mail server, Data base server. The complexity grows based on the technology you used to develop the website too!
