   Services and resources available on the internet are expending phenomenally and are receiving
global acceptance day by day. Amateurs and professionals alike look towards e-resources to be
updated about latest developments in their fields and acquire an edge over others by staying informed
and develop new sets of skills. One such rapidly growing online service is of web-based business.

 Over the last two decades, the internet has become both an inevitable repository of information and a
mode of communication. The advantages the internet offers are not relegated to only the mainstream
ideas but there are also fringe ideas that flourish on web. It is an undeniable fact that computers and
the internet have drastically altered the way the people view and interact with the world.

 While information technology has become a catalyst for revolutionizing communication, education,
entertainment, commerce and many other spheres of human activity, there is a dire need to bring
about substantial changes at the grass root level in order to fully capitalize on advantages of the
information age and more specifically utilizing the diversified opportunities of web related businesses.

web sites. There is as such no time lag, not much waiting or standing in long queues and availability of

 Balancing the pros and the cons of online business, it can easily be said that the future lies with this
form of business. Although the challenges and security risks confronting the online business are quite
evident, they are easily outnumbered by its benefits and advantages, not only for the business-oriented
