Homework help anyone?

Kinda in need for some homework help...not sure if anyone could help though.
It's for my web design class.

I'm supposed to make a website for three web host providers and I'm supposed to include in a table the "type of e-commerce package"

"type of e-commerce package" is kinda throwing me off....does that mean what the e-commerce package includes? I'm so stuck and it's due tomorrow. I thought it was what it includes, but when I reread it I became unsure of it

Simply put, e-commerce is the online transaction of business, featuring linked computer systems of the vendor, host, and buyer. Electronic transactions involve the transfer of ownership or rights to use a good or service. Most people are familiar with business-to-consumer electronic business (B2C). Common illustrations include Amazon.com, llbean.com, CompUSA.com, travelocity.com, and hotels.com.

E-commerce can be divided into:
  • E-tailing or "virtual storefronts" on Web sites with online catalogs, sometimes gathered into a "virtual mall"
  • The gathering and use of demographic data through Web contacts
  • Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), the business-to-business exchange of data
    e-mail and fax and their use as media for reaching prospects and established customers (for example, with newsletters)
  • Business-to-business buying and selling (B2B)
Hope this helps

Well it all comes down to what does "package" actually means. If you write the whole question then we can understand it in whole context. Out of context words sometimes don't make sense.

In terms of e-commerce I agree with RegalCharm's CPM comment .

Is it possible to see the whole question please?

This chapter discussed options for hosting Web Sites. In this research excersize you will search the web for host providers and report on three that meet the following criteria:
Support PHP and MySQL
Offer E-commerce capabilities
Provide at least 50 MB of hard disk space

Use your favorite search engine to find the web host providers or visit the Web host directories such as The List of Web Hosts -- Business and HostIndex.com Web Hosting Directory - Web Hosting Resource Since 1998. Create a web page that presents your findings. Include links to your three Web host providers. You web page should include a table of information such as set-up fees, monthly feeds, domain name registration costs, ammount of hard dick space, type of e-commerce package, and cost of e-commerce package.


I know what e-commerce is....but didn't think there were different "types"
For my links, I'm using Web Hosting, Reseller Hosting, and Dedicated Website Hosting w/ cPanel - HostGator, HostPapa.com: Green Web Hosting Company Powered by 100% Green Energy, and Host Monster - Web hosting

Well by reading this I can tell you three web hosting providers which provide PHP, SQL and e-comerece packages.

I think what your teacher meant was different types of packages those companies are providing and not "E-commerce types".

1: 1&1 Internet Ltd.- Home Page
2: Web Hosting - Web Hosting Company UK - Fasthosts
3: Web hosting services - WebFusion

1and1 E-Commerce web packages

1&1 Internet Ltd.-1&1 eCommerce-

Fasthosts

Internet Merchant Account - Accept Credit Card - Fasthosts

Web fusion

I'm so confused. It's a question in the book, not something the teacher gave me....so could the book make that big of a mistake.
here are the websites that I'm using
Host Monster - Web hosting
Web Hosting, Reseller Hosting, and Dedicated Website Hosting w/ cPanel - HostGator
HostPapa.com: Green Web Hosting Company Powered by 100% Green Energy
Those matched everything that I needed....but they only have one plan (from what I remember).


For that part, I just put what the package included, and I seriously think that was wrong...and the price that I put was the price for the actual website because that was the only price listed and the website included the e-commerce.
Thankfully this is my second class, so I have time to work on it, but it's just kinda frustrating

If you read the question in context it makes sense that what the book is asking is to

1: Create your website
2: Research on Web hosting websites
3: Make sure they provide/include these criterias
(i) Support PHP and MySQL
(ii) Offer E-commerce capabilities
(iii) Provide at least 50 MB of hard disk space
4: Include links to your three Web host providers.
5: Your web page should include a table of information such as set-up fees, monthly feeds, domain name registration costs, ammount of hard dick space, type of e-commerce package, and cost of e-commerce package.

Ok if you read the point number 5 carefully it states,

Create a table

*****************************
Package 1 -- Package 2 -- Package 3
Domain
Hosting
Space
Email
SSL

etc
************************
set-up fees
Package 1 - 9.99
Package 2 - 10.99
Package 3 - 14.99


Types of Ecomerece packages we (meaning you offer) are:

ehome shop
ebusiness shop
ebusinness pro shop
ebusiness dev shop

Then further explain what these packages include and how much they are.

Basically use CPM (copy paste modify) what you can see here: 1&1 Internet Ltd.-1&1 eCommerce-

oooh ok...
but the three websites that I used didn't have different "types" of e-commerce plans. It was all included in their web hosting. So it would just be on plan, right?
