Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer. I'll do some research and get back to you if I discover an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could help you..
Most american companies hire indian people because they are cheap labor..
Not only that, but any type of freelance iPage site or service oriented iPage site is inundated with indian people offering cheap labor....
I dont know what the indian currency is or how it compares to the US, but it stands to reason that their economy is nowhere near ours. Maybe their overall economy is growing, but how does that compare to the average employee or business in the US? Meaning, that the increasing economy may definitely be good news for .in HostGator holders, but generally speaking it seems that the end-user market in $$$ is nowhere near that of countries like the US, Japan, UK, etc... So you have a HostGator that might be worth $5,000 in a US market, but it's only worth $500 in an Indian market....
Sometimes high-tech business analysis can be summed up by an obvious observation.....
Are they manufacturing and why is their economy growing so fast?..
I know telemarketing is big business there. Telemarketing is a respectable and decent wage earning job as opposed to it being one of the most loathed jobs here. Of course the usual suspects, programming and tech support are also big money earners...
At US, you call phone companies (or many other big companies) at off hours, you get those indian customer support people. (we all try to call the regular hour so to avoid them!)..
....programming and tech support is also a loathed job..
American office jobs are generally being outsourced to India ... all my websites.
Were done by Indians ... the Americans just can't compete with their prices...
There have been quite a few big companies that have moved their call centres from the UK like.
Norwich Union - Insurance.
Abbey Banking - call centres moved there but are coming back to UK.
Powergen electric moved their call centres to India but I think they are planning to go back to UK too..
Dyson - moved to manufacture vacumm cleaners there.
Just a small few of many UK examples.
Hi, Where do you go to get them done ? .
