Can you guys give me some info. on starting a website. I have read about Domains and Hosting, and it is confusing. Can I get all that from one place, or does it have to be from others. Also I am looking for something cheap. I saw some saying 4.99 a month at 1&1.com. Is that a good deal, and is the domain and hosting included ? Help, I know nothing about this type of thing. I do several cakes a month, and don't have alot of money to spend on one, but I thought I may actually drum up a little more business this way.
There are lots and lots of free ones available and from what I've seen, you can get a nice looking website from them.
I use register.com. YOu can get 5 pages for $4.99. I have 20 pages for $14.99. All you need is a computer and lots of time. I had my first 5 pages up and running in just a couple of hours.
YOu may need to buy your domain name and register it, which will be an add'l fee. But it really takes nothing to get a site started.
Has anyone used 1&1.com. I saw it on several other sites, just wondering which is the best for the price.
i use freewebs, its really easy to set up and FREE!
I have 1&1. It was easy to set up and use. My domain name and everything I got through them for 3.99 a month for the small pkg. You only get 5 pages and 1 photo album, but that may be enough for you. I upgraded to the 9.99 a month pkg to have more pages and more photo albums.
Registered my domain name for $10 and they have hosting packages that start at around $100 per year. They are SUPER friendly and more than willing to help where they can. Hubby used them for a website for a non-profit hobby he does, and already registered my domain for my cake business so it's waiting when I'm ready for my site.
