Good evening everyone!
I'm in the market for a website. I'm in the process of getting a vendor's license for post so I can sell cakes. I'm not fully ready to start my business yet, but my name is available and I want to get my claws in it before someone else does.
I'm not code talented. My husband is in school for it, so when he learns it, he will be designing my site. But until then, I need a site with some simple, but professional looking templates for a good price (hey don't we all? lol). Oh, I don't know if they all do it, but I'd like an email at firstname.lastname@example.org just to look professional.
I've been looking at citymax and godaddy. I used to go through freewebs when I was a wedding planner, but I think they are too plain. Who did/do you go through or who would you suggest?
Take a look at the company I use www.mysite.com it was really simple to set up. If I can do it anybody can. they have several templates to choose from and great tech support. It costs me $60.00 a year which I think is really reasonable.
I use Yahoo SiteBuilder. It's around $13 a month. I like being able to call Yahoo customer support whenever I have questions. They are very helpful!
I've built sites for two of our businesses on GoDaddy. Basic, but works great, reasonably simple to use and pretty much never goes down. ::knocks on wood::
I'm thru GoDaddy.
I use yahoo. They have great support and easy to use sitebuilder. I have had so many compliments from other established businesses in the area about how professional my site looks. If you pay month to month, it runs you about $13, but if you pay for the whole year, it breaks down to about $10 per month. It comes with your own domain name also.
i use vista print. it is about $22 a month for my service but it is as little as 4.99 a month depending on what you want.
I use wix.com
You can check out my website if you like, and on my links page I have the link to my web-builder's website. He's awesome.
Wow, there's a lot of different places people use. Seems like GoDaddy is the majority. Guess I got a lot ahead of me research wise. Thanks so much for the suggestions!
Kitagrl- I LOVE your site!! I did look at their site, and while it's a little out of my price range at this second, I already bookmarked it for future reference. They did an awesome job!
I think I'm going to have to do some research before I just go with the first thing I see. I know the term "you get what you pay for." Except for the officelive. dsilvest- I looked at that. It actually looks pretty nice. I think I'll have to research them more!
Thanks again everyone! So far, looks like GoDaddy is pretty popular with yahoo. Anyone else?
i designed my own...but I host with 1and1.com. Been with them for almost 6 years. I manage everything through them...photo gallery, email marketing, all of the techy nerd stuff.
It's all inclusive and cheaper than most listed..and they have a bunch of templates so you could be up and running in an hour. Or you can upload your own, like I did.
Honestly, CityMax is WONDERFUL. It's about $127 every 6 months and they give you EVERYTHING you need to make it successful--no HTML skills required. Take advantage of their no-obligation 7-day free trial. And if you'd like to see what my site looks like, feel free to visit The Clean Bee Soap Co. www.cleanbeesoapco.com
I have used webs.com and am currently making one on wix.com I have a friend who uses bludomain.com They are a little more, but are freaking AWESOME!!
Awesome info, thank you to all!!!
I have just been reading the threads and am wondering which sites are compatible with Google Adsense. I found out yesterday that my Vistaprint website does not allow Google Adsense ads to be put on the website. Anyone any sugegestions? For those of you who have had Vistaprint, could you please tell me if I can keep my website address if I go onto another host?
