I think that first you should try with a free website, for example Wordpress or Blogger, that in my opinion are pretty easy to use and to customize. If you can't figure it out, you could ask someone to set it up for you, and once it is settled i think it will be esier to use.
If your firm is well known then you should probably buy the domain...

Glad to hear you bought a domain! Even if you're just starting an online business or blogging for fun a domain name is cheap and makes your visitors and potential clients trust you much more than a free hosted website ever will. But, like Amy said, if you're just starting on the online side of things, platforms like Blogger, Wordpress or even Tumblr are also worth a look since they cost nothing. Now that you have a domain name, you can register the same domain on the platforms mentioned and advertise / drive traffic to your main site or business.

That is great! I haven't purchased one in a long time, but they are invaluable as a business person, no matter what the use. I have thought about purchasing another domain, but not sure about it yet. Congrats and good luck on your venture!

I think godaddy is a credible site and offers cheap domain and web hosting. There are other offers out there which you could also compare with godaddy. You could also try the free websites and those with free trials, explore all options you have for you not to waste your money ^_^

Yes! Godaddy is the very best place to get everything you need to build just about any kind of sight you want or need. They have excellent customer service and the best prices. You can no just about nothing about web-design and have it all or you can be all kinds of technical and make amazing things. You made a good choice, don't get frustrated and make sure you social network that site like crazy!! Hope to click on it one day soon! Enjoy & good luck!

I've paid for a website -- well, three now actually. There are some sites that bundle the site with the actual domain -- Squarespace for example.

My first blog was at blogspot when I was about 13 years old. Then I bought a domain a year later but I couldn't keep up with it. It was really cheap since I didn't need a whole lot of space. So, I would suggest to first start it off with a free web hosting site and with that, expand your market. It is not worth it unless you already have enough clients that will actually take the time and look around.

There's something new on the block. Medium - https://medium.com/about/9e53ca408c48. It seems user friendly and properly functional enough.

A very hardcore blogger moved from his .ca domain to this so it must be pretty attractive.

Hopefully this helps.

Having your own website is pretty cool but, as someone else mentioned, wordpress is really good for people who are just getting started. There are tons of free layouts that you can choose from and it's easy to manage. An actual site can give you even more freedom, but it comes with a whole new set of problems.

It's normally 9.99 for a year .. Still not a lot but not something I wanted to pay to try.. I am really pleasantly surprised ...the website builder was on promotion to so I could makes a website in a matter of minutes.. www.cohalnaturals.com is my website .. Its rough at the moment .. I do need some better product pictures, and there is some work to do but temporarily works great for me.

I actually bought a domain from namecheap for only 50 cents for the first year! Just watch out for promotions, domains get really cheap. Learning html isn't to hard, so I recommend it over their website builder.

Well you can have a free mobile and desktop compatible website at mobidart.com, you don't have to do anything because they will set it all up for you...

jubvman
02-12-2014, 06:01 PM
All depends on your use for the website.. If it's a personal blog, then just use a free platform such as wordpress.com or blogger, weebly, there's loads to choose from.

On the other hand, if it's a website business then please don't use a free platform since it will look very unprofessional. Get a .com from GoDaddy (if the sale has finished just look for domain coupons on google). But keep in mind that you will have to pay for hosting also, not quite sure how much GoDaddy charge but I currently pay £60 a year with another hosting company which is actually cheap!

I also recommend using wordpress with your website (different from the free platform).

Apart from this you will also need:
Privacy Policy
Terms & Conditions
Theme (some are free but a lot cost a small fee)
Other graphics (logo, header, favicon etc.)
Stock images (don't underestimate this cost, if you use stock images regularly it will cost a lot!)


That's all I can think of right now, if you need any help with specific issues just PM me. :)

I bought my domain and hosting from a local web hosting company (I don't live in the U.S). It cost $90 for year, which translates to about $7 a month. I did want to try out GoDaddy, but since it was my first time, I decided to go local, as it would be easier for me to seek customer support if I run into any problems. I would definitely look for promotions on GoDaddy if I'm looking to purchase a domain and web hosting in the future.

You can go ahead and buy. If you still need to blog with Wordpress or any other platform, there is a feature now that you can use to install your wordpress script. Godaddy offers are really good but buy only if it is necessary. There is no need to buy a domain and not use it for a whole year let someone else utilize it.

I have owned a few domain names for several years now. I pay $15 for hosting and one domain name per year. This is the cheapest I have ever seen and I get coupons for free domain names almost 3 times per year.
I don't really use it for something useful but maybe some day I will.
If you have an idea of the name for your business, go ahead and get that domain name.

I like Go Daddy for buying domains, but I also use Wordpress and Blogger. I'm rather addicted to Blogger to be honest, I find its really easy to use! I think when I am building a business site I prefer to use Wordpress because of the layouts.

If you have no idea how to do it yourself you are going to have to pay one way or another. Might as well go the easy way and use Go Daddy.

Don't pay more than 10 dollars for a domain. Hosting on the other hand, pay what you can afford. The better your hosting, the better your site will perform.

owesem75
02-23-2014, 07:43 AM
I got mine for $4.88 for one year. I thought it was the cheapest, when I read one poster saying he got his for only $2.95. I should have checked some more before I made my decision.. although I think this is relatively cheap already.. hehehe :)

02-23-2014, 10:53 AM
A proper designed website by a professional web designer will always look better than one of those free websites and leaves a good impression of your business but the domain really shouldn't matter too much as long as it is easy to access and memorable.

What do you guys do with your websites? Aside from business, blogs and ad revenue I mean. I hear a lot of people often namesit on certain websites and sell them when they get big. Do any you buy and sell websites/domains? Sorry if all this sounds largely uninformed I was just really curious if online real estate is in anyway similar to physical real estate.

You shouldn't pay for it. It's not worth it at all yet. Try Wordpress instead!

levis_88
02-24-2014, 11:34 AM
i totally agree! i mean if you can get it by free then why spend, right? there's mobidart.com for example, they provide free mobile compatible website for free. they will provide you original content for your homepage and provide you domain as well. am just saying, use this kind of opportunities =)

pr0xx1d
02-24-2014, 11:24 PM
The question is not if you can get it for free or not. Of course you can. However, how much are you willing to sacrifice in looks and functionality for this being free? That is what you really must decide at the end of the day.x

The value of a website name is the age and the number of follow back links it has. You can ourchase some for a couple hundred US dollars.

Expect to pay between $300 and $1,000 for template customization. The cost varies depending on how much work you want to be done – such as adding a header image, moving the logo location, creating a fixed navigation bar, changing the overall layout design, etc. CUSTOM WEBSITE DESIGN (cost $5,000 – $10,000+)

Yes, having own domain name is important for business image and reputation. A wordpress blog or a website in the wordpress subdomain looks more like a blog than a professional business in my opinion. A domain isn't that expensive, I think it is really worth the investment :)

The amount you'll pay: SEO expenses change per organization, yet it is one of the more pricier costs of anything related running a site. You can hope to pay a forthright cost (likely somewhere in the range of $3,000 and $9,000), notwithstanding a month to month upkeep charge (roughly $200 to $500 every month, all things considered).

For business use, you should have a actual website with a domain.
If you do not know the code, css ... use shopify platform. It's easy to design a beautiful site, any body can do it.
Cost to purchase a theme around $160.
Only two working days, you have a new website.

Originators can charge content creation continuously or by venture: $50 – $80 every hour. $250 – $500 least charge per venture. This may incorporate at least 3 pages, and extra pages will be a marginally less expensive. Logo or marking configuration will be about $100 – $1500 relying upon the degree of the marking structure you need.

Pricing varies widely depending on the size of your site and the features and functionality you need, but in general, a simple website can cost between $500 and $2000. If you hire a pro, be sure you are clear about what you are buying. Spend some time shopping around - and don't be afraid to ask questions.

I think it depends …

case-1

if you have programing skills then u no need to pay .. even u no need to ask this question because you will build site as you need..

case-2

if you don't have programing skills then you will pay for a website .. how much you will pay it depends on what type of website you want .. i means what functionality you want in your website ..

-static sites are cheap

-dynamic sites need more money (website cost directly proportional its functionality )

hope u get my point .

Goodluck :)-

For competent, experienced web designers that did list their prices, we found the going rate in 2021 to build a modern, professional small business website was typically $4,000-$10,000 but could be as much as $20,000 (or more) depending on the number of pages on the site and the amount of customization required.
