Free web sites and hosting. Learn how to save money working with a Web Designer.
Here are the essential items needed to purchase for even the most basic rudimentary web site: Site Design + Domain Name + Hosting. There could be other Premium Services needed: Photography, Logo Creation, Copywriting, Research, eCommerce set-up, Marketing, etc. If I create your site, you do not need to pay extra to be optimized for SEO. That is included in the design.
There are no prices on this page because there are so many factors to consider, but the following information will give you an idea of the difference between a site of a couple thousand or hundred dollars.
Web sites are really just computer files of code that tell your browser (Firefox, Chrome, IE, etc.) how to make things look on your screen. Web Designers, like me, create those files and the corresponding photo, graphic and other digital images that go with them. We're paid handsomely! :)
I am able to design your site from scratch and create a distinctly unique web site, or you could choose a template which I will customize for you and add your content. Custom sites cost more because they take more time. I use Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 for all my web work which expedites the process.
The number of unique pages is also a cost factor. A site of 5 uniquely layed out pages costs more than a site with 5 pages with the same layout.
My sites generally cost $300 to $3000 + Premium Services + Hosting. Let's have a conversation about what you need and I'll give you a quote. Email me to start the conversation. I promise I won't sell you more than you need. I'm already telling you how to do it for free.
Here are some other services that can add to the cost of a web site. Some questions to ask:
The files for your web site need to be hosted on a server that makes them available on the Internet. These servers are called Web Hosts and you pay for their services. You will also want a Domain Name which is your address on the Internt, such as www.yourname.com. Hosting and Domains are often purchased together as a package. Domains are about $13 +/-. For Hosting, if you pay on a month to month basis, it costs more than if you paid for a year or more up front. I usually pay for a year at a time and it costs between $65 and $135 depending on the site size.
There are over 600,000 web hosts. Finding a good one can be difficult. After some serious research, I have found a couple I like:
Barter with me. Pay me in services or goods I need or in combination with cash. Let's negotiate. Though we'll trade in roughly equal value, bartering doesn't require cash in hand and therefore saves you actual cash out of pocket.
Choose a template. There are literally hundreds to choose from, including many free ones. They can be customized to be distinctly yours. Visit my Free Web Template Page.
Provide all the content. Write all your own copy and provide all your own photos, logos and graphics.
Do It Yourself! There are indeed free web sites and I'll tell you all you need to know. Visit my Free Web Sites Page.
Allow me to run my affiliate ads on your web site and I'll give a 10% discount. The ads wouldn't be large, obtrusive or offensive.
