  • Girl, take a look at my websites:  www.stuffformoms.info.  I use Synthasite.com.  I have several links to my others on the first page, Errand Service, Advertising Service and Virtual Assistant.  I used Synthasite for all of them.  It's free and extremely easy!

  • I doubt you will be able to get your own URL for free as you'll need to pay for the hosting. You can make a free webpage at www.geocities.com but you will have geocities in the URL (i.e. www.yournamehere.com -that costs money vs. www.yournamehere.geocities.com -that's free). I use geocities.com (which is actually a Yahoo company) for my website (http://www.capturecapemay.com). I do my own web design from scratch but they have easy site builders and loads of free templates that go along with your package when you purchase a website package. I have multiple URLs purchased through godaddy.com that point to my Yahoo website (http://www.sandtidings.com and http://www.capturingcapemay.com).

  • Wow $25 a year for hosting when I charge $10.00 a year...... The art of webdesigning depends on the professionalism you put into the site, if you want to make money from it, hire a frellancer, some are cheaper than you think, but if the site is just for advertising, then perhaps attempt yourself, but those that do their own site, often get the least hits especially if they have little skills in HTML or webdesigning in general.

  • Attention Pupmom, your site is infected with a virus and spyware, thanks to the google ad you have on your site or any ad on your site. PEOPLE THIS IS WHY you do not use google ads or free website services... Not cool.

  • sbi is my rec if you want to build a site that pulls traffic...

    re: free sites, you can get your own domain name and re-direct it to the free longer version of the free name (NovemberLove gives an example above)...

    godaddy.com is my rec. for domain name reg (plus email, domain name forwarding, autoresponders, etc.)...put diggnation in the promo box at the checkout screen and save roughly $2.50 on a .com registration.
