A lot of my readers ask me about getting a website. I wanted to share an offer for web hosting that I personally can vouch for, because my site, cake-business.com is hosted there: 1and1.com. They are so confident you’ll love their services that you can try them free for one year.
I’ve mentioned both in my newsletter and on my blog, the importance of having a website for your business. As you probably know there are some great no-fee tools out there for creating sites including weebly.com and wix.com and many other platforms that make creating and maintaining a site so easy. These services enable you to get online easily without the expense. The downside to the no cost providers is that you don’t control the domain name and sometimes there are advertisements embedded in your site.
For those of you who are ready to move beyond the no cost web hosting providers in order to have your own domain name, this offer is running only for three days at 1and1.com.
The last time they ran this deal, I signed up and told many of my clients. Hosting Service is $0.00 for an entire year. If you want to keep your site after one year the cost is $4.99/month. ( a great price) I love this because there is no risk. You have a year to get a professional site up and running, get Google to start indexing your very own site, and see for yourself if the investment is worth it.
This opportunity also includes $75 dollars in vouchers for pay-per-click advertising on Google, Yahoo and CitySearch — a great way to try some advertising with no risk.
If you do sign up, drop me a line in the comments. I can post some tips on how to get the most out of your new website!
The offer is located on 1and1.com and is called the Home Plan. Remember, it only runs for three more days. (Monday Aug, 31)
If you’ve already set up a website at your own URL, I’d love to see it and I will post it to my blog.
