So you are rolling through you Facebook and see an ad like this. “Get a Free Professional Website.” This brings to mind an old saying “If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is.”
Let’s think about this for a minute. If you have been in business for any length of time, you know that nothing is “free.” So why would a huge company like Go Daddy for example, offer a free website? From what we’ve seen, they offer a stripped down version of a very basic cookie cutter site that has very limited functionality with hopes of prompting you to “upgrade” your basic site. That’s just one way they make their money.
Another way they make money is by putting ads on your website. Companies pay the big boys for “ad insertion.” Almost all free sites contain ads. If not on the actual page, on the back end when you go to edit it. Yet another way the big boys make money off of your free site.
At Creative Web Design Unlimited, we partner with an industry leader that offers premium, affordable, ad-free web hosting. What that means in a nut shell is, your web site looks professional, it doesn’t promote other businesses and you don’t have deal with the whole ad insertion racket.
So what does it REALLY cost to have a website? Our basic business website, starts right around $300.00. Each site is different so the exact price can’t be determined until we have all of the pertinent information. That said, the hosting company that we use has business accounts starting at $10.00 per month. Call us today at (334) 233-4235 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
