Looking for a great site that is free to build a web page or a full website. Then try Webs.com That is where I have been doing all my pages I have put on this site. Best of luck.

Hi guys! from my personal experience, if you are creating a website for long term business please make sure create in your own hosting account. There are a lot of possibility your hard work go missing on free website programs. Have great weekend guys!

I tend to agree with Rammesh about the long term business.

Free site are alright if you don't mind their ads being on your site. Some will only let you have a certain number of pages.

You can get useable hosting of your own for under $100/yr from many different services. Doing this opens up many avenues to earn more income than using the free sites. It's best to find hosting in the country you're in, so that uploading or working on your sites is faster. Many hosting services offer some form of drag-n-drop sitebuilder similar to what the free services offer to make building your own site simple. Some hosting companies, such as the one I use allow you to refer new accounts for referal fees - mine actually pays more for getting them a new member than my annual hosting costs me.

Once you have your hosting account and domain name, you'll also have email addresses that use your domain name, making you look more professional and helping with branding.

I started building a portfolio on webs.com a couple of months ago and found them easy to use and you have a lot of choices for graphics, etc. You can also purchase a domain name through them and personalize your sites.

As for my business websites I use a paid hosting service. I feel my accounts are safer with them. I'm not saying the free ones don't have security but when my business is involved, I just feel more secure and it really does look and feel more professional.

My web host isn't one of the huge sites and I have a good relationship with one of the partners. He's fantastic, always responds to me quickly and at times has given me help/advice, the rates are reasonable and he does offer commissions for referrals.

My vote goes for a paid service for your business. I think you're better off all the way around.

Hi Phyllis,

Yes, I agree that a paid service is better and generally comes with good support/customer service. Better quality tools as well.

I have my blogs hosted...makes a big difference. I don't know about you guys, but I was told that Host Gator was the cheapest. I shopped around and found a different company that offered more bang for your buck. So I went with them.

@Phyllis, what does your hosting come with? I mean like auto-responder, url rotator, domains, unlimited email, SEO tools, TE's, unlimited bandwidth...that kind of thing.

I always find it interesting to see who offers what and which services are reliable.

**If you are one to surf TE's or login to a number of accounts, you can download Roboform for free. It saves all your logins so that all you have to do next time is click the icon, select the site and it does the rest for you....I really like it...just make sure you write down your login details, because like speed dial, you tend to forget.

Melissa

It is good to see we all grow and learn what is best for our business. Yep I have a blogger blog The last post on it says I moves on to a hosted blog. That one I use for two reasons: to have a place to host my articles and to learn about affiliate marketing.

Moved on to affiliate marketing and the wisdom there is that you need your won website with "capture pages" with autoresponders. Thinking maverick I did not go with Aweber but a private label of it and it worked well.

Learning from my great grandfather I have become like the hardware suppliers for the Gold Rush. Not everybody struck gold but everybody wanted a shovel or some other tool to work their dream.

We all grow. We all learn that it is more than just putting up a free blog and writing about what we love. Growing is winning.
