It all depends on what you want???? It can be as expensive or in-expensive as you like.....
Carols web site is lovely....Seanny said:I'm totally impartial as to whoever you guys sign up with, but I would recommend that whoever it is provide you with a 'value for money' site. For example, you want a pretty site that attracts human eyes, right? Course ya do, but you should be aware that you also need to design your site for the search engines. The end result being a trade-off between the two. Dawnie, your site is really really pretty, but is totally unfriendly to the search engines. They can see your site title, description and keywords, but none of your body text is visible to them. Your site has been made with a template which gels everything into a series of pictures. Search engines cant see or read pictures, so your whole page of text is wasted in that respect. If you dont believe me, pay a visit to this site and enter your url Search Engine Similator
I believe that all top sites are hand written but I know you guys are trying to watch the pennies so with that in mind I'd recommend www.oneandone.co.uk It's not perfect, but it is pretty good and the results ARE reasonably search engine friendly, costs about £60+vat/year inclusive of webspace, email accounts and a domain name. Check out Carols Inspirations which was designed with the website creator, enter her url in the similator and notice the difference. It is entirely up to each individual to decide who they want to have host and design their site, but do it with your eyes open guys. :wink2:

However my main concern with hosting a web site is keywords - even if its one the web whos gonna find it without me paying out to search engines to through links to my site?
Hiya,techygeek said:I noticed I received a bad rep point after being accused of hard selling on this website, I think if you check my posts I have not pushed anything I do Web design etc in my spare time so I wouldn't want to be inundated with requests for website building etc...
Yes this is a site about nails, but I'm sure 99.9% of you use pc's of which I know a lot, all I am doing is trying to help people out, I am not the one on this site pushing my services that lies elsewhere if you look.
If you already know all there is to know about web design etc... Then don't read what I post.
My reputation as a pc engineer speaks for itself, as I'm sure yours does as Nail techs, I wouldn't bad rep anyone on a subject I know little about.
Like I said I don't want to offend anyone on this site only help, but at the same time I am not prepared to be slated for any comments I have made as they have only been done with the best of intentions.

Hi Lily, yes it's off topic (it was brought off topic by TG) and yes we are in Chit Chat but this post was dragged up from almost a year ago for some reason!Lily said:Hiya Jackie,
We are all pushing our services arn't we?
I can vouch for that!! thanks Seanny XXhe has helped dozens of Geeks here with their websites, and now many of them are finding themselves on the first pages of the search engines for the first time ever.
