Small businesses need to save money where they can, but those savings shouldnít mean you have to settle for poor services or limited features. Having a website used to mean paying costly monthly service fees, but today there are a variety of options that makes maintaining a website more cost-effective than ever before.
I will support any hosting company that you are already using or would prefer to use, but for small businesses starting out with a new site, I highly recommend my hosting company, 1and1. Throughout my years of designing websites, I have worked with several hosting companies and none compare to 1and1 in both price and support. They are the worldís largest and fastest growing web hosting company, currently supporting nearly 6 million accounts. They offer several different account levels, ensuring that you only pay for the options you need. Their data centers have fail-safe redundancy designs ensuring 99.9% uptime. Best of all, they are one of the most affordable web hosting companies around, offering domain names for a little as $6.99 a year and hosting costs of between $3.99 and $19.99 a month. In all, your small business can maintain a website annually for less than $55 in hosting costs. Thatís less than a small, one-time ad in the local newspaper.
And, unlike many website developers, I donít charge additional fees for site hosting or domain name registration. All domain and hosting costs are billed directly to your credit card from the hosting company you chose to use. Should you chose to use my hosting company, Iíll simply receive a small one-time referral commission.
Today, small businesses have more options than ever before for hosting a website and that competition has lead to greatly reduced costs. If you already have a website and would like to evaluate cost savings by moving to a new hosting company or if you would like to learn more about how I can help your small business establish a website, please contact me.
