Tech Thrifty Thursday: A Website Doesn’t Have To Be Expensive
The following is a guest post from my husband’s blog: www.garyfarnam.org for Tech Thrifty Thursday:
Many of the people I talk to about starting their own website or blog think that they can’t afford it.
So my first question is, “Can you afford $1.99 per year for your domain name and $4.99 a month for your web hosting?”
If so, then you CAN afford a website or blog using godaddy!
What is “web hosting”?
Whenever you go to a website, such as this one, bear in mind that the files for that website, such as the main page, etc, all live on a server somewhere (computer). A company that “hosts” the website for you, is called a “web host”.
What is a domain?
A domain is a web address such as garyfarnam.org or google.com. You can only buy a domain if someone else doesn’t already have it. It’s best to buy a domain and a web hosting account together as you can many times get great discounts, like what I mentioned above.
All you need now is a FREE website template such as Wordpress, which is available from godaddy once you set up your new account.
We have personally been using godaddy for years and haven’t had any issues and have had great customer service experiences with them.
So now that you know that you CAN afford a website or blog, the only thing left to do now is signup and share your information with the world!
