Your owm Web site?

Posted by SteveC50 (My Page) on

Do any of you have their own web site w/ domain name? I'm thinking of getting my own domain name and a 5 page web site. It's going to cost me $20 US a month. Is there anything I should know before I shell out any money? This will be my own Web address and not a web page on a site.
Thanks for any help,
Steve C.

Steve, I have my own website. My isp gives me 100 mb of webspace. I made a webpage using some of my space for a friend who had an antique shop. For $8.95 a year I bought a domain name for her. Actually I guess it was more of a forwarding service. You could type in and it would go to her site, but the address in the address bar was my address. Anyway, wasn't bad for such a cheap price. She went out of business so I gave up the domain name.
I have lots of pages now for myself and my son and still haven't come close to using the 100 mb of space!

Do a lot of comparison shopping there are some really good deals out there.

It is very nice having your own domain. You get the email addresses you like and I have quite a bit of fun with my website.

I use they have several package deals and I've been very happy with them over the last 3 years.

I think you can find something for alot cheaper than $20 a month, there are some for $7.95 a mo.

have fun

Hi SteveC -- The reason most people get their own .com is to appear to the public as a legitimate business or organization. In the business world someone using a "free" site isn't looked at as very serious - don't want to ruffle any feathers but that's how business people view them. And $20 per month sound average. I pay more. If it's a true business, then that $20 is a business expense toward advertising, etc. And realize you get what you pay for still holds true in computer service - so check them out. HTH :0)
