WEBSITE BUILD

DOMAIN NAME AND HOSTING

  • Bluehost
  • Hostgator – simply, the best; inexpensive at under $10/mo and robust (includes WordPress for blogs) – now also includes Constant Contact for email services, too!
  • 1 and 1 is the least expensive at $4.95/mo but few addons
    Gets mixed reviews online, but they work great for me especially for domains and simple template sites
  • Namecheap – domain only

 

FREE SITE HOSTING

  • Wix.com or Weebly.com, Google Sites, or Squarespace for high design but lower flexiblity
