I have never built a website or owned a website before.

If I want to have my own website, what are the best ways of going about this?

I know that you can hire a web developer or you can use a template maker thing which is DIY. The only thing is, I don't want some crappy free website which has some stupid domain name extension on it and has tons of ads all over it.

Hello Erockbrox, If your willing to spend a little bit of money for your own website and you do not want ads, I would go with https://www.godaddy.com/.

Why I picked godaddy because they have been around for a while, its widely known around the world, has a pretty good DIY for a person, and its priced very well IMHO. Now for not having ads you do have to pay, but it would be a lot less money then hiring a web developer because most web developers charge a lot of money for there time they spent coding.

I went to school with a student that was getting her degree for web developing and she was charging for her time $110 dollars an hour. Now I was floored by that price, but she had told me that what she was charging was cheap as a lot of other people charge more. I hope that my info is helpful for you.

Yeah, I actually checked it out, the godaddy site. I talked to someone there and it seemed to be around $100 per year to have your own domain name without ads.

But what kind of upset me was that it didn't come with a free e-mail and you had to pay for that separately.

And if you wanted to sell something like a shop it was considerably more. Like $260 per year.

Ouch, I did not know they charge that much and it did not include e-mail at all. I also did not know they charge more for setting up a shop. Heck there TV ads don't even say that on there. Doh

I did find another one if you would like, Here is the link https://www.pcmag.com/reviews/wix.

Now it does take you to a PCMag review of said service, but seeing that godaddy had hidden charges, I thought this might be better to see if there are hidden charges before you call. If that web site service does not work for you, they have a list of others you can pick from. I hope this helps. Smile

I could potentially help out. You could set up a virtual web server and just point it to a domain. Right now I pay just $5 a month for the server and $12.99 a year per domain and this hosts both https://zeniea.com and https://halext.org

It requires some linux knowledge to set up and then where you go from there in terms of making the website is really up to you. You could install wordpress and just use their themes and plugins to make your shop or you'd hire a web developer (such as myself) to make it for you.

(The vm service i use is called Vultr)
