Hiya

I'm not registered yet but would like to have a website up and running when i am, problem is i have no idea how to do it! also does it cost buckets of money to do, as i don't have much spare cash and am hoping it won't cost much too do. i realise its something that takes time to do and i'm happy to dedicate my time to it but as i've said have no ideas on how to do it!!

any advice would be great!!

try moonfruit.com

if you can use microsoft word you can use moonfruit to make your own free website which looks really professional.

Good luck.

I use freewebs too. You can fiddle as much as you like before it goes live and then change things whenever you want:) .

Can you use your own domain name with Freewebs?

Yes I have a webs address as well...

The webs address is a freewebs.com address and that's the address I go into when I want to change things.

I bought the Knutsford Childminding address and assigned it - with a lot of help from a friend it's beyond my computer skills :o :D

I can't decide whether to use them or Mr Site. Mr Site is aprox £20 but I can add a one page shop. Not a lot I know but I could add a page of products from my baby signing site and link to the full shop. The £20 a year could be useful cross site promotion.

That's always a handy thing to do... I have a couple of sites and use them to promote each other.

Webs.com is easy for adding Paypal - have you got them sorted yet?

I think it does other payment types as well but I've never checked as I don't need them :D

I gave up on Paypal. :angry: I could use google checkout although I've not looked into it. I use Nochex Merchant account on the main site.
