    Easy/cheap Ways to go online?

    What is a quick/cheap/easy was for a person who does not know much about the web to get a site?

    I found www.bandzoogle.com that seems like it offers a decent serivce. Does anyone know of any other sites that offers somthing along the lines of this, or perhaps somthing better?

    It looks easy enough, although there are limitations to site design?

    Here's the deal though ...

    With Bandzoogle, you pay $14.95 per month for the basic plan.
    That's $179.00 per year.

    If you subscribed to a webhost like (www.cleverdot.com), you would
    pay about $35.00 per year (that includes the domain name too).

    So, in the first year alone, you could use the $144.00 savings to hire
    a real person to design a website that you really want, something unique.
    Even if you had to pay a web master $300 for a website, what you save
    in two years would be worth the price.

    The point of using Bandzoogle of course, is having an easy way for a
    novice to create a website. Perhaps that's worth their hosting fee?
    If their customer service is great, and the features they provide work
    as advertised, I guess it might be worth trying ... they have a 30-day
    trial period, but that seems to clash with the 60-day domain name
    ownership period (QUOTE: "After 60 days of membership you own the domain and can move it anywhere you like")

    ================

    About your site: NRTDESIGNS

    I'm assuming English is not your native language? If it is, you might want
    to have someone proofread your content. And change the <title> line
    from "Home" to "NRTDesigns".

    Dreamhost is very cheap, I am not very sure on what you want specifically but you get a domain with your hosting. The hosting is great and you get a lot of space. I like it a lot. It is $22 your first year for hosting and domain.

    I think they're looking for a webhost that has a "build-it-online" website,
    where a non-HTML person can click some button, upload some images and
    have a website made for them automatically. Bandzoogle does that.
