An investment of more or less $500 for a website that gives you a good amount of business afterwards is too small. Think about it.

    Yes – Personally , I think planning is an important part and then practise makes perfect. There is almost nothing you can find on Google (and forums) when you need help and advice on your website. If you practise it and play around a bit (make backups!) is the best way to learn for yourself and be able to rely less on others services and advice.

  9. Hello,

    Many cannot afford professional website designing services. As rightly said by Chris, one can make the best use of the tools available on net and start hosting one’s own websites.
