Do You Want Your Own Website?

If you own a business, it’s essential… and if you don’t, then you might just enjoy the freedom of running your own personal blog with the domain name of your choosing. At Digital Depot we’re always thrilled to get people like you started.

We’ve tried some of the advertised services like Wix, Squarespace, etc. The advertisements make it look like anyone (including fashion models) can design a professional site in minutes. From my experience, they’re all a little confining and awkward. I did actually once create a web site on Wix for a client. We had to do a simple redirect from http://www.albanyqualitycab.com in order to avoid extra fees. If you’re in Albany or Leesburg, try doing a google search for taxi service and you’ll notice that he gets top billing. It really helps your business to have a web site and work with Google to get good results. I don’t currently use Wix.

For those starting out, you may not want to pay a monthly fee for hosting. I’m currently using a free hosting service for my clients and it doesn’t cost anything to use your own domain for the site. At Digital Depot we can help take you all the way from obtaining your domain to operating your site. If you’d like to see a website we created recently just for fun, check out http://airlinesafetyvideo.com. It’s running on a free hosting service that doesn’t even have ads (unlike the free Wix page we created).
