First good luck with your new adventure. I am also open
for a little bit over a year. Accept I did not know about
support groups or SuN. Unfortunately I went ahead and
signed up for a "package" which include Business Classes, one year free service, web hosting company
and a merchant account. Which include`s your own credit
card terminal. (never touched the credit card terminal,
accept to clean the dust off). Sounded great! I fell for
it now I am stuck with a non-cancelable lease paying
140.00 each month for a period of 48 months. Living
on Social Security Disability and not making any sales
as promised. The stress that I was put under almost
decided this is not for me. Almost threw the towel in a
couple of times. I advise against that route! What I do
suggest is to sign up with Google support groups.
Google even offers a free shopping cart and all the
tools to built a web site free! Reason they are promoting there express shopping cart services. Also
they have every kind of group you can image for support. I wish I knew that a year ago!
Godaddy, advertises the lowest prices, what they don`t
tell you that is you have too sign up for a year, and there
package deal is pretty expensive when you are signing
up for two years. Great support Godaddy has, 24/7 and it is true I called many a time at 4:30A.M..
Take your time do some research and see what suits your budget. I also
recommend Pay Pal. The competition which is going on with the search
engines, I fell that is your best bet. If you get stuck putting a web
site together and want free support from web hosting companies sign up
for SitePointForum. Excellent
feedback for your web site.
