If you're a web designer, or know one that doesn't charge the earth, please get in touch.

I'm just starting up a business, so really don't have a great deal of money to spend on a website, but I do know I need web presence.

I'd appreciate any recommendations. smile

Oh, I also need a logo design too.

My DP is a freelance web designer and also does logo design. If you have a rough idea of what you want and/or budget in mind he could give you a quote or whatever and show some examples of things he's done in the past.

Feel free to pm me rather than say on the thread if you'd rather smile

Thanks so much to you both - such a fast response. smile

I'll take a look at the websites you've recommended Melissa, but I'm not too savvy, so would be worried it would end up looking crap!

BeGood, I'll be pm you now. Thanks again.

If you need help with Wordpress, I can point you in the right direction or set it up for you - completely free as i'm trying to build up a portfolio at the moment. PM me for more details.

Hi I am self employed and did my own website through 1and1. I am a total technophobe and I managed it, very cheap, you get emails for the same domain too. The website is only the first part, there are hosting fees, search engine optimisation and other charges that you'd have on an ongoing basis whoever does your website so you need to shop around.I pay about £85 a quarter for the website design bit, email addys, simple search engine optimisation. They have a very good helpdesk and are very patient with someone like me who sometimes doesn't even know the questions I need to ask to get the information I need.

Thank you all for your response, which is really appreciated. smile

I have managed to find a relatively cheap agency based in Cornwall, and so far so good. Should things change down the line, then at least I'll know who to call on.

I went on webs.com set up a free website and then it's easy and professional looking to create. You can anything and for few pound you can create your own domain

I have already registered my domain via Network Solutions and I am getting webmail at me@domainname.com but now I need a hosting system, to transfer the domain to the host and pay for that and a simple front page that doesn't say "under construction" or whatever.

Are vidahost any good?

They are good. I don't know how expensive they are but they won't rip you off!
