Setting up a small business website
« on: 15:21:23, 20/02/14 »
I'm starting a local cleaning business and I need to set up a website. I'm not great with computers/technology so would appreciate some advice on the best software to use to set up the site. I've done a bit of research online and the most user-friendly so far seems to be as it appears to be easy to use. It would be great to know if anybody has used their software before? Or any tips for setting up a website? I'd like to make the process as simple as possible but still create a professional looking website.

Just watch out and read the small print.  A friend of mine set up his website and paid a fee, and after a couple of years, he fancied a change and asked for the server codes to put up new pages.  Only to be refused access, because he didn't own the domain name.  He'd paid a fee to use the site URL, but had no rights to it at all.  His choice was to pay a further fee to update and keep a site that his customers use regularly OR to start over. 
It's nice to be important, but it's also important to be nice.
