    Someone previously posted a special, for BYC members, who are interested in starting their own website. Due to a horrible firestorm trojan nailing my computer I've lost all the information. If anyone knows what I'm talking about, please PM or e-mail me. The man who was doing this was so kind and even offered hosting for for a very affordable price.

    Hope you all had a Merry Christmas,
    Happy New Year!

    I'm not the one that made the offer but if you don't find him please let me put my name in the hat. I build websites for anyone, another words I do it freelance. I'm very affordable! I started building them in order to help out while home with my daughter, not as a full-time job so I can do it cheaper than most. Here is a couple of sites I've done so you can check out my work... www.blountcountypark.com and www.co.blount.al.us

    I use homestead. It has easy drag and drop templates.

    Homestead.com

    If you do sign up, use Volume904 as the referral. I've had them for years.

    mcg30_40, thank you for the offer. I'm actually looking to make my own website. It'll be a great creative outlet and I can make it exactly as I want. If I change my mind, I'll be sure and let you know though. [​IMG]

    Volume904, I just checked out Homestead. I think it's just what I'm looking for! Is there a location that I can check what web names are available? If I decide to go this direction, I'll be sure to use the referral that you gave me. Thanks for your help! [​IMG]

    Try pairNIC.com. They have web hosting for 5.95, 9.95, 19.95, and up, depending on how large a site you want to do. And 24/7 tech support.

    I have my domain name registered with them ($19.95/year) and plan to build a site there.
