5 Useful Tips To Get Online With A Tight Budget
Creating an attractive and functional website doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Here are some tricks to get you started for less.
Deciding to create a website can be intimidating. At first it may feel like it will be an expensive and time-consuming task, but in reality it doesn’t have to be. A major percentage of business is now conducted online, and many of us will find our next career path on the internet too. A website can push your personal and business life into the future, but it doesn’t have to break the bank.
Here are five tips to help you get online without costing the earth:
01. Look for a great sale on a domain.
If you shop around for a minute you will most likely find a great deal on a domain. Think outside the .com for great gTLD options. gTLDs are web address endings that end in creative alternatives to .com and .net, such as .online or .club. You will be surprised how low domain prices go. For example, Midphase is offering .website domains for only $1.49 a year. That’s a huge saving!
- Only pay for the hosting you need.
Many hosting options offer more resources than you will typically need as a beginner. Rather than renting an entire dedicated server to yourself, consider looking into SSD VPS. An SSD VPS package allows you to scale the size of your server up or down depending on your needs, starting at only $8 a month. As your site grows you can increase the size of your web hosting package up to 16GB if needed.
- Use Website Builder to create your site.
Why pay a team of developers when you have the skills and tools needed to get the job done? With Website Builder from Midphase you can create a beautiful and fully functioning website for only $4.95. Oh and did we mention that our Website Builder Essential package comes with a free domain name? This option is great for personal websites, and small sites of up to 10 pages. If you are looking for something like an e-commerce site, be sure to check out our Business Unlimited plan which features unlimited storage and pages plus a free domain name.
- Save money with longer agreements.
With most hosting companies (Midphase included) you can save a ton by agreeing to a longer contract. For example, our Personal Web Hosting package offers over 50% savings just by agreeing to a two-year contract. Just imagine how much you could save if you stretched it to three! When purchasing your domain and web hosting package be sure to take a look at all of the options available for the one that works best for you.
- Last but not least, Coupons!
Web hosting has coupons just like any other industry; you will usually come across a few Midphase coupons if you run a search. We love our clients and encourage them to spread the love! Not only are there coupons, but Midphase clients also have access to our Perks Program. Save major money on everything from SEO software to Sitelock protection. These offers are negotiated inhouse just for Midphase clients. Learn more at Midphase.com/perks.
Now that you know all the tricks of the trade, all that’s left is for you to get started!
