I am currently in the process of writing a short ebook that I will distribute for free to entrepreneurs in South Africa. I am aiming it to be for cash strapped individuals or just people that want to start a business with no capital. The book will covering what they need to know to start and run the business. The marketing, sales and finance sections are complete.
One of the topics I still need to write is about how to go about getting a website. While I do recommend that people that can afford it get one done by a webdesigned, I am aiming at someone who can not afford it. A basic website with a focus on content is much better than no website.
I see that a lot of hosting companies provide some sort of software with templates to build a basic website, which is exactly the type of thing I am looking for. However the one thing I noticed is while they do offer the software for free, the documentation, tutorials and support for those products is lacking.
Can anyone recommend a company that provides something simple that any person with some understanding of the internet can use? I will write a detailed review of the process, as well as a step by step tutorial on how to set it up. For that reason I will be trying it sign up for their hosting solution and build a site myself (I have zero experience in that). The company that I use for the section will be featured.
The company should fit the following bill:
1. Cheap with Domain registration
2. Cheap in their hosting options
3. Provide free software for the creation of the site
4. Known for the exceptional client service
I have faith in South African business, so I am sure there is a company out there that fits the requirements perfectly.
