You’ve decided to start an online business because you’ve seen the many ways the internet can make money these days, but you don’t have enough money to get started. How can you proceed? Is it ever possible to establish an online business on a shoestring budget?
The response is “yes.” First things first, look for free domain names. Since the market for the internet has become too competitive, many businesses that are considering using the internet for business purchase domain names. Fortunately, very few businesses still offer free domain registration. The majority of these offers are typically of a promotional nature. Companies that accept this offer will assume the role of administrators for a predetermined amount of time. They will use their banner on your website during the time they manage your domain. If you’re just starting out with a small budget, this is a good deal. But as your business expands, you can opt out of that arrangement, purchase your own domain, and pay for hosting on a monthly basis.
Don’t use the website if you don’t want to pay $20 to $40 per month for it. Look online right now for businesses that will host your website for free. Before agreeing to receive a free domain, be sure to read the dotted lines carefully. There are a lot of deals out there that might or might not work for you; pick the ones that offer the best value. For instance, some web hosts do not compel you to include a banner on your website. Others will also completely remove the banners for a small annual fee, which still pales in comparison to paying someone to host your website on a monthly basis. Others, on the other hand, will only manage your website for a few months before charging you a monthly fee to take over the domain or disable it.
