Cheap Websites Basic Design
$199.95 (plus tax)
A fully installed hand-coded website that includes email, your choice of content, and one year of paid hosting.
This is not a low quality CMS (content management system) website. This is a real website hand-made by a professional web designer. Each Cheap Website includes built-in SEO, maximum security, maximum stability, and the website is fully expandable. One of the main differences between my Cheap Websites and my Custom websites is that the Custom websites are custom designed for each individual customer.

The cheap website Basic design has similarities to what is popular on content management systems (CMS). Of the approximately 75 million WordPress® websites online, roughly half of them use designs that are little different than the Basic design. If the page layout is that popular, then it would likely be popular for some non-CMS websites as well.
Three very big differences between the cheap website Basic design and CMSes are  the Basic design typically loads in less than one second (depending on how large the graphics are), while the typical CMS takes five to ten seconds or more (an estimated 40% of Internet users will click-off a site that takes more than 3 seconds to load),  the Basic design's coding cannot be hacked, and  the Basic design can be viewed on most any device regardless of whether or not the device's browser is set to maximum security.
The Basic's style is favored by many small businesses that need to have their businesses advertised online, but who do not need to invest much time or expense on a larger website. The style offers ample white-space for text and photos.

The Basic design expands very nicely to fit extra-wide monitors and multi-monitor setups. Using a browser's zoom, the text can easily be resized for the best viewing on most any monitor. If a design is needed for being displayed on large monitors (i.e. for business advertising), then the Basic design could be a very good choice.

The Basic's design is perhaps best suited as a page for a small business or social group. The layout does lend itself to most any purpose.

 Please give close attention to the items in the screenshots that are marked with numbers. The header is #1 (currently "BASIC DESIGN"), header background color is #2, photo is #3, content title #4, sub-title #5, text #6, photo #7, photo #8, photo #9, name #10, address #11, city and zip #12, phone number #13, your email address is #14, and your copyright info is #15.
 Email me your photo(s), text, and links that you want to be placed in each of the numbered locations. Please tell me which Cheap Website design you are wanting (e.g. Reader Design, Classic Design, etc.). Also include in the email the domain that you own and wish to use (i.e. yourdomain.com).
(For security purposes and peace of mind I strongly recommend that all customers take full personal control of their own domain names. There are many registrars available, but I usually recommend Enom® and NameCheap® because both offer good rates and good service. I can handle the domain for a customer if requested, but I must charge an extra $10.00 over cost per domain name per year for maintenance time. Domain identity protection is available at additional cost.)
 If you do not yet own a domain name and you want me to acquire the domain for you, then please tell me what dot-com domain name that you want, and I will then purchase a one year registration for the domain name. Please check first to ensure that the domain name that you want is not already being used by someone else. If I find that the domain name that you want is already being used, then I will ask you for a different dot-com name. The website must have a domain name for the site to be viewable online.
 When the website is ready to be uploaded to the server, I will email you the DNS Domain Name Server address for you to point your domain name to. If you prefer that I set the DNS settings for you, then please email me the logins for your registrar and I will set the DNS. When the settings are made, for security reasons please change the passwords for your registrar login. There is no extra charge for my setting the DNS on Enom and NameCheap, but other registrars (e.g. GoDaddy®) may incur an additional $20.00 to $60.00 charge due to the registrars being very slow. Please plan accordingly.
 I will have the website and hosting active within three business days (usually within 24 hours). The site might not be viewable for up to three additional days while the domain is propagating through servers throughout the country (almost always the site is viewable within one to three hours after the files are uploaded, but on rare occasions some server somewhere is slow or down). Also, if requested, I will also setup the first email address free of charge.
 Once the website is online, carefully inspect the photos, text, and links to ensure that they are correct. Please email me if you spot an error.
Thank you, I appreciate your business.
