I am unfamiliar with the google tools, but Yahoo has a really simplified system to create a really nice website. Jut by a domain name from GoDaddy and the go to yahoo small business and take off from there. Word of advice...if you are searching domain names on GoDaddy...if you type in a name and it's available add it to your cart, even if you aren't sure it's the one you want. Then when you finally decide, delete the unused names. What happens is that once you do a web search for the name someone fnds that information and uses it to purchase the name. If you go back later for it then your screwed, so don't let it go until your sure. And pass up up on ALL of the offers from GoDaddy and just buy the name and go over to Google or Yahoo and build the site and host it with them!

Well it seems pretty basic. I just tried out a few thing on it. They also don't need a domain name either (not a good thing really). If you can make posts on LawnSite.com you should be able to make a website using their tool.

If you have any specific questions about it I can walk you through it...or at least try and help.

Thanks for checking it out, Why would not needing a domain name not be good. I've been playing with it some, got a few pic, and a few things about our services.

Well to put it easy...http://www.opensourcetutorials.com/tutorials/Getting-Started/Domain-Names/need-a-domain-name/page1.html

That is a good article to sum it up for you.

Show us your progress...I would like to see.
