Yes it does cost a good amount of money, but its well worth it in my opinion. People want convience these days, so every bit of marketing we do, we display the website in which they can request quotes right there.
Nothing wrong with use godaddy just because it's cheap, it's simple but it depends on what pacakges you choose and I am still learning. The website itself doesn't show your work, your work pictures is what shows who you are. People want simple sites that are'nt jammed with crap. Look at the method of Google.com and Facebook.com very simply and people like that versus clutter and other tacky stuff.
