I haven't looked into it recently, but last time I did, yes they did use methods that did allow google to index it, but at the time, Bing (and therefore yahoo) couldn't. They may have (hopefully) gotten that changed on one of the two ends so that it indexes well. I had done some tests before on a few sites using Wix, did a search for all the results on a domain, google was listing them, bing just listed the home page. So you may want to check before using them.

Check out justhost.com you pay for your domain name. (Web address) and use the free weebly site builder on the cpanel. Super easy!!! I want to say I paid 85 for the year and I can change anything at anytime myself.

Glad my two acronyms- SEO and OCD- can be of help...

2. While $6/year is quite the bargain for what amounts to your 24/7/365 marketing vehicle, I question the legitimacy of the host and wonder about their reliability. When you've recommended them before, they had 2,391(!!!) other sites sharing their actual host domain IP, including adult content sites. Now, I see they're down to 408 other sites sharing their primary business IP. That's just...uncomfortably odd. For very simple reasons, I can't find this type of scenario on any of the legit, well-known hosts. For $35 a year, is it really even a question?
Tony,

If you were a solo LCO and needed a website, and you had smaller budget $200-400, what host would you use?

Sorry, gulfjoe, I didn't see that you had posted this question.

For hosting only, without question, I would go with ASmallOrange.com. They are now my primary host, with one other that I use for ecomm sites that require redundancy and fallback.

I've used, or worked with, dozens of hosts over the years. ASO just does things very well and their WHM/cPanel admin environment is intuitive and their support is fantastic.

With that budget, I would go with a good host, Wordpress, and Studiopress' Genesis Framework and one of their themes.

Feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions about the above.

I had a lot of success with Web.com. The setup if free but there is a monthly fee for hosting it.

Give me a call and I'll fill you in. 240-277-o13o (Rob)
