    Hey that looks good for your first... Hell my first is for my other business. I opened it about a month ago and I think I may sell out of the lawn business.

    So what branch? Got to be Marine or Navy with those Tattoos???

    Good Luck

    Their is a program that you download that you can build your website on and get your domain name if its still available and then you pay like 5$ a month for them to host it,you design your own site using thousands of their samples and you can mix and match and basically do anything you want,now to get it to go to place's like google you would have to pay like 80$ a month.I didnt do that yet but i will once im up and running...got to watch the budget.The important thing for me was to get my .com name and atleast get on the web for now,if someone sees your website on a card or your trailer its an easy way to see what you do.besides i think more people will use your .com from seeing it somewhere alot more then they will just doing a search for lawn care on their computer...besides more important to me right now is the walk behind mower that i need to get because my new lazer z 60" aint getting through no little fences :laugh:

    Dave, Looks like a good web site to me. Can you post the web address where you got your information. Also, do you rent your domain name from the hosting company or do you own it. I was thinking if you rented your domain name they could always raise the fee and after you get really established maybe in a few years they might want you to pay $100.00 a month and what could you do, because everybody now knows your web address. Just my thoughts,

    Thanks
    Matt.

    I havent had a chance to look into this, but it appears to be totally free from windows...

    If someone has a second...maybe they can check it out and fill the rest of us in....

    I took a few minutes and grabbed a domain name, but thats as far as I got...
