    I want a Website, but don't know were to start. I'm looking for someone that can build a very professional looking website with features like scheduling, billing etc options.

    Any info that will point me in the right direction would be appreciated.

    I just played around with Front page over the winter time. Got the hang of it, and made my own site. It's not all that professional I know, but it does the trick. I started a new site last winter, but have to finish it this one.

    If you are computer literate, the program is really not that hard to use. Plus you'll save yourself a bundle. :cool:

    do a search online. I personally go with Verisign

    Front Page, I hate that. I tried that about 2 years ago, and gave up

    I made my own, from scratch. Hiring a website design company is very expensive. You can find template sites most likely.

    download Dreamweaver off of Kazaa. Play around with stuff. If you're wanting forms that people enter to submit payments and go to databases, I would suggest you make the pages in .php, and use a MySQL database. Or something with ODBC connections./
