When I work for a living, I am self-employed (yup, you guessed it) building and hosting web pages. My company is Pathfinder Web Consulting, where I design, host and consult on webpages. I do quite a bit of travelling around Michigan consulting with customers, and often I spend as much on fuel for me and the car, and for phone calls as the job pays. But I love it, and if I have to, I will take on another job to pay for this job and my ham radio activities.
While qsl.net is free hosting (please donate to them), they have notoriously slow data transfer. On the other hand, if you host your site through me, it will cost you around ten dollars a year for a domain name, and sixty dollars a year for the hosting. And of course, if you have the web page built, web page design will cost you regardless of where you host the site.
So think it over, and if you are interested, send me an e-mail with some details, and I will try to give you as complete a price as I possibly can.
If you are interested in a personal or business page, let me know. Since qsl.net only hosts amateur radio based pages, it will be necessary to find hosting. I will do all I can to come up with a price and design that will fit your budget.
If I cannot help you, I will do all I can to put you in touch with someone who can.
I will not build, host or consult any sites that are hateful, pornographic, demeaning, or militia minded, generally distasteful or disrespective of other people or groups. The world doesn't need any more of this sites, and I will not give them a voice!
