    I need to set up a website - any tips please

    Just a simple small business website and have it hosted
    It will be more cosmetic than anything, so just needs to look and work OK for a few months
    But I'm a total rookie and it looks like a confusing and swarming shark pool.
    Any advice would be welcome indeed
    thanks.

    Dead simple, depending on what you want to spend and the name of the site.
    etc.

    .com or .co.uk are the most expensive.

    I used godaddy a few years ago and found them easy enough with their website builder.

    Lots of freebies about..

    Oh well,

    Forget about Brexit then and concentrate your crusade against the Shifters.

    You're very good at that Blue.

    Good luck with it.

    squarespace.com is said to be easy and many ppl on web can assist for few USD THB...

    wordpress.com helps or helped to get it top of google search fast, many free templates just fill out and change colors and fonts

    and

    Website Builders Comparison | Top 10 Website Builders

    But do not forget to choose a responsive theme, as most of ppl watch from phones these days...
    Monday,Tuesday, then it goes WTF !

    I used "cool-page" a simple 'what you see is what you get' program - for my cosmetics and matchmaking website/business in Thailand.

    Very simple to use, you simply drag and drop the images/graphics/text, etc.. then upload.. done...
    It saved me a fortune... then I paid a professional to put the finishing touches on it and credit card payment system (which you need to set-up with your bank) to accept payments online.

    You are welcome to it... I wonder if I could send it to you as an email attachment? or on skype? it's only a small file under 10 meg. (pre-cracked) full version.

    tried to get that cool page from pirate bay but no bastard is seeding it
    if you could send it , it would be great to try !
    I'm not sure, but you may have to zip it first, if its an .exe

    I located it on one of my hard drives - I thought I had deleted it...

    Sent it to your e-mail. If it doesn't go through the mail, there must be another way to get you that file (it's only 7 mb)

    I hope it's as useful to you, as it was for me.

    Fair enough, but the "cool page" isn't "infected" in any way, is it?...

    Pay a (>16-year-old) teenager or student to do it.. probably good value.. and you can exploit them

    I like https://www.nearlyfreespeech.net/
    Wordpress is the standard, but there are other things now like Free Website Builder | Create a Free Website | WIX.com

    I got it thanks
    works good - fully cracked and top version as advertised
    I almost deleted it having a memory like a sieve
    ha hah I though an .exe file ???
    yeah like I'm going to open that ,


    to be honest i hate pre cracked stuff they are fer poofs
    i like spending hours getting a difficult crack to work - re-booting 14 times -etc
    then BINGO !!!!!!!!

    Exactly, I was wary too (I got it from TPB about 10 years ago?)... I thought, no crack to copy paste over original file? no reg-edit entry? pre-cracked? too good to be true..

    I only download from green skull users - and scan all my downloads.. it's clean as my virgin bum bum.

    It's brilliant for getting the basic design - layout of images, etc... was good enough for me to sell my cosmetics in Thailand - and a few other small businesses I had going.

    Of course, my web designer mate - laughed his arse off, asked if my pet-fish (Harry) worked the creativity magic perchance ...

    Just kidding, he did chuckle but that's to be expected...reduced the size of a few images, tweak here and there and it was acceptable (even to his perfectionism)
