  • Web templates?

    I am setting up my company web site & contemplating using one of the free templates available here (probably #16). Has anyone here used these & customized them out? How did it work for you?

      I can't wait to see what you create. Yea a lot of business owners use them. I put them together so you can get yourself up and running really fast.

        My comp runs windows XP.

        Yeah I'm looking foward to get it running.

        I purchased a package from 1&1.com last night & it said I would get an email with my log in info "shortly" I called today to ask about it they said sorry about that , you'll have it within the hour. Now 6 hours later I still haven't recieved anything from them. I'm starting to belive it may have been a bad choice of web hosts..... Idunno what to think here.

            I went with 1&1 home.... 3 mo free then $4.99 /mo.
            I went with that mostly for the dynamic site creator & also the 120 Gb web space. figure I want more room since it's only a buck more month.

              By the way, some of us were talking about Domain names the other night on the skype cast & how they should be simple & easy for potential clients to remember....

              The domain name I choose was www.charlottecountylawns.com
              It's not up yet but if the service dept. at 1&1 ever get around to it, It will be soon!

              About 3/4 of all my clients are in Charlotte county & the balance will still remember the name..... They are after all right next door to our county.

                  To edit the template you will need an html editor. There are a lot of free ones online. Then you will need to ftp the files up to the server. Unless someone can think of an easier way.

                    What I use is FileZilla FTP tranfer software.

                    It's so easy to use.. it's not even funny...

                    FileZilla

                    If anybody has questions about FileZilla.. let me know.. I am pretty expert with it now.. I use it everyday

                      My new web site is technically up & live though still pretty basic, A work in progress. I still need to get photos & testimonials, up change a few things around & I just noticed a spelling mistake or 2. But here's what I got so far.

                      www.charlottecountylawns.com

                      Man I really need a nicer logo for this page....

                        I like that!

                        Didn't I have some sample photos in there for the photo page? Would it help you to have them there until you can take some of your own or no?
