Will that domain be an issue of people do not recognize it? Also, do you own it? Will you be able to renew it?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.tk

http://www.freewebspace.net/free/Fre.../-2Etk/details

your web site is the lowest cost form of advertising you do. you only have one shot to impress the customer. a .tk is not how to do it. if you can not afford $12 for the domain and $10 per month for hosting and email then don't make a site. or go with $10 per year for domain, hosting and email from Google Sites. the problem is you are limited there too like no paypal on google sites

you see me being the customer would look for .tk to find out what it is and after finding out it was another country I did not know of, I would think scam immediately.

Heck, you can get hosting for $2 per month. I agree with TCD, .tk is spammer's paradise. I'm not even clicking on that link.

Didn't we just go through this .tk junk a few weeks ago?

tk should not be a problem. It's all about who you are and what you've provided to your customers. If your long term customer flips out and changes services because of your website, then there are bigger issues currently happening, and its not with you.

I would recommend using the website as a hyper link - Click here for more information is an example. I have weebly, does this affect my credibility? Will people think I'm a scam based on my website, or will they call me first?

Unfortunately, it does affect your credibility. Whenever I see a business site that has "this site built with some sort of free service" I pass. If they're not going to put forth the effort to have a proper site it makes me wonder about all the services they offer. It's an example of having no site is better than having a bad one.

before I read anything, I want to make a post;


I am paying for www.ipage.com hosting.

They offer more than you can imagine, Weebly website building is included if you want it ************ and instead of upgrading your account to get more "tools".... You can cheat the system and create your own if you know how - or know someone who knows how

I save myself over $10/month


My website for example

www.breezelawnservice.ca

with flash, you can create an infinite amount of webpages - so don't pay for it lol

Just pay for the proper hosting and domain name
