Default Hello!! I'm new to all of this!!

My fiance and I thought about owning a business about 2 years ago. We talked about what we liked and what we could handle. Last year we came up with all the info and stuff and said that we would take on a couple jobs. It worked. We made some extra summer cash. This year we are taking my tax return and his and using it to get some nice equipment. I still have to find a logo and i am having trouble getting a website. This company that just buys web domains for nothing other than funny stupid nothing, has the domain i want and will not even let me buy it. Any help there will be appreciated. Basically I will take over everything in my company and my fiance will do all the hard work. LOL Yeah right he wants me out there doing it together. I dont mind working hard and getting my pretty mani nails dirty.

Oh good.

Also, have you played around with our free logos? You might be able to make something with them and we also have free web templates you can download and edit.

i had a couple created but it looks to much like what is around my area. I was wondering if you could help answer some questions about my website. I have godaddy domain and godaddy host and i want one of the web site templates you created. I aready uploaded to my computer and unzips the file. Now do I have to put everything seperate on my page or is there a way that all the information i want through the txt. on notepad for my index just pops up. I AM DEFINATLY NEW TO THE WHOLE WEBSITE THING! I have at this website thing for hours wait days and im learning but still want to know some shortcuts. As for my logo. I didn't use one of yours but I will still show all off.

Nice logo designs!

As far as the website. Let's keep this simple. Can you upload the files to your domain first and show us what you have? Then we can get into editing it.

When I go to http://www.rclandscaping.net/

All I see is this. "This is the future site of RC LANDSCAPING in NW Indiana

Feel free to contact us at rclandscaping@ymail.com"

If you don't see images that could be because you didn't upload them or they are not in the proper folder.

If I can see the page, I can give you more help.
