Every business needs a website, but not every business owner has the time, tools, knowledge, or budget to create one. Indeed, if you’ve ever studied the many steps – registering a domain, finding a host, building the site – you know it can be quite daunting. And hire a professional to do all the work for you? Quite expensive.
Fortunately, I have a simple and super affordable solution: for a limited time, Cheapskate readers can get InMotion Hosting Quick Start WordPress Hosting Plan for $99 — a price that includes your own domain, a professionally designed one-page site, and one year of hosting. Note that CNET may get a share of the revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.
It works like this: you fill out a questionnaire telling the designers exactly what kind of site you need, what images you want (they can provide some if needed), etc. You can also request a .com, .net, .org, .us, .biz, or .info domain, and InMotion will register it for you (assuming the requested name is available, of course).

The plan includes a custom email address for your site, and you can also configure an unlimited number of additional addresses.
Once your site is created, you can make changes and add more pages using InMotion’s drag-and-drop toolset. (You also have the option of re-hiring the designer at an hourly rate.) InMotion provides 24/7 phone, email, and chat support as part of the package — one reason the company did.
In the past, I’ve set up sites for small businesses, podcasts and the like. Quite often hosting alone would cost over $100, so getting a domain and E-mail and a fully designed page at this price is indeed a bargain. If you need to establish a web presence and don’t have much time or budget, this is definitely worth a look.
