If you’re planning to wait for the builder you won’t need to purchase hosting or a design! Everything will be pre-installed for you to get up & running with just a couple of clicks (or taps if you’re on a tablet/mobile). If you choose to purchase a stock photo and domain name (mysite.com) to reserve for your website I won’t stop you.
It’s going to be a few weeks now before I can renew and transfer the domain, but I’m going to be hard at work to create a free turnkey solution based on WordPress multisite! You can read more about it at this link.
Free sites will be a bit limited in storage & features but I have 100+ mobile friendly designs available! There will be premium upgrades up to no more than $50 – 100 per year including additional storage, premium designs and the ability to sell digital only products with Easy Digital Downloads! Set up will be fast & easy, even if you’ve never set up a website before!
This hosting store network is a bit more complicated as there are many steps included to getting a website up & running. I’m afraid the lowest priced package I can offer next year will start at $180, as I will be putting on a sale that should last the entire year of 2020! More details will be available in early 2020.
The winter lasts too long and I’m otherwise unemployed due to autism so this will give me something to do. I’m planning to renew the domain around the calendar flip for transfer in mid February! It looks like the next major version of WordPress will release in March so I’ll be ready! I can probably start offering the free sites asap with a few paid add-ons, and the premium plans will become available in the summer (after July 4th).
