    Hi,

    I wanted to use Weebly free but it seems they charge 40$ for domain names which is absurd.

    I just want a very basic website set up. No more than 15$.

    PM if interested.

    You say you want a basic website setup, but then $15.00
    Before I assume anything, what exactly are you trying to do? $40.00 for a domain is expensive, but then again they're providing you more than just a domain.
    You get what you pay for, and in this case you don't want to pay hardly anything, so I wouldn't count on offers jumping at you for this thread. The best thing I can offer is to consider using wordpress, and there are many excellent themes shared here that you can use. The ones I have shared in the "templates/themes" section are all purchased items and new releases, however there are others too, just make sure you don't use one from a warez site.
    Good Luck

    I've already got Hosting with Hostgator so I'm not spending 40 dollars on a domain name with hosting when I can get one for 10 dollars and already have hosting.

    I'm just starting out and want to try and learn how to sell.

    I'm making my own product and just want a basic web page to promote my product.

    If you want to use your own domain, you can install WordPress. It is free, easy to use to install and easy to use.

    Installing WordPress is free and easy. I can give you a hand and get you set up with a new theme if you'd like, just send a PM :)

    If you already have hostgator, just register a domain with namecheap, transfer it to your webhost. Then in your hostgator CPanel go to Favicon and install wordpress from there with just a few clicks.

    I've been using Wordpress for just a few months but I'm really happy with it and is very easy to use.

    OP,

    Use this link to buy $1/year hosting from netfirms. Yes just $1 for the first year. Along with that they offer $150 ads credit you may use to promote your site. They sell domains for $9.95. So for $11 you have got everything you need.

    The $15 needs to cover hosting as well.

    Better use WP for your simple page. It's just cost you effort buddy ;-)
