SHOULD YOU PAY FOR YOUR WEBSITE?

There are several online venues that offer free websites, such as Geocities. Many ISPs (Internet Service Providers) offer their customers space on the web with their email account. So you might ask your provider if they also provide space for a website. However, the adage "you get what you pay for" comes to mind. The free websites often provide this access because they also clutter one's page with advertising. They can also be slower than sites you pay for.

FYI. In creating a website, try to abide by the 12-second rule. If the page isn't loaded in 12 seconds, you have lost your visitor. Home pages, in particular, ought to be fast loading.
