Description

Every business needs its online presence.

You can use social networks, but a good old domain name with a website is still a very popular way of presenting your products to potential customers.

Your website gives you the opportunity to express yourself. Unlike social networks accounts, you have total freedom and control regarding the looks and features of your own website.

These days a lot of businesses focuses on creating static landing pages. It’s a very practical way of thinking:

  • static pages are generally more secure and faster than their dynamic counterparts

  • they don’t have any moving elements, namely scripting languages, and databases

  • it's almost impossible to hack them by injecting some malicious code 

Online services are getting better and cheaper very fast.

If you know where to look, you can save a lot of money using free services to create a static website.

In this course, I will show you how to create your own website using free tools, resources, and services available online.

It’s not about some cheap web hosting with a lot of downtimes.

No, this is about well-known critically acclaimed services backed by financially strong and successful companies.

I will show you how to create your own website using:

  • FREE resources to launch your website in no time

  • FREE tools to edit your website easily and quickly

  • FREE hosting where you can have your site forever with your own domain

  • FREE certification of your site giving you SSL and HTTPS access forever

Who this course is for:
  • This course is for anyone who wants to set up their own website with own domain name and use it for FREE
