Have you thought of building a website for your farm business? Perhaps you already have one, but want to manage it yourself. The good news is that you can easily build and manage your own website with the help of some affordable online website builders. You can even purchase a custom domain. Here are four web builders to help you create a website from the convenience of your smart office:
1. Squarespace – Business accounts cost $18 per month for annual pricing with unlimited pages, storage, mobile-optimized, free custom domain, customer support and professional email. The platform offers easy-to-use and navigate templates.
2. Weebly – The business version costs $25 per month and includes a custom domain for one year. The service offers unlimited pages, storage and hosting, SSL security and email through Google Apps. Weebly offers a variety of templates with drag-and-drop edits.
3. Wix – Wix offers business plans for as little as $12.92 per month and up to $24.92 per month with a one-year free domain. Wix offers a form builder, templates and unlimited pages, but has limited storage based on the plan. Wix also offers email with Google Apps for premium plans.
4. GoDaddy – GoDaddy has long been a popular domain provider, and a full-service web host. Business plans cost as little as $9.99 per month or as much as $14.99 per month depending upon the plan. GoDaddy often offers discounts and sales that can lower the cost. The Business and Business Plus plans both offer a free domain, website themes, unlimited pages, mobile site, and business email from Office 365. However, the Business Plus plan offers more disk space and bandwidth, search engine optimization, a social media design and SSL certificate for the first year.
Not ready to manage your website alone? Ask your website administrator or a local vendor about access to a content management system to allow you to make some edits to your website.
