Weebly 4 Tutorial 2017 – Domain Setup

#hostgator -> MoneyGator – You know you have expectations from a hosting company to offer you hosting for your sites in exchange for your money, I mean that would be the right thing but not here after you spent tens of thousands of dollar with development to create a cool site this guys will fuck it up will just hand your account to an unkown person and hold your site hostage and this is where the extortion beginning and waste of time and money. Not worth it go to another company and be done with it. John, Canada, stave

Okey dokey – here’s the boring part of our Weebly Tutorial (for Weebly 4 and 2017). In this first video, we do the dull part of setting up our domain, our hosting, nameservers, and our Weebly package. I know, riveting stuff, but it’s important if we want to actually make any progress and money with our website. Allow me to quickly explain why we’ve done what we did…

Expired Domain (http://bit.ly/2cQXW8Z): These allow us to get a jump start on the competition. An expired domain is what happens when someone doesn’t renew their domain each year. These domains usually have more authority in Google and are able to rank higher immediately. You can still purchase your own domain if you already have something in mind, but this is a quick way to grow more quickly.

Hosting (http://bit.ly/2dxK5Z6): Even though you can host your Weebly site with Weebly, choosing to host your site elsewhere provides several extra benefits – like free email, access to Attracta, the ability to change your website builder at any time, and you can even transfer (re: sell) your domain much more easily if it’s hosted outside of Weebly. I personally like Hostgator, though there are several options available. I only suggest that you avoid GoDaddy (they’ll nickel and dime you and their customer service is awful).

Hostgator Coupon: UTSEO1 – first month for $0.01!

Weebly (http://bit.ly/2dHkNaT): In order to access all the coolest new features, we have to have a paid account. I decided to go with a business plan here because I am only building this site as an example and this option allows me to pay monthly instead of in 6-month installments. If you don’t need all the fancy stuff, you can go with whatever plan you like. I suggest that you get at least the starter plan, though.

As far as looking at this as a Weebly review, I think that it does have some merit in the world of website builders. It has gotten more expensive over the years, but it has also added a lot of new and more advanced features to make up for it. Weebly continues to be my personal favorite website builder, even compared to things like WordPress. I believe that each has a role to play, and Weebly’s role is that of an easy website builder that anyone can pick up. Weebly SEO isn’t as strong as WordPress SEO, but it’ll work for lower-end competitive keywords.

    Hi Triston,
    Thank you for insightful video. I was about to buy domain name from godaddy/weebly but now I know better 🙂

    You mentioned coupons, but coupon codes aren't present in description. Would appreciate it if you share the code.

    Hi Triston, thanks for sharing the coupon. However, it didn't work on site specific for India ( dot in site). Hopelly it will help someone else.

    I still ended up getting a "baby" account in hostgator and registering a domain name!!
    And guess what, on free Weebly version, they have recently stopped publishing on domain name that is bought outside their site. So I have to sign up for 'starter' or 'pro' services on weebly. Its a bummer.
    Hunting for Weebly coupon now 😀

    When I buy the connect plan I don't get the free 1 year domain why?

    Hi! When purchasing the Pro Plan from Weebly, you get a free domain for 1-year. Would you recommend against using this? Is it possible to use the 1-year free and then transfer the domain elsewhere after the 1st year (I'm guessing using the domain through Weebly after the 1st free year would be more expensive than say Namecheap). I'm not looking at an expired domain as I've got a specific domain name in mind that I feel is integral to my site identity.

    Thanks for the videos!
