Has anyone used “Homestead” to build a business website?
Question by Faithful: Has anyone used “Homestead” to build a business website?
I was wondering how easy it is to build and how good is their hosting? Would you recomend it for an internet business that requres a “shopping cart” for about 80 different products?

It is a waste of time. I built one there – but search engines never found it. You are better using www.bravenet.com or even GooglePage.
Most of the free web hosting pages are ‘closed’ to search engins like Google except Facebook and myspace.
As for a shopping cart, if you are going to do it ‘free’ then you have no choice but to use Paypal.com – any other merchant account business costs 0 to set up, plus a monthy fee, plus a portion of the sale …usually 2.5 – 5%.
Then you have to pay the shopping cart programmers to keep it working, because they are always corrupting (even the expensive ones.)
You might want to try ProStores.com which is linked to ebay and is a ‘ready made’ store that is really cheap, about a month.
