Free jewelry website, with free jewelry website templates: too good to be true? Depends on how much control you want over your jewelry branding image.
Free websites come with a hidden cost, and for most free website hosting providers, that means:
The two best free jewelry website hosting companies are Wix.com and Webs.com. Both have super professional looking website templates you can customize to your needs.
The only difference between the two hosting companies is that one offers free flash templates, and the other offers free HTML templates.
Webs.com offers free hosting and the use of their extensive HTML templates (over 300 customizable designs) for creating your own website. You can upload your own logo, adjust colors and text sizes on their templates.
If you opt for one of their paid packages starting at $3.75 per month, you get more:
The only thing you have to watch with your account on Webs.com is how much storage space you get per month, and how much bandwidth you can use per month.
Wix.com offers free flash based websites that are fully and easily customizable. You don’t get your own domain name with a free account, but you do get to play with all the tools and customization options that paid accounts get.
This is a really great way to try out different layouts to see what works best for your business. While there aren’t any specific jewelry website templates available, there are several artist portfolio website templates that should work nicely.
The best part is, if you find their services to be a good match for your company, you can upgrade to a premium account at anytime, for as little as $4.95 per month.
That’s actually what you would pay for normal website hosting per month, but with Wix, you get free customizable Flash templates to use!
Another advantage is that they have an entire suite of website analytics tools built into their service, so you can get into tracking your visitors right away or start an advertising campaign with google.
Good luck choosing your free hosted website! As you have probably already realized, there really is no such thing as a free lunch….
