NameHero recently launched its own website builder to help you get started on your next business idea without having to make any down payment, or even provide a credit card. I’ve been writing about web hosting for years, and I can tell you that no one allows you to have a free trial to kick the tyres, so trust me when I say that this is quite a big deal.
Perfect Timing for a Pandemic
As I’m writing this, I’m sitting at home stuck in mandatory quarantine, with nothing to do. Sure, I’ve been filling my time with Netflix and video games, but I’ve also managed to make some solid progress with my work during this time. I’ve been able to start projects that I’ve been putting off for a long time, such as tending to some plants, and making some long-needed structural changes to my website. If you’re anything like me, this is a great time for you to start work on your dream project as well.
Most people have something they’ve always been meaning to get around to, and the whole COVID situation provides the perfect excuse. And more often than not, that idea will require a website if it’s in any way related to other people. Starting a business? You need a website. Starting a blog? Again, you need a website. And getting started is so inexpensive, it’s a wonder that everyone doesn’t already have their own domain name by this point.
But Free? That Simply Doesn’t Exist!
To be fair, NameHero’s website builder isn’t permanently free. But it does allow you to get started on your site without any upfront payment, and what’s more, without even a credit card. In today’s web hosting market, this is absolutely unique. Other web hosts allow you money-back guarantees (some of them quite generous), but you always need to make an upfront payment. And even if you get started for really cheap and you host for 12-months, it’s a little chunk of change for a project that you still might be unsure about.
With NameHero, you have around a week before you decide whether or not this is a project that you’re going to pursue. Until then, it’s completely free to use, and you can build your website at your leisure to see what it’s going to look like.
It’s shocking, but there are certain web hosts that are actually raising their prices during this time of crisis. NameHero is going in the opposite direction.
Is a Page Builder a Viable Method to Create a Website?
For simple websites, sure. A lot of people just need a few pages, with perhaps a checkout system, a contact form, and some other basic functionalities. The NameHero website builder allows you to choose from thousands of professional themes, and you can build up quite an impressive website with it. Of course, you don’t get the advanced customization and functionality of more advanced systems like WordPress, but a lot of people don’t need all of that.
Later, if you feel like you need more, you can always switch to WordPress using the same NameHero plan that you already have.
In addition, the Hero Builder contains everything you need for a modern website like free SSL, a checkout system, analytics, and more. If this is your first time starting a website, then it’s more than enough for you to get the hang of things and start hosting immediately!
NameHero’s website builder is well timed to take advantage of people’s free time during a period of quarantine, when they’re itching for something to do. But allowing people to start working on their site for free, it drops the cost of making the initial push to zero. So no more excuses. Go and start building your website today!
