    Following some advice on here I am looking at changing over to word press.

    My original site is www.cleannsimples.co.uk

    My new one is: cnssouthwest.wordpress.com

    The new one is not yet complete and will eventually have the .co.uk address.


    Thoughts and ideas for the new one are welcome as always, feel free to compare the two and let me know which you prefer.

    :)

    Thanks


    Dave

    You should keep you cleannsimples domain and point it at your new website. Wordpress is a good platform to build a website. If you know a little about the web, get some hosting like just.com or 123reg.com transfer your domain name over to them and build your site with wordpress then you wont have the /wordpress.com.

    If you own the domain name and can change the nameservers I can point you to a free hosting service if you want to save the pennies. Install wordpress through the back end of the host and then work on it. job done.

    It's so much better! You should definitely set up a blog though. Also add seperate pages for each service and then add the pages to a drop down menu under Services. Did you try the cookies plugin yet?

    Yep, site I built for someone about 4 yrs ago I put on this host last yr for him cos he wanted to save some cash and it's actually not bad. Good uptime, fair speeds, well good enough to host a small site on.

    Interested I'll PM

    It's a content management system and your website is built with it.
