A friend told me about this deal, and I thought I'd share.


Is offering 3 years of hosting free, which is normally $29 a month. They also offer domain name registration for $5.99 a year. The promotion runs through Jan 21.

*This is not a paid endorsement.* :D

Sounds like a great deal but I did notice that you have to use one of their templates and their software for uploading. That means you can't tailor your site to what you want. Although, I might be wrong....

I think they're just available for your use, not required. I could be wrong, but Earthlink has that "feature" too. I've never used their templates though; always done my own.

Just wanted to let you know that this site, and the one artist website I have opened from this site, do not load properly on my computer... a MacIntosh. So, for me, and possibly all Mac users, it seems anything from 1and1 is unreadable and unusable. I have very rarely encountered this kind of page opening problem on the web... and usually at sites that are created by amateurs and have not been tested across all possible servers, browsers, and internet connections.

Hi Nina! :D

Nance, thanks for the note. It uses XML, but I know nothing about Macs, so don't know if that's it or not. Good point, though. Thanks.

I just got one from here.
I also registered a domain name with them.
I am sure it is not active yet. I have not put anything on it.
But, This will encourage me to do what I have been wanting to do more of.
My new domain name is pa-pleinair.com
If that doesn't get me out and painting, nothing will.
I am very excited about it.
