REVIEW & LINKS TO WEBSITES —
$3000 & went through 3 web designers and did not have a working website, before coming
1 week of Leon's 1st email sent 11/18/13, his website was published,
online & fully functional, by
11/25/13. The main search words that he wanted to be found under, in
an online search are:
" civil infrastructure inspection services" He
was online for 48 hours& coming up on YAHOO's page 1,
number 2 right under a PDF link that was written by calwater.ca.gov.
On Google he is coming up on
page 2, number 14 of about 11,700,000 results. It makes me laugh when
clients come to me &
tell me that their web designers tell them it can take 3-months to be
found in online searches, NOT
was also unknowingly paying one of the large domain companies that
advertise get your Free Website on
the TV commercials & WIX for
hosting his website. A site can only be hosted by one company where
servers are pointed to, his DNS servers were pointed to the WIX servers
so he was paying a monthly fee to Wix.
This big company was billing him $11.34/month for hosting his site.
When I pointed this out to the tech support
person for this company, who we had on speaker phone, I said, "So
you are charging Leon $136.08/year for nothing?
His answer of "YES" astounded
both Leon & me. I voiced my opinion of what I thought about this type of unfair billing,
which I have seen many times over the last 13 years, but there was
no offer of paying Leon back for the year that he
paid for nothing. Be sure that you know what you are paying for. These
companies will not tell you that you are paying
for a service that you are not using. They will continue to take your
money, especially if you have a credit card on file
with them. Leon also just had a charge on his card from them for $39.99
for the payment of his domain name for 1-year.
We transferred his domain name away from this company over to Network
Solutions. I have been selling their domain
names for 13 years. My clients pay $49.95 for a 5-year domain name
with Network Solutions. I pass my Gold VIP
reselller rate on to my clients, I get this discounted rate because
of the number of domains I have purchased, since 2001.
