If you've always wanted your own website, now's the time to build one. 1&1 is offering - for a limited time - its new MyWebsite Lite package for just 99p plus VAT. For that you get your choice of .co.uk, .org.uk, .me.uk, .com, .net, .org, .info, .eu, .biz domain name (assuming it's not already taken) and hosting for an entire year.
You don't need any knowledge to build a website - it's easy to add text and images to one of the 200+ templates on offer. Themes include weddings, travels, new babies and pets as well as hobbies such as sports, dance or music. You can also add social widgets so people can share on Facebook and Twitter, add YouTube or Flash videos and let visitors interact via contact forms and guestbook functions.
As well as getting a personalised domain name, such as www.jimsphotos.co.uk, you also get 10GB of online storage for the site, which can have up to 500 pages (this is more than enough for most people). If you're using it for a small business, such as a B&B, you'll appreciate personalised email addresses that match the web address.
Sceptical? It's free to try MyWebsite Lite for 30 days, but if you like it, it costs £7 + VAT per month after the first year. You can find out more at www.1and1.co.uk
