I have tried my hardest to try and figure out how to build a website. I joined Vista printcand got ripped off. They took 2 payments from me after I canelled the plan. Can anybody here build or start me off with my own small website. The website is about old directories of south wales. names streets trades etc I have about 40 PDF Files and download after payment. I need home page online store, products, about us, contact us. and pay now carrt payments to paypal. Ive set up a pay now account. Please can anybody just build a small website for me.

You can build it yourself with the right tools. You need to find a reliable host and suggest you check copyright rules.

I don't think you need to go to the US or anywhere else to get a website built. There are hundreds if not thousands of perfectly good developers right here in the UK - me included!

Your problem is, you actually don't want a website as such, by the sound of it, you want an e-commerce platform.

There are plenty available. I favour opencart, but there are others - some free, others with all sorts of price tags. All of them will use a database back-end.

You could also simply use a host providers off the shelf e-commerce site. Most of the major providers can offer that service - or to name just two.

So there are plenty of options. It's just a question of deciding which path you want to take.
