    Website, webhosting and landing page question

    This is my first post here so thank you to anyone that reads this. Here is my situation.

    I am looking to add some landing pages to my domain. I've got 2 different web hosting companies right now and I don't know if I can achieve my goal. I started with iPage and had a website hosted there... let's call that aaa.net. Did not like the look of the website so I ended up using a drag and drop builder from another company to redo my website. Enter Jigsy. Let me say that my email is with iPage...all my business cards have this email address etc.

    I then get a marketing guy who suggested that I get another domain name that relates to my specific field. Done. So now I have bbb.com at Jigsy. I do a permanent redirect on iPage for aaa.net to bbb.com. Now he would like me to add some landing pages. Here's where I get lost. I could use a service for landing pages . I am then limited to their templates and I have to pay another monthly fee. What I would like to do is pay someone to make some landing pages for me and host them myself.

    That is impossible at Jigsy though. They don't offer FTP or anything. I have no way to do anything but have the website reside on their server. The only thing I can do there is change my DNS records. Is there any way for me to host landing pages for bbb.com at iPage? I can see all my domains at iPage. www.aaa.net is showing as my primary domain there. Would it be possible for me to have landing pages at iPage for my bbb.com that is hosted at Jigsy?t If so, how would that work?

    Eventually I would like to find a stand alone website builder with a template that is similar to what I have now and move everything back to iPage but in the mean time, can I make this work or should I just use a 3rd party site like unbounce?

    Any help would be very much appreciated!

    Why don't you do some Wordpress tutorials on youtube and then pick you out a simple WP template and go from there with it. Most site builders are really limited but with WP you can pretty much have what you want.

    Don't know anything about iPage anymore but most hosting packages let you have addon domains under one hosting package. So basically you can have two websites hosted on the same server using the same resources of your hosting package.

    But, I may have misunderstood what you're trying to do.

    OP if you need a decent host without breaking your budget try out Hostmantis.

    We use three different hosing companies and have used many more over the years. I would rate Hostmantis as good as it gets with fast servers, very little downtime, awesome support and excellent prices. We have piles of clients hosted with them and have resellers with them and never had any problems with them. We've been with them from almost their beginning.

    They have a 60% off for life coupon now..........TW60OFF

    hostmantis.com

    And we are no way an affiliate with them or any other hosting company but we do appreciate the excellent service they've given us over the years we've been with them. They're one host we never worry about.
