    I have a domain name and a website - Now looking to host it somewhere, please help!

    Hi

    I have a live website running that I used Weebly for. I currently have a free weebly domain name. I want to add on e-commerce but don't want to pay the big monthly fees. I have bought 2 domains (a co.uk and .com with the same name) and would like to export my website elsewhere then add e-commerce on to it.

    Please can any of you wonderful people help point me in the right direction?!

    Many thanks in advance.

    If you want to avoid "big monthly fees", put a PayPal button on it. It won't convert well for you, and it won't generate any ROI...but you'll avoid the fees.

    The fees are an investment if your site is built properly and you'll get far more than you would without them.

    Assuming you can accept credit cards now or can get set up to do that you might want to check out Mal's E-commerce. They do have a free version that is easy to work with and can be added to an existing site pretty easily. Basically you insert a link that takes the buyer to Mal's secure page and the purchase info gets logged into a data base, you are sent an email and log in and retrieve the sales info. It isn't fancy but does work well. It would not be a good choice for someone with hundreds of sales a day but for free it isn't bad. I have used it on several sites for years and have been happy enough with it. They also have a paid version that isn't expensive but does a bit more.

    I'll have a look at Mal's E-commerce but is looks like I'm going to have to jump into the deep end and invest and do it properly.

    Thanks for taking the time to respond.
