Final Thoughts

  • Free or Fee?

    • Paying for your URL & Web hosting gives you more freedom & control over your website

    • Paying for your website services gives you more scalability and all of the “bells & whistles”

    • How much is your club willing to spend?

  • Free website hosting will give you a basic web presence. This is better than nothing!

  • Start Free then decide if you need to move to Fee based
