    My main goal is to sell my product onine. From the research I have done my options are to create the website myself or pay a company to host my site.

    Some issues with creating it myself are the web programs are expensive, require higher system requirements than my macbook has, and may require programming knowledge that I do not possess.

    The hosting option seems like it gives you the technical assistance you need to get the website going, allowing you to focus on your business, bu it costs a certain fee per month.

    I am fine with paying a fee but I don't want to be duped. I have google'd reviews about SBI (http://www.sitesell.com/) but they all seem to be similarly written so I am not sure if they are written by true 3rd party reviewers, current customers, or SBI itself.

    So if anyone out there knows if SBI is a reputable company that delivers what it says, or any other company that offers what I am looking for, I would greatly appreciate the information.

    I want to get my online business going as soon as possible.

    I'm sorry to inform you but hosting and website creation are nont the same thing. Even if you build the website yourself you will still most likely have to pay someone to host it unless you host it yourself or get free hosting neither of which I would reccomed for a business. And most hosts will not help you with the actual coding of the website you have to know that youself. I'm going get my business site hosted soon and plan on going with siteground (www.siteground.com). Look at them they may offer what you need.

    I understand your concern. It is a shame that there are so many scams on the Net that it seems that no one can be trusted. I assure you that SBI is a legitimate business that helps its customers build successful on line businesses - not just websites.

    I used to build websites using Front Page until I discovered Site Build It. This is an all encompassing web hosting, SEO optimizing, ecommerce model. It costs $299 per year paid in one lump sum payment, but it is by far the best web host for creating successful online businesses.

    My first SBI website, www.retirement-jobs-online.com, is based on the very competitive keyword “retirement jobs”. Within four months, the site was number six on Google. Now it fluctuates between number two and number six.

    Site Build It will help you build your web pages so you do not have to know HTML. It uses a point and click method where you provide the content and it will place the pictures, links and text to make a great looking page. It leads you through creating your page so it is search engine friendly. It automatically submits your site map to Google and Yahoo. It has a site blog and automatically pings the search engines when you update a page or make a blog entry. It includes an autoresponder, an ezine publishing function, a survey form function, and several other helpful functions. As far as I am concerned, the most important feature is the research and brainstorming that it leads you through when you are evaluating your market. This taps into the Wordtracker database which is also included in the annual fee.

    I like SBI because it does so much of the mundane site maintenance for me and allows me to concentrate on the business and minimizes the technical demand.

    My second SBI site is www.the-best-web-host.com. On that site, I have an SBI video that I invite you to view to learn more about SBI. You can watch SBI TV at http://www.the-best-web-host.com/sbi-tv.html

    If you would like more information from me, I invite you go "go off forum" and email me at jvwh (at) jhowe.com.

    Good luck with your endeavor whichever option you choose.
