Website help

Any of you know of a reasonable website developer?  Right now my domain is parked and it's going to be about a fiction crime book I'm working on and I just need a splashy "coming soon" page with a logo.  I already have the logo designed.

    Andrea, I haven't the skills you need for this project, I'm sorry to say.  I have been watching this request for help, and had hoped some of our members would have the talent to be able to assist. Looks to me that the Roadfood crowd  is more "Consumer than Creator oriented" !!!

    I think you're right, Al, and I guess I'm going to have to get cracking and do it myself!  I suppose it's never too late to learn!

    Let your fingers do the walking.  Around Lexington that are probably dozens of folks that do that.  Calll several of them and get prices.  You will be surprised as some of them are extremely expensive and others just need work.

    I do in-house web development for my company, but am not set up for doing it professionally otherwise. If you're feeling up to learning, a lot of the bigger web hosting services (GoDaddy, Earthlink) have improved their website building tools in recent years if you wanted to have a go at it yourself. You can get pretty good results if you work at it. Otherwise, Paul gave some good advice, the cost can vary greatly between developers so shop around.

    See if there is a computer science department at your local community college/university.  There are, no doubt, any number of students who can do exactly what you are asking for - all for a resume builder and beer money.

    I've put up a ads at the University of Kentucky, but most of the students are on Summer break.  And SeamusD I'll see what I can do with godaddy, but I don't want their ads all over it.  It's just parked now and that is fine as the project isn't completed.  I just wanted a "teaser" page.

    As long as you're paying for it, they won't require any ads on your site... I have 2 sites hosted with them and it's just my content.
    You'd have to be paying for a hosting package to even get a teaser page up though.

    I would recommend skipping godaddy. They're severely overpriced. I use hostmonster.com. If you search around you can usually find a coupon to get their service for less than the asking price.

    Your problem is that you are looking for a designer rather than a developer. In terms of development, I could turn your logo into a coming soon page in a matter of under 5 minutes, and would feel guilty charging anything for it. What you want is an artist who can give you what you consider to be "splashy"; the ones I know would charge a couple of hundred for that. If you want, I can refer you to them.
