Cheap Websites to Under-Cut the Under-Cutters!

Our Answer to the Cheap Websites

When i started this game back in the early 90’s there was no such thing as a cheap website.. website design was an art.. and a lot of work..

Then came MS FrontPage.. Dreamweaver.. and other cheap website programs that will code, align, and upload entire websites to hosting solutions without any real need to know any programming languages.

You know what i did after the launch of FrontPage 98?. I Quit!

I had thought that there’s really no point offering services for a few thousand dollars,. when the job can be done by a complete amateur in the comfort of his or her living room for the cost of a silly program and the time it takes to drag and drop a few tables and images.

It was only 2006 when i started to see the decline of cookie-cutter Cheap Websites with terrible designs and security holes big enough for an adolescent to “hack” his way into some sensitive data.

Then came user cheap websites resources like WordPress, Magneto, and Drupal.

Funny that these platforms do much the same [create websites out of thin air in a few minutes] and give the opportunity for more “hacks” to try their hand at designing some custom sites.

But there’s a bit of a difference.

Dynamic Data Manipulation, CSS, JQuery and SEO

Although FrontPage did have some cheap websites tools that would allow the interfacing with a few different databases, adding tables and what not.. WordPress runs on a dynamic content driven .php to SQL relation platform so basically the hacks can make a site.. but they need a programmer with .php and css expertise to code these static sites into recurring templates with dynamic, data driven content. Then on top of that,. they need to know how to import, manipulate and edit these sites at the whims of the client.

So for the last few years we have done pretty well.

Lots of sites,. lots of work,. lots of fun. but recently we began to see another shift.. this time,. the global economy.

There are more unemployed developers now in the world then ever before – even after the dot com bubble burst in early 2000

And with the sudden influx of developers to the many freelance sites all over the world labor is cheap website design and development companies are popping up all over the world. – i actually lost a client a few weeks ago to a 18 year old kid in India that offered to do his whole site for $35! – Really! how are the rest of the developers in developed world economies supposed to compete with that?!

*sigh

When billy gates came out with frontpage i thought it was a bad sign.. now i think it was more of an bad omen.

Well.. i did the only thing i could think of.

Purple Turtle Productions is now going to give Websites out for Free with hosting packages starting at $1.99/mo

There you go India, Philippines, and other places you can live for a week on 20 bucks..

Undercut That!

  1. I’m really loving the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A handful of my blog readers have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?

  4. Well, I read all your posts now.. great site

  5. Great post, thanks for sharing

  6. My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on several websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

    • I would have to say Yes! .net is handy for web based applications that require a certain set of security tools, interactive behaviors and the like. php is by far the best code to use with regular websites.. wordpress is developed using php btw.

  7. this web site is extremely helpful. very useful info
