  4. Get a Website – Don’t think it’s too complicated!  Domain Registration and Hosting is getting easier and cheaper every day.  Most hosting companies offer cheap website builders, which means you can have a website up and running in minutes.  Gossimer LCC offers domain registration, email hosting, website hosting as well as an easy to use website builder.  Once you register your domain (usually under $10 dollars per/year), your website can cost as little as $2.99 per/month through Gossimer Web Hosting. http://gossimer.biz/
