Hi,

I did research on companies that can design web sites for a $99.00. I have purchased a domain name,

but there were several companies displayed that design sites. Any recommendations for companies that

design a web site for blogging and selling books? Thanks.

Research Drupal or Wordpress.

If you want to play around with them download them and XAMPP and you can run them locally.

Wordpress.com is definitely an easy one to start with and for free. If you wish to blog, if I were you, I would learn it myself. That way, you don't have to go through someone else to update your own blog. You can learn how to design a website online, but it all depends on your own computer skills and time, of course. $99 does not buy a whole lot for website design.

Don't forget that you will also have to pay for webhosting when figuring in costs.

Startup costs for a small site are not that expensive, something like $5+ a month. The host realizes that relatively few of these will generate any real traffic so they can pack hundreds or even thousands of sites onto the same server.

These will typically have "unlimited" storage and bandwidth but it's just a marketing gimmick, if you look in the fine print you'll find language about CPU limits etc. If you outgrow such plan at that point you should have enough traffic to generate enough revenue to pay for better hosting services and even put some money in your pocket.

If you shop around, you can get an introductory offer as low as $3/month if you go for a one time payment of a 3 year contract.

Do you want to create a WordPress site? I suggest you to hire an individual developer rather than company. You may take a look on freelancing sites.
