One of the first things to consider is that they cater for predominantly the smaller home type of business, which is why their pricing is lower than you would normally see
They offer 3 type of packages, which are the basic hosting package shown below
The website builder package seen below
& Last but by no means least, the WordPress Plus package
Now on the face of it these seem like reasonable costs and good packages to have.

It is in my opinion, a waste of time, because if you are going to have a website then you really need to be looking at WordPress
WordPress as we know, is a must have marketing tool for every business owner.
Correctly set up, it will be found in the search engines and …Attract your customers

& that is the all critical… Uptime
Your website is your window to the world and even if you are marketing locally you will still need the functionality and flexibility of WordPress, combined with good SEO to target your market locally.
