Places To Host Your Sales Page For Free


Another week has passed and today I would like to share with you 3 places that I have experimented to host my product sales page for free without any ads. They are as below which I hope you will find useful.

1. Blogger



The service is provided by Google primarily as a platform for blogging. However, with it's reach features of being able to host images, templates and text, it is a great Content Management System platform.

Click Here for a sample page hosted by Blogger. This sales page is used with a blogger theme/template to give it a shopping cart feel.

An alternative option will be to use Wordpress.com which is the next competing blogging platform. For simple sites, Google's equivalent free hosting is Google Sites but does not allow you to upload your own html files.

2. JustPaste.it



This page gained popularity unfortunately due to it being used by terror groups and is an equivalent of an upgraded version of pastebin (an online notepad)

The advance features allows you to copy and paste sales pages on to the site which is a big appeal and makes it quite quick to setup sales pages. The only downside is that you will get the JustPaste.it header on your pages. That is the only form of advertising you will see in exchange to use the free service. You may also chose to upgrade your account for $5/year which will unlock extra features such as a larger quota for hosting your images.

Click here for a sample sales page hosted on JustPaste.it. The downside is that you get a page with JustPaste.it header/branding at the top but was quite simple to set up.

3. NeoCities



This brings back the days before blogging and beyond any content management systems. NeoCities were set up to replicate the glory days of GeoCities when everyone would register to get a webpage on the internet and are able to showcase their basic sites coded in purely HTML with GIFs. This were the equivalent to the modern day social media accounts and blogs.

Well, after signing up, there is a suggestion for some donation which gives you a premium service but utilizing the free account (1GB of space) was sufficient for my review.

There is a build in folder management system which you can use to upload your html and image files. It was a fairly quick and simple process. The inbuilt HTML editor will also allow to edit files in a fly.

I hope you would have found this post useful and can use it as additional resources for your online ventures.

Disclaimer: Do note that the quality of the location you host will impact the ranking of your pages. So, use the above method wisely and on a need basis. Lastly, do proceed with risk as you are using a free service provider which could disappear without notice.

Avoid Bank Fees when Transferring Money Back to Malaysia from United Kingdom



Being a Malaysian living abroad, there are times when I need to transfer some money back home. I have previously been using HSBC to transfer money between countries but later discover TransferWise and can't believe the improved rates and reduces fees to be paid. It was a no brainer.



How To Get Started?

All you have to do to enjoy the rates is to register for an account, pay the sum that you want to transfer either through your debit card (fastest option), online bank transfer or credit card (attracts an additional fee). Make sure you have the bank account number and swift code of the destination account you would like the money to arrive to in local currency. In this case, it will be your Malaysian bank account. You will get e-mail notifications once your transfer have been processed.

Speed of Transfer

The fastest transfer I have experienced was 2 days to USA and 4 days to Malaysia. This will be dependent whether you initiate the transfer and the number of working days.

The Fees?

You will know upfront the fees and there are no additional cost to be paid by the receiving end. This is deducted from the total amount you wish to transfer. You get a discount in the form of reduced fees on your first transfer.

I am interested to hear about your experience or if there are any other competing service out there.

Have fun and let us rise against hefty bank fees!
