United Kingdom; 12 August 2015: Independent Authors are primarily writers, not marketers. Many may miss out on a web site of their own to serve as a showcase for their work for a number of reasons, not least perhaps because their time is spent writing. However the potential benefits of a web site of their own are numerous to the indie author.
To help authors gain an internet presence through their own custom domain name and web site, Indieauthorsites.co.uk has been established and launched in August 2015. They provide to the indie author community a free web site set up service which includes free domain name registration, help in selecting the best hosting package, installing WordPress, creating a website with a WordPress theme, creation up to pages for the website and search engine optimization which includes relevant keywords as well as sitemaps.
All these services are available for free subject to certain conditions.The author only needs to pay up for the registration fee and web site hosting. Both domain name and hosting are taken out by the author and registered in their name thus owned by the author themselves.
Service creator Andy explains: “A friend of mine is an independent author. He asked me about how to go about getting himself organised with a web site as he wasn’t sure where to start. I set about doing it for him. He is extremely pleased with the result. Now he has his own domain name and web site to act as a central hub for his work.”
“From talking to him, it became apparent that many authors like my friend are in a similar position — they write great books though are not always too savvy on the more technical aspects of web sites and general publicity.”
“Thus I decided to put an offering together available aimed specifically at the indie author community to provide them with a free web site creation service. I can do it for free via a partnership with a leading web hosting company. On condition that the author is a confirmed referral via myself then the web site will be set up for free including the features explained on Indieauthorsites.co.uk.”
“I’d ask any authors reading this to have a look at our web site to see exactly what we are offering and how to go about commissioning us to get started on their free web site. There is a full FAQ and process explained.”
