Websites Like Weebly Can Take Away Everything You've Worked Hard For
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I never knew what some people were saying until I experienced it. This morning, I checked my Street Articles account to see if three of my articles were accepted, and once again, they were rejected because the links were broken.

Keep reading for the full story.

I created a relationship site two years ago on Weebly. If you don’t know, Weebly is a website that allows people just like you and I to create business websites, hobby websites, etc. Yes, they are exactly like Blogger and Wordpress.

Anyways, my website was a sub domain site, which means I had a free website with no real hosting. Being that I’m a very active Internet Marketer, I have over 100 links pointing back to that site, and poof, they deleted my account and website without any warning.

Do you know how devastating it is to work so hard every single day and have someone crush your hard work like you never did anything? I wanted to cry so bad today, and I felt so used and worthless. I felt like punching all the Weebly staff members in their faces and call them all types of names. I wanted to totally disrespect them, because I felt like they disrespected by not acknowledging the fact that I was with them for two years and they totally messed up a major part of my business.

You’ve probably heard of similar stories, right? Well, I just want you to know that you should definitely listen if you’re an online business owner, because websites like Weebly can take away everything you’ve worked hard for.

A close Internet Marketing friend said, “If you don't want to pay for many websites, here's what I suggest you do. Buy one domain called saytuesayedotcom or something and then create a bunch of alias domains on that domain for all of your domains, then use normal deluxe hosting. You can't really trust these Wordpress free sites because they own all rights and can take it off whenever they want.”

Man, I wish I knew how to do that before. I probably would’ve figured it out if I had listened to what those business owners use to tell me. One thing for sure, I’d never make that mistake again. I advise you to never use free hosting for your business. If you do use free hosting, use Blogger. I think they’re the safest website out here. However, make sure you buy your domain name forward it to your BlogSpot website, that way if they do delete your account, you still have your back links with an active url. You also have the option of backing your template. I will definitely back my website up every two weeks if I were you.

Final thoughts on the subject

Don’t trust websites that allow you to create websites for business. If you use one, use one that allows you to back your website up. Don’t be like me and lose everything you’ve worked hard for, because that could be the main source of your income.

Congratulations Saytue! ...on your 30 day writing challange...maybe its not such a happy moment for you just now....but when you come back up all the better for this experience then you'll be able to laugh at how this crazy bump taught you and others a very valuable lesson...and I know you will!
