Today, you can publish a website for less than the cost of a cup of coffee
It all began when the world wide web (www) was first introduced to the world back in 1991. Back then, you needed to own and manage your own computer server to host a website. This would have literally cost you thousands of pounds at that time. Today, however, is a total different ball game. You can create and publish a website for less than the cost of a cup of Starbucks coffee per month. Some providers, like Free Virtual Servers, even offer free web hosting for life.
