    So, I'm going to try my hand at a website. I have a ton of non transformer related junk slong with a heap of sports cards that I need gone, like yesterday. So I figured I'd give it a go with a website. I've never done web design before. What am I looking at logistically? Who does the best hosting? Anyone that can help me out here, please do.



    Thanks,
    Jay

    I think it depends on your ultimate goal here. If you're just wanting to temporarily sell off some stuff in the short term, you'd probably be better of on either ebay (much as I hate to recommend them for selling) or a forum for whatever it is you're selling. If you're wanting to start your own fan site for something, the first thing you'll want to do is come up with a domain name and register it. This can be done with sites like goDaddy or other domain registry sites. Some of them can even help with hosting and site design.

    If you want to sell stuff, what would be the point of creating a new website that you'd then have to try and drive traffic to in the hopes of finding customers, instead of just using the multitude of online marketplace options already available. And then, once you've sold all that junk, what good will your website be to you?
