Small businesses need to make every penny count, and paying for web hosting is no exception. There are free and very cheap options available of course, such as Freeola (which I would recommend by the way) but they often do not include the use of a MySQL database, the bit required to store your data, essential if using a CMS (Content Management System).
We at Tessera Designs, however, have based some excellent systems around SQLite, a file based relational database more than capable of running a CMS. With some tweaks to core systems and existing plugins we have fully functional sites using nothing more than SQLite and PHP, which even the cheapest, or even the free providers include.
So don’t feel you need to add the monthly cost of MySQL provision to your budget, at least not to start with, you can be up and running with fantastic results for exactly zero a month! Contact us for more information.
