Pricing

One.com offers only one shared hosting plan, which includes the website builder, one-step WordPress blogging, email, and a few other tools. There is no VPS or dedicated hosting services available.

Pricing depends entirely on storage space, ranging from 15GB ($1.89 per month) to 2TB ($180 per month). I looked at the entry level 15GB tier, which costs $1.89 per month or $22.68 per year. A special promotion waived that cost, as well as the cost for registering a new .com domain ($13.80 per year). For the first year, One.com charged just the $13.80 setup fee. If I hadn’t had the promotion, the basic plan would have come out to $50.28 for the first year. There is no setup fee in later years, dropping the price tag to $36.48 per year, or $3.04 per month.

Template Monster is the largest, most comprehensive website template service on the Internet. Template Monster continues to add more high quality templates, keep up with technology and popular platforms and they provide great customer service.

Currently Template Monster offers more than 20,000 templates in many popular formats, such as CSS with flash, HTML, dynamic sites for compatibility with a variety of screen types and even many in PSD format. In addition, they now offer turnkey websites, which are fully supported and hosted, the perfect solution for small businesses or organizations.

Types of Paid Templates

Basic Templates

It should be noted very quickly that while the customization services mainly deal with WordPress sites (which are really popular these days), TemplateMonster offers a plethora of additional template types including HTML5, Flash, photo gallery templates, SwiSH templates, and PSD templates

Facebook Templates

The last kind of template to keep in mind is the Facebook template. This is a great option for branding your Facebook page. It’s ideal for those who want to build traffic to their online store by establishing a firm presence in major social networks like Facebook.

Corporate Templates

These templates differ from the other ones. They cater to specific corporate needs. You can order corporate powerpoint presentations, logos and full identity packages with letterheads and business cards.

CMS/Blog Templates

These templates rely on technologies in WordPress, Joomal and Drupal to provide you with an easy-to-manage platform that can be used to add more content. It’s great for building content systems, i.e., websites that regularly put out content in the form of articles, press releases and/or blogposts.

eCommerce Templates

These types of templates are considerably more complicated. They upgrade from simple HTML pages and Flash designs by incorporating high-quality e-commerce technologies like Magento, VirtueMart, PrestaShop, Zen Cart and more. They in effect let you build full-fledged e-commerce platforms that you can then use to sell products to the general public.

Free Templates

It should be noted that TemplateMonster also offers a few free templates. We do not recommend using these, because they are really simple and offer few customization options. They are not bad for getting a taste of how the templates work, but if you want to build a legitimate website, then we definitely recommend you invest in a paid template.

Pricing

Through Template Monster you can buy templates individually with a limited use license or you can purchase it as unique and Template Monster will stop selling that template to help ensure that your site appears fresh and distinctive. Template Monster does not offer a membership package; however, most of their sites are available for well under $100.

Royalty-free templates range from about $50 -$150 and can easily be sorted by type and category. Once you have bought a template you can customize it as many times as needed to create content pages for your website. Template Monster offers both unique rights and custom services.

Summary

Template Monster really is the best of the best, and they just keep getting better. They offer more templates than anyone else, keep on top of technology and provide great support and service. If you are a small company or organization without a webmaster, they offer great complete solutions or if you are a designer, they provide high quality templates that will definitely help you keep your clients coming back to you for more. Everyone wins with Template Monster.

This week, we review VideoHive. It’s like iStockPhoto but for videos, and can save you literally thousands of dollars in expensive video production.

It’s super easy to use: VideoHive is basically licenses to videos that you can fully customize. So, you remember the old UPS whiteboard commercials that have become really popular? I’m going to show you an example of that, just so you can wrap your head around what you can do with it.

So hopefully, you get the idea. You can customize all of that text, you can add your company logo. And the only thing you need to do that is the program Adobe AfterEffects. You edit it yourself. This video, for example, costs 30 bucks for the license. That’s something that would cost you thousands and thousands of dollars to go make on your own.

Also they have fancier videos at their disposal. If you want videos with 4D cinema, after effects and motion effects, Video Hive has them. You can then use a video editing program to customize the videos to your specific message you are trying to get across.

Animated logo by sound in Cinema 4D Project allows you to make your own 3D intro which will move by your sound.

Pros:

High quality professional videos gives you and your site credibility and authority.
Sort videos by various criteria (date, title, author, price, rating, etc.) to help you nail down the videos you need.
Earn money though Video Hive by selling your own stock if you wish.
Save money and time by buying cheap quality videos instead of spending a fortune to have them created for you or doing them yourself.

Cons:

Videos aren’t geared towards typical internet marketing niches like weight loss and insurance, but with some creativity you can make them relevant.

So, videohive.net, a lot of good stuff to play with on there. Go check it out, hopefully you can utilize it for your own company.

Overview

A new provider with the rather philanthropic mission of delivering free mobile service to all, FreedomPop takes a different approach to its broadband plans. It offers both dedicated 4G plans, which tend to be cheaper, and plans that offer additional nationwide 3G roaming at a slight premium. Where FreedomPop stands apart, however, is its ultra-budget option: You can sign up for a free, 500MB monthly allocation that can be used with any Sprint-compatible USB modem or mobile hotspot.

The Company

FreedomPop’s mission is to deliver free and fast mobile services to all Americans.

FreedomPop is a new wave telecom company launched publicly in October 2012. It is headquartered in Los Angeles and backed by Skype Founder Niklas Zennstom’s Atomico, Mangrove Capital, and DCM. Delivering unprecedented value and convenience to the mobile market, FreedomPop ensures that no American is left off the digital grid.

How FreedomPop Works?

FreedomPop website, submit your zip code and email to find out if you live in an area serviced by them. Since FreedomPop operates through Clearwire and Sprint, it is likely you will be able to take advantage of what they have to offer.

 FreedomPop.com requires the purchase one of their devices for connectivity to their data plans. Many of them are geared toward those who seek to increase the capabilities and usage of their mobile phones, laptops and tablets while on the go.
FreedomPop’s plans are based around a data bundling system. Any unused data for that month is bundled and then is sold for a lower price. This enables them to offer great deals to their customers.

Plans Available

With the 500MB plan, it is enough to let you browse Facebook, check your email or order food online, if you plan to connect to the mobile internet more often or stream any sort of video, you’ll want more data to play with. With plans as small as 1GB and as large at 10GB, most casual users should be able to find an allocation that suits them, for prices notably cheaper than what’s offered by the competition. Other considerations aside, $60 for access to 10GB of 4G LTE data is a solid deal. You can sometimes find even better ones on the FreedomPop website, but they change often and aren’t always clear.

Conclusion

FreedomPop is designed for those who don’t do much on the internet other than browse Facebook and check email. If you fall into that category, though, it’s one of the cheapest options available, and might even be free.
