The story behind Ready-to-Use Websites

The story behind Ready-to-Use Websites is this: I needed a website. I got quotes to have a website designed and built. Those quotes ranged from $3,000 to $12,000. What small or start-up business can afford prices like that and who can wait for weeks or months to have a costly website built?

I decided to build my own website. Having a background as an application developer I was in a good position to do so and I swithched over to coding XHTML (and CSS, PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, XML, AJAX, etc. if these names have any meaning to you). I built my own website and to my surprise (even though it may not have looked very professional), I started to get paid work selling stock photographs at that time.

Then I thought of helping others establish an Internet presence by providing them with domain name registration, hosting, and websites at an affordable price. To keep it affordable, I developed a concept whereby every website would be based on the same code-base or framework but with every website looking different because the site-owner selects a style, selects features, and of course uploads their own content (text, images, articles, links, etc.)

Right from the start when our product was as rough as sandpaper (not really, but it wasn't as good as it is now), we encouraged feedback and listened to our site-owner's suggestions and we have made big improvements to the product and have added many new features. We will continue to work toward providing an excellent product at an affordable price as well as providing excellent support and assistance to our site-owners so that their businesses and ventures succeed.

At R&N Collins, we can develop custom built websites and web applications if needed. We can provide hosting and domain name registration meaning that you don't need to shop around for those services if we build your website.

We have developed an awesome product, a Ready-to-Use Website that is easy, fast, affordable, and well, uhm.. ready-to-use. Read about it here or on our website.

Ready-to-Use Websites Offer More for a Small Fraction of the Price of its Competitors

A search on the Internet for ready to use websites will find several sites offering web templates that require the buyers to code up their websites, find their own hosting, register their own domain name, etc.

Some sites, such as Ready-for-Use Websites, found at, sell ready to use websites that include hosting, domain name registration, and a website. On inspection of various such sites offering ready to use websites, it was discovered that some contain up to 5 pages with 10 images, that are designed by the seller. One such site offered a content-management module as an add-on.

Our Ready-to-Use Websites product includes a browser-based, content-management web-application as standard. The buyer manages the entire content herself from anywhere in the world.

Let us compare prices from one of our competitors (an Australian site):
Hosting, Domain Name Registration, Website with 5 pages and 10 photos designed by the seller: AUD$495 PLUS $29.95 per month. Content Management ADD-ON: AUD$395 PLUS $29.95 per month. The total for one year is AUD$1608.80 (approx US$1217.00). Annual renewal was not mentioned on their site.

Ready-for-Use Websites Price:
Hosting, Domain Name Registration, Website with 11 or more pages (described here:, Browser-based, Content Management web-application: US$195 for the first year. Annual renewal is US$100.

This is a fraction of the price of a competitor offering a similar product.

Our Ready-to-Use Websites are fully functional, content-management, sites that enable you to establish an Internet presence for a very economical price.

Added: 01 August 2006. I noticed another site offering template-based websites. They offer prices starting from only $249* for a basic 5 page web site. The price includes six minor changes each year. These changes are made by the host, not by the site owner. Our sites (Ready-to-Use Websites) offer you unlimited online content management by you the site owner using your browser anywhere in the world.

New Feature: Digital Shop

We have introduced a brand new feature to our Ready-to-Use Websites. The Digital Shop is where you, the site-owner, upload your Digital Products (eBooks, Photo or Art Posters, Music, Videos, Articles, etc.) and optionally a cover photo or each Digital Product. Your customers purchase the products on-line and as soon as their payment is processed, they are presented with a webpage containing the download links for the products they have purchasd.

This is a great opportunity for you to sell your Digital Products and everything is automated. You do not need to post or deliver anything manually. Money can land in your PayPal account while you sleep - and your customer gets the product downloads instantly.

This new feature is available to current site-owners and of course to new site-owners who purchase a Ready-to-Use Website.

A Testimony

Jul, 2008

... I had been trying to get a website for more than three years. Well there was the cost. Some companies had quoted more than $5,000 - out of my range. Then domain names. And who was going to set up the site? A couple of months ago I chanced upon READY TO USE WEBSITES, the cost was very reasonable. It was so simple setting up the site and I can manage the content myself. It has my creative juices flowing in my spare time. Rodney has been very prompt in solving all my problems and provides excellent and prompt service. Ready to Use Websites even went to the lengths to create a special style for my furniture business.I am really touched by the service.
