How Many Websites Do You Really Need?
Why You Need At Least Two Websites
Businesses should have two or more websites; one based on their business name, and a second (or more) website(s) named after their most profitable service or product.
When potential customers search for a local service or product on Google, they usually type the desired location, followed by the service or product needed.
How does this work
Let’s say you own Smith Auto Repair in St. Augustine, FL. Your name-branded website should be SmithAutoRepair.com. And your local search term website should be StAugustineAutoRepair.com.
With 2 website listings, this boosts your chances to acquire the customer searching for local auto repair.
You may be thinking, “That’s awesome – but I don’t have the time, skills, or money for another website.” Here’s where we can help.
First Coast Media will purchase the URL, host, develop, and update your new website with quality content, then lease it to you for as long as you want. All this for a fraction of the price of a complete new website and hosting.
Some websites are available for lease right now – starting at $299 $199 per month.
The website lease includes use of the URL, website, email, updates, hosting and timely redesigns. Please check them out below and contact us if you are interested. Don’t see the one you want? Give us a call anyway – we have over 1000 URLs to choose from currently, and we are constantly adding more.

Leasing A Website
Leasing a website (also known as WAAS – Website As A Service) will allow you to save your capital for other marketing efforts. WAAS will reduce your risk with a new website. By partnering with us in a leased site, the risk of creating a successful, high converting website is borne by us.
A basic website lease includes:
- Five page custom website (Home, About Us, Contact Us, Specials, & Services)
- Use of URL, images, coding, content, hosting, & email.
- Three-year re-design schedule
- Month-to-Month lease can be cancelled at any time.
Buying A Website
Every company should own a website, preferably theCompanyName.com. This should be a domain controlled by the company – registered in the company name, or a trusted officer of the company. Don’t let a designer or developer control your company website registration. This is always a mistake.
Buying a website has higher up-front costs and risks. But, your only monthly fees would be for hosting, email, and any additional marketing activities on the site (SEO, content marketing, bots, etc..)
FirstCoastMedia encourages our clients to own their main website and lease additional ‘marketing’ sites tailored for higher conversions in the clients highest profit products and services.
What does a website cost? It really depends on what you need. A small 8-page brochure site is much less than a full e-commerce site with thousands of products.
