It was one of those 'we got to talking' type situations while my bike was on the Dyno last Saturday. He had wanted to start selling parts online a few years back, but got hooked up with some company that was soaking him for 2k a month … yet somehow not actually producing anything useful.
He has a domain name - sort of... - we still have to play the 'who really owns the domain name' game with the (GoDaddy) registrar. But once that is sorted, I'm planning on aiming him at an eBay store that traffic can be directed to through a cheap as possible his-domain-name page. That should cut down on the moving parts as much as possible for him, as I do not want to have to end up maintaining the page/site/wtf ever this turns into. Since the last web project I got roped into turned in such an epic train wreck, that I may never to do any of it ever again.
I had already considered wix, but wanted to hear from a trustworthy bunch about how truly recommended it really was before sending him that way. Alternatively - assuming we can regain control of the account - since it's already apparently a full package GoDaddy show...we could just leave it there. I just hate to because their name, image, and advertisements irk me to no end..
