Andrea in Macon, GA asks, “How Do I Get a Website?

If you prefer to read…

There are essentially 3 ways to get a website.

1. Build the Website Yourself from Scratch

To do this, you would start by purchasing a web hosting account. Then you would upload and install a content management system like WordPress into the account. Then you would need to find and install a theme, find and install plugins, organize and write all your web pages, and add media.

It’s the least expensive option, but it takes the most work and the most technical ability.

2. Hire a Website Developer to Build Your Website for You

In this situation, the developer helps you select a theme that meets your needs, finds and installs all the plugins that provide the functionality you want, and helps you organize and create the content for your web pages.

This is the most expensive option, but it takes the least work on your part and requires the least technical ability.

3. Build Your Website with an Online Website Builder

The website builder will enable you to select the theme you like best, it already has the plugins or functionality built in, and some website builders like our WP-EZ Website Builder have pre-defined page templates that are already laid out with sample text and images.

This is a middle of the road option which is very affordable and still simple enough for most people even if they’ve never built a website before.

Which of these 3 options is best for you?

That depends on your budget, technical skills, and time available.
