Do I Need to Pay for Website Building?

When choosing a uk web hosting plan, some people choose to pay extra to have their site built by qualified website designers. If you are planning a complex site which needs bespoke script written for it, unless you are able to do this for yourself you will need to hire in a designer. However, if you are building a fairly standard shop front, a personal website or a small business site, you should be able to construct this from scratch even if you haven’t got any previous experience in these matters.

Most good quality web hosting companies offer good website building applications. If you don’t have Dreamweaver or any other kind of website building software available, these provide a good substitute. Most website builders available from web hosting companies are easy to use, but relatively inflexible: they are great for small websites but nothing hugely ambitious should be attempted.

Just Host supplies a free site builder that can build a website within minutes, based on one of its templates. Hostgator’s site builder is also free and easy to operate even for absolute beginners. IPage, Bluehost and Green Geeks are also good options: Green Geeks offers its clients two different site builders, one for beginners and a more complex one for more advanced users. For most users, these builders will be more than adequate for their needs, and will stop money being needlessly spent on website designers.
