Website is a simple and popular way of advertising your business or your personal profile; it could be a blog or a site. In order for any business to communicate easily and fast with clients or customers then you will need a website or a blog, basically a website will advertise all your services and products while your blog will update clients or customers of any news about your business, if there’s a sale or new-in services or products.
So the question is; Why should you hire a website designer? or a developer. You don’t need much coding nowadays in order to design a website, there so many platforms and software offering you drag and drop to design your website and publish within seconds, for example; popular companies offering editors for web design: Wix, GoDaddy, Vista Print, Site Builder, Sitey, eHost, Sitelio, webs, Site blog, Squarespace, 1&1.
Back to our question; Why should you hire a website designer?
When designing a website with a web designer always find companies that don’t charge you for hosting or charge you less for hosting.Hosting is a store (a website or other data) on a server or other computer so that it can be accessed over the Internet, simply saying you need hosting so as your website to be seen in World Wide Web (www). I know companies that don’t charge for hosting and I know the ones charge only little.
What is it got to do with hosting?
When using drag and drop builders, you don’t really get free service to design your site or blog, it’s just a smart way of putting it, how the companies get money off you is through hosting packages you buy from them. These companies know you definitely need hosting to publish your blog and they provide free editors and get their money back through hosting packages.
Let’s breakdown the hosting packages:
COMPANIES Small Package Medium Package Large Package Extra Large
WIX Connect Domain£24/yr Combo£60/yr Unlimited£84/yr eCommerce£120
GoDaddy Economy£12/yr Deluxe£59.88/yr Ultimate£95.88/yr
Vista Print Basic£57.48/yr Standard£11.99/yr Premium£287/yr
Site Builder Premium£67.08/yr Business£83.88 eCommerce£151.32.
Now you have to know the smaller the package the lesser the speed and dismerits, in order to have fast hosting with good security then you need the bigger packages. Take whatever package you have and multiply by 5 years of your business. I will only use bigger packages because that is the best package you will need for your blog; roughly for Wix five years is £600. You will have to pay this no matter how many pages your website is.
However if you use Free hosting web designers five pages website is £259 (one off and no more payments), and more than five pages brochure website is £500. This is how it works; web designers will do all the coding dirty work for you, once everything is all done you will get a simple training on how to edit your services or update your blog, this one you will not need any coding (CMS) the use of WordPress,Joomla, Drupal, Magento is the best. Instead of drag and drop you will be writing your content, upload any video or photos and publish, in time this will save you a fortune.
