Why build in WordPress?
WordPress is easy to use, and that is why it is the most popular CMS in the world - used by nearly 455 million websites. According to statistics, it powers more than 35% of the world's websites. And here's a few more reasons... Its a free, open source platform, easy to install, and has free themes, or premium themes that can be purchased at an affordable cost. Themeforest.net has over 49,000 Premium WordPress themes to choose from. You don't have to know how to code it. WordPress is stable, robust, and anyone can learn to manage pages. So what are you waiting for? Call us to get you started now!
How to build and manage your own website
For busy folk who are not tech experts and just want a good quality website built.
If you want to start your own website paying less long-term overheads, then resolve to spend your budget upfront. Get a developer like myself to initially build your site for a one-off fee, then you can take over, self-manage the site upkeep and updates thereafter. That will keep the long-term costs down in the long run.
Advantages of WordPress are: Being open-source (free) it has more choices with design and functionality than private competitor platforms.
Savings: That means you only pay for a one-off build or install fee. Then the only repeating yearly fixed costs are hosting and domain name renewals.
To acheive your objective: We choose Platform of WordPress.org. (not WordPress.com).
Hosting account: We purchase a WordPress Managed Hosting account. (Not Unmanaged) and renew it yearly.
Domain Name: We purchase a Domain Name and renew it yearly. (that is, if you don't already have one.)
In my opinion,Siteground.com is the best Hosting Company around, as they are reasonably priced, dependable, have the latest site tools, provide automated backups, and have one of the best 24/7 helpdesks in the world. You don't need to know anything technical, they will help fix anything that crops up. You can purchase a domain name from them too, and helpdesk will set it up for your account.
Theme: Best Free Theme is Astra Theme - I found them to be the most adaptable and generous with functions in their free version, and have lots of free template starter packs within the theme. They also have so much more in their Pro Version.
This will help if you have complex needs to fulfill, or you could purchase a Premium theme like Avada, from themeforest.net.
Content Builder Tools: If you choose a free theme, then you must add a Content Builder Plugin to work with the theme. The Free Builder I like best is Elementor. It works perfectly with Free Astra.
Both Astra and Elementor tools are regularly updated and maintained by their authors, therefore reliable. They also both have Pro Versions, which you will have to pay a premium each year to keep it, and you would get the benefit of a lot more added features and functionality.
