Website Development for FREE of COST - Is that a Great Idea?
Whenever we are planning for a website, first thing we do is, discuss with the friends / relatives for the cheapest developer who can create a beautiful website. From nowhere you might hear a voice, “I HAVE A GUY THAT SAID HE COULD MAKE ME A WEBSITE FOR FREE”. Is that a great idea?
No. This is a bad idea unless that guy’s career is in web design for your industry. Having a friend or family member make your website is like trusting a handyman to lay the foundation of a skyscraper. A LOT goes into having an optimized website—SEO optimization, file compression, responsive design, schema markup, etc.—and if it isn’t built on the right foundation, it will likely topple over.
Even if you DO have a professional web designer as a friend, be careful—different industries have different website design standards. For example, a website for health services will have completely different components and markup than a website for the HVAC industry. There is a difference between a designer and a developer.
So, what do I mean by that? That sounds weird. So, when I say designer, I mean someone who’s strictly an artist, and there’s a lot of those out there. A lot of ‘designers’ are only concerned about the aesthetics of the site. What it looks like, or if its unique, or if it follows the latest website design trends. But at the end of the day they don’t really ‘get it’ when it comes to what the primary purpose of a website is.
Paying Too Little:
On the other hand, the way a lot of people think about getting a new website is, they have a certain amount of money and they think, “If I pay less money for a website, I’ll have extra money left over, therefore I win”. How will you get the website development for the lowest cost. There must be a catch right?
Everything will be working fine when the demo is shown. Later, you slowly start discovering the limitations and many of them turn out to be not free at all. Many of these free website services often turn out to be limited trials. After a while you are asked to pay for it. In most cases, this price is usually way higher than normal hosting and development services.
Some say the design and development is free but they charge their users for every services like server hosting, CMS installation, images, email accounts, FTP access, website transfer, etc. These charges are often outrageously high. They usually give you very limited storage to store your data. When you reach that limit, you are often asked to pay for more storage.
Predominantly, if your plan to create new website for your business, speak with the experts, get the pricing, and start developing the website which has a long run with proper technology upgrades and update the pages as you grow in the business.
