Why You Need a Professional Host and Website Designer

Why You Need a Professional Host and Website Designer

profession site

If you are a new business looking to save money on start-up costs, it can be tempting to try and save some money by designing your own website or opting for free hosting. However, while it is easy enough to buy some software or to find a free web host to create your own website, there are plenty of good reasons why web design should be left to the professionals.

Free Web Hosts

Detailed below are some of the disadvantages of using a free web host.

First of all, free sites are often extremely limiting. It is hard to create something that truly reflects your business and branding; free sites really don’t look professional. If a consumer has the choice of choosing a business that has used a free web host to create their website, or between a professional website where it is clear a lot of time and effort has gone into it, they will choose the well-designed website every time.

Moreover, free websites often keep them themselves free by including adverts on the websites. This will include banner adverts and pop ups – your customer will hate them and they are likely to go somewhere else.

Another major disadvantage is that the search engines aren’t like to index your free site, and there is little in the way of support should you run into any technical problems.

The disadvantages of using web design software

Perhaps one of the biggest issues with software is that it is impossible to create a website that looks truly unique, and if you want to do this, you’ll need the technical knowledge to be able to create your own templates.

Often, designing the website won’t be the hardest part, but if when it comes to modifying the design, you might find that this is a problem and you might even end up having to start all over again to achieve the look that you want. In addition, these packages usually won’t allow the editing of the HTML code, which makes it difficult to make any major changes.

Another common problem with this type of software is there are a lack of guidelines and trying to fix an error once it has occurred can end up being time-consuming, especially if you are unable to resolve a mistake and you need to go back to the beginning and start over again.

"I wanted to say thank you for all your time and input on my new website and blog. I was so impressed with the way you understood my brief and listened to what makes me me. The finished site is more than I hoped for, the feel and colours are spot on. My blogs now need to live up to the image you have created for me."
