For many businesses and individuals the option to choose self-building websites is often more suitable than finding a website designer to design a customised website. in this article we take a look at the basics of building websites, and compare DIY website design to customised website design.
Website design templates are widely available from website design software providers such as Adobe and Dreamweaver, and from online website template providers. Website design templates can vary in usability from basic "drag and drop" packages which allow addition and manipulation of content, to more complex templates which allow users to manipulate the CSS and HTML used to create the website design. Website design templates are fairly simple and clean-looking, however there are a number of website design templates which incorporate Flash builders to create visually stunning and effective websites
Website builders are more complex to use than simple website design templates. Website builders are downloadable packages of software which contain everything users need to build their own websites. Website builders generally offer users complete HTML coding and CSS manipulation to create their own website design from scratch, however there are a number of companies who offer online website builders which follow fixed website designs. Downloadable website builders require extensive HTML and CSS experience in order to create effective and usable website designs
Before you can begin customising a website design template or using a website builder to design your own website, there are a number of things which you need to consider:
Creating your own website using a website design template or website builder is often cost-effective and much quicker than hiring a professional website designer to create one from scratch. However there are some drawbacks to using website design templates such as control over design, uniqueness of design and usability of the finished website. Generally speaking, hiring a professional website designer will result in a unique website which is designed and built to the highest standards. Hiring website designers and website design firms is often expensive however, and in some cases using a free or cheap website design template may be more beneficial.
