Choosing how you are going to go about creating your website is one the first things that you should consider. Hiring a web design company to do it for you "is" going to cost you money that will eat into your budget for your web project. I double quote the word "is" because being in this industry for so long, I know they will quote you on a reasonable price possibly at the beginning, but then you'll need to update it and add more features into it as you go along and this is where they will have you tied in. Since they built it for you, you'll most likely get them to help you out on anything because they know your website best.

So what can you do? Build it yourself is the answer. Online website builders are the latest trend for people with limited or no technical knowledge of web building to create their fully-fledged and feature-rich website themselves. Creating it yourself means you save loads of money and also you're in control. See my list of recommended online website builders that I have listed for you to help you get started. Now they all do the same thing which allows you to create a website easily and will get you online but over time, more and more companies have developed their own website builder solution for the market. My advice is to go for one of them below and don't look back because they basically all do the same thing.

Wix review »

If you're into flashy websites, then Wix web builder is the best option for you as Flash is what differentiates them from the rest. With almost 9 million websites created from their users, you can tell that they're popular. Using a series of drag and drop actions with absolutely no programming skills necessary and with a vast array of templates for you to choose from, makes it one of my recommended online website builders. What's more, their basic package is free so I would recommend you to go give them a try now!
