WordPress is a free (open-source) software you can use to build highly-responsive websites. Originally WordPress started as a content management system (CMS) for bloggers, but it has now evolved into a complete solution for web design and development, including eCommerce web development. We choose WordPress as our preferred web design platform of choice because of its ability to design customisable, mobile responsive websites that are SEO-friendly.

34% of all websites on the internet are built using WordPress CMS. It’s one of the most popular web design platforms because it allows for complete customisation, responsive design and is SEO friendly, meaning your website can show up on search engines like Google.

There are 3 costs associated with building a WordPress website. The first is the actual build (design & development) of your site. Pricing can vary depending on who you hire and what type of website you want so it’s best to speak with a WordPress expert who can give you an accurate estimate.

The second cost associated with a WordPress website is buying your domain name (www.mywebsite.com), which usually costs around $10-$20 per year.

The third cost is associated with website hosting (where your website is stored) at it can generally cost between $5-$40 per month depending on the quality of web host you choose.

To have your WordPress website live on the internet, you will need to have all 3 components:

Your Website built.
Domain Name purchased.
Web Hosting provider.

WordPress web design and development can take as little as 2 weeks to complete or can take up to 6 months depending on how complicated your project is, how many web pages you require and any specific customisations like calendar bookings or integrations with 3rd party software. Generally speaking, a typical WordPress website takes about 4-8 weeks to build.

A WordPress website will work for any business in any industry. Whether you need a new website for a small business, large company or an eCommerce store, WordPress is an excellent platform for building a wide variety of sites.

Web hosting is a service that houses or stores your website on what’s called a ‘server’ which is just a dedicated computer built to hold websites.

Your website is a collection of different files and those files need to be stored somewhere and that’s where a web host provider comes in.

Please note web hosting services can vary in quality dramatically so if you’re not sure what web host is right for you, please get in touch and we can help you choose the right hosting company for your needs.
