Question – What is the best web design software?
Answer – The one that makes you the most money!
The myriad of differing web design software products available, means that internet entrepreneurs can often be left in the dark when it comes to choice. Not everybody has the luxury of a web designer, or development team to hold their hand, to make these important decisions for them. I am going to try to explain the facts with this web design software comparison.
There are two routes you can take – Free, or Expensive
The Free Route – If you are looking for free web design software, you should really be using WordPress. The number one reason being that Google loves WordPress! And you want your site ranked on Google page one don’t you?
WordPress is the most user friendly platform for website design. It is fully customisable meaning it can be moulded into virtually any web page design.
Originally built and designed with bloggers in mind, internet marketers have seized upon its functionality and ease of use, to build a money making machine that tops the search engines every time. The unique use of ‘plug ins’ that can be woven into the basic web page make it look and feel like the design of an internet giant – little does the user know its free!
There are two versions of WordPress. Hosted for you, and self hosted.
Here you need to make a choice. If you choose for WordPress to host the site, this option is completely free – forever. However you need to weigh up the pros versus cons. Firstly you will have a domain with ‘WordPress’ in the title, therefore not fully branded to yourself,and bear in mind, as it is hosted by someone other than yourself you do not have full control and WordPress basically own your content.
The best, most amazing option is to use WordPress but host it yourself. This means you will have to buy a domain name (very cheap) and buy hosting for the domain – some good offers around at the moment. I currently use hostgator which is around $6 per month. (Not bad for owning your own business). Using this method you now own your own domain and content, and you can update it, change the graphics, the theme, the header add video, make a blog or a sales page, all within the free control panel provided.
The WordPress platform is definitely the best web design software available.
