Web design cost or website cost? There can be a difference. Web design cost is the amount you’d pay a website designer to design your website, or to customize your website. Website cost can include the cost of the web design, the cost of the domain, the cost of the hosting, the cost of content creation, the cost of logo design or graphic design, the cost of photography, the cost of keyword research and on-page SEO, and the cost of marketing the website.
A website of your own can also cost you nothing other than the domain registration and hosting (and their yearly renewals), and time spent setting up the website yourself, creating pages and content yourself, and marketing the website yourself.
Is it possible to set up your own website if you don’t know how to design a website?
If you have registered a domain and have gotten hosting, you can log into your hosting and install WordPress. You can upload a free theme from wordpress.org and you’re on your way! You have a website of your own and you just need to add its pages of content. It may take a bit of getting used to but you don’t need to know how to design a website.
