New Website FAQs
What about site-builders like Weebly?
Sure, those are great options if you’re not a programmer and want total creative control. But, even with the shortcuts built into those apps, there’s a lot that can go wrong or suck away at your time. You may save money by doing it yourself, but what is it costing you in time spent?
Do I need to know programming to manage WordPress?
Heck no! WordPress was actually my intro to programming a decade ago before I knew any actual programming. Once your new wordpress website is up and running, there’s very little you’ll need to do to keep things running smoothly (mainly the occasional software update and keeping your web hosting renewed).
What if I don’t want a new WordPress website?
While there are many reasons to build your new website on WordPress, there are also reasons not to, such as:
- You already use another CMS (content management system)
- You want something a little more unique or custom
- You want to host an app or other piece of software
Whatever the reason, if you want a fully customized website I can do that too!
What stuff of my own do I need to manage a new website?
Not much; you’ll just need your own website URL, your own hosting platform, and an internet connection.
