5 Reasons You May Want to Create Your Own Website

While no website is completely free, you can accomplish a lot with little funds. You’ll at least have to pay for a web host and domain, but that can be fairly affordable. The actual creation of the website can be done at no cost if you follow these steps.  If you want to know how to create a website for free, you’ll need to ensure you have the following pieces in place to be successful.

1. You have a domain and hosting. Go ahead and choose a domain, or what you want your website address to be. If it is already taken, you’ll have to come up with another one unless you can purchase the already-existing domain. The next step is choosing a host. Get these minimal tasks out of the way and you’re on your way to creating a website for free.

2. You created a logo and branding on your own. This can take a long time to design but if you have a knack for design and already know what you want your branding to be, you can do something that will work for your site - at least to get you started.

3. You have content and images for your site. Images and good content are necessary for creating a website on your own. Gather the images carefully and write out the content you want on each page. If you can do this, then you may be able to pull off a free website without needing the additional help of a web designer and/or copywriter.

4. You don't have much of a budget. This is a great reason to stick to doing it on your own. If you have the above items and you want to save a large chunk of money, creating a website for free is the way to go.

5. You have a lot of time. It takes time to piece together each of these elements in a balanced way and design a site so that clients feel connected, have the answers they need and feel like trust you enough to do business with you.

If you have these things already or are able to complete each of these tasks on your own, then creating a website for free may just be your best course of action!
