Web Hosting – A lot of people are daunted by the idea of making a website, and thankfully there are lots of tools out there that can help new webmasters make great websites quite easily. You can spend a lot of money on software that helps you put together a website, and for some people this is the way to go. But, if you’re just starting out with your online business and don’t have a ton of cash, there are great site builders that can help you build a website in literally minutes without spending hardly any money. Here’s how you use them, and what they can do for you.

There are many site builders you can use. Most good web hosts offer a website builder as part of their basic hosting packages. It’s a good idea to take advantage of this builder with your host, because it’s usually included with the cost of your website domain name and space. There’s either an online website builder, or sometimes a downloadable offline builder that hosts offer. This is great for new webmasters because these site builders usually include everything you need to make a great, basic website. Some of the aspects to a site builder usually include free storage for your images and media, step by step instructions or wizards, and usually a large amount of templates that have been proven to be SEO friendly and easy to use.

There are some downfalls to using a host’s website builder. First of all, you’re usually locked in with that host if you use their builder to host your media and build your website. If you decide to leave your host, all of your website information may be lost. Also, you are used to one site builder, locking in your web building skills to one method and tool for creating websites. If you choose to not use a site builder, and go the more expensive route with software like Dreamweaver, you’ll learn to use a website making platform that can be used with any website design project across the board, and you’re not stuck with one single design method. It may take more time and money initially, but going with the software alternative that has also proven itself to be a standard in the industry is a better long term solution, although much more expensive. If you’re just starting out, this might not be the best option for you right away.

A website builder can be a great way to affordably design a website and add content without having to spend a lot of money- often times being included with basic web hosting in an effort to save you money. For webmasters just starting their own businesses with affiliate marketing, or setting up a website for their brick and mortar business, or someone simply looking to expand their blogging horizons, using a site builder can be a great and very valuable option. It gives you time to work on other projects for your business and saves you start up money. It’s a great way to get started!
