There are a plethora of DIY style web building programs available these days to help the non programmer get their websites built quickly. These can be a fun way to get a basic site up and running, but they are not always the best idea for professionals or businesses. Here, you may be better off using the services of a pro web designer.
The good things about a DIY builder is often the temptation of a low cost option, which is perfect for kids and for fun purposes (you won’t need to fork out a large amount for a basic site). Businesses need to look a little deeper to realise that the low costs of a DIY option come at a higher price in reality – you will never truly own the site as the company often keep their own branding on the website unless you pay extra fees to have the logos removed. You are then also unable to own the content of the site, and are potentially at the mercy of the web building program regarding the status of your site – they could just delete it whenever they like.
Professional web designers will always give you the option to own the domain along with organising safe hosting for you. It may cost slightly more up front, but the quality of the work will always outweigh any immediate costs.
