Suggestions on do-it-yourself website creation

Post by JasperJones » Mon Mar 13, 2017 11:17 pm

Hey!

I have been with Wix.com for a few years now i am considering moving over to something like Wordpress to sell services in post-audio promotion, instrumentals, promoting, & blogging. Any recommendations on company for hosting? I have very little knowledge with HTML so I would need a drag and drop type service.

Thanks!

wordpress is pretty much just point and click once you have it setup. Probably your host will provide a one click install via some script of some kind.

As for who, I host eveything with hostwinds.com, they've always been alright for me.

Otherwise you'd be wanting a basic shared host package, any of the major ones would probably be ok

Thanks! I am doing some pricing. I am thinking about going with Site Ground (https://www.siteground.com/)

Does Wordpress cost anything on top of the hosting service?

not in itself. Wordpress is free

But you may have to pay for a theme if you want a premium one.
Then perhaps pay someone to change the theme to how you want it if the provided interaction methods don't allow you to edit it for your needs
Then plugins, some plugins have to be paid for (but most are free)
