  • well I know building a website can be a overwhelming. In fact, like everything in this life, you can do a quick/crappy job or a quality website that can bring thousands of visitors everyday. Think about it, google it is just a "Website" but they have thousands of engineers behind it. In any case, I recommend first thinking of which framework you want: i) You can use build it yourself drag and drop web builder, such as wix.com or squarespace. This is a great way to make a website fast, but really simple. If you are serious about building a website, this has a lot of limitations. Wix, does not have a mobile friendly design, so you need to create ANOTHER website. Squarespace takes about 3% of commission of every sale you have. This is on top of the 4% paypal takes. So you can be loosing some money by using them. In addition these web builders cannot be that customized in terms of functionalities. Let's say you have a cool idea for a social network. Well forget it, these web builders won't cut it. ii) WordPress. This is much more powerful/robust than a web builder like wix. However, it requires more tech skills. You need to set up a server, using a hosting company such as BlueHost. Then you need to install WordPress, and import a theme (from themeforest). Then you can start adding plugins, and start building your website. If you are not technical you can hire a web developer, but sometimes it makes sense to hire someone. Especially if this website is for your business. iii) MVC Framework. Examples: Ruby on Rails, CakePHP, Laravel, etc. These MVC Frameworks are very very scalable. Twitter used Ruby on Rails for a while! So you can get an idea of what you can build with them. For this, I totally recommend you to hire a web development company, such as www.geekbears.com , a web development company based in San Francisco. Conclusion: If you just want a simple website, use wix or a web builder. If you are building a website for your business, then build something with WordPress or an MVC Framework!
