Self Hosting starting at $3.95

Self Hosting:
Please design it for me and I will host it?

I recommend Siteground for your self hosting needs. Someone will need to setup and install the site on your web server and register/point the domain name, setup email accounts and passwords, install security plugins (Some require subscriptions), install a SSL (Secure Socket Layer) and many other tasks, that is not included in the website development services, those are considered web hosting services.
I offer website installation/maintenance assistance at $30hr.

Things to consider

Content Management Systems (WordPress)

Maintenance Required

Websites using databases or web applications require software updates and regular maintenance and monitoring. 

Software updates provide security vulnerability patches to newly discovered threats discovered all the time as well as product improvements and bug fixes. You can do this work yourself or choose a managed hosting plan from me. But the work must be done to keep the site running without issues.

html 5

Maintenance Free

If you do not need a database and require a simple information website then an HTML 5 website will work for you. But someone still needs to make regular content changes to the site.

Do you need a database? It depends on what your needs are, if you want an e commerce website, a database to store and share information - Real Estate, you need a blog or similar database driven features then you will need to a database, if not you can use a HTML 5 website.

WordPress vs HTML 5

A website needs someone to maintain and update it even the HTML 5 sites need to have content changes made to keep it fresh and relevant on a regular basis.

The beauty of using WordPress is that it fairly easy to learn how to edit pages, but requires more in depth knowledge of maintaining databases and plugins. But with HTML 5 you will need a greater depth of knowledge to make changes. They both need someone who knows web and can backup the sites.

what is website hosting

What Is Web Hosting?

A website is just digital information stored on a web server. A Web Server is just a powerful computer connected to the internet that shares the information with whoever accesses it.

A Web Host is the company that offers web servers to host your site on (GoDaddy, Site ground, Me). You can choose a to host yourself or have someone like me do the work for you.

development time

How Long Does It Take?

Development time depends on the scope of the project of course and my current work load. 
  • Content development - photos, text, videos, graphics and animations.
  • Website theme development built in 4 screen sizes: Desktop, Laptop, Tablet and Mobile.
  • Database and form development.
  • E commerce store development.
  • Server setup and framework installation.
  • Most importantly a clear vision of the final project.
why wordpress?


Yes, I build in WordPress for many reasons, one of which is it empowers local organizations to be able to use and modify their websites by themselves.
  • 26% of the 1.2 billion websites in the world are said to be powered by WordPress. 
  • WordPress is an open-source CMS and is well supported.
  • WordPress is highly scalable and powerful.
