- Wordpress (Content Management System)
– very popular with bloggers and people who wants to update their websites on their own. With CMS you can update your website content via your web browser – no software or special skills needed. There are thousands of free plug-ins, you can use for any purpose. The disadvantage – it may load slower and it's more vulnerable to hacker attacks than regular HTML website.
- HTML website
– the traditional way to create a website. It offers unlimited possibilities. Excellent choice if you need truly unique website, which do not need to be updated often. The disadvantage is – you will need some basic HTML knowledge to make changes on your own or need to hire an expert. It's difficult to integrate database applications.
- Online Website Builder
– a simple way to build your own website, but rarely gives good results for people who are not familiar with the website development process and HTML coding. May be a good choice for basic website, but should be avoided for business websites where the appearance and functionality are important.
- Prebuilt Template or Theme
– another easy way to build a website, but may be difficult to customize and there will be thousands of similar looking websites. May work for personal website or blog, but not a good solution for business website.
- Flash Website
– looks good, but very expensive to build and update. Flash websites are not search engine friendly and will not rank well in Google searches. They also do not work on some mobile devices (such iPhone,iPad and iPod) and load slow on computers with Dial-Up Internet connection.
