Affordable Web Design and Hosting Services – A 7-Point Buyer’s Checklist

Setting up a website, most importantly, requires affordable web design and hosting services. Although the terminologies pertaining to web designing and hosting look complicated, finding out affordable services for the same is easy once you follow the crucial seven checklist. The key is to understand each term that pertains to hosting. Once you understand the purpose of a web hosting service, you will be able to find out the hosting service that would do justice to your requirements.

1. Your Website Goals
When approaching a web design and hosting service, make sure that you are clear with the goals of your website. Furthermore, a website involved in ecommerce, would require a different approach of hosting. A web design and hosting provider will be able to give you perfect services only when you are clear with the goal of your website.

2. Hosting Plans
Hosting as well as the design plans vary with the hosting service providers. In order to get affordable web design and hosting services, it is important to be able to compare the plans offered to you. The checkpoints may include factors such as cost, customer service of the company, as well as the reliability quotient.

When comparing the prices, make sure that you begin with the low costing hosting plans, and gradually climb up the ladder. This will give you the insight about the difference in the costs as well as the reasons why these differences have developed. The reliability of the provider is another crucial point. For an ecommerce website, the host needs to be a reliable medium without which the business will suffer untimely loss.

3. Cost Efficient Web Hosting
There will be many companies claiming affordable web design and hosting services, however, you should make note that your services will equal the amount that you are willing to pay. Make sure that you do not purchase a low cost deal for a commercial website, as this would risk the foundations of your business in the eventual progress of events.

4. Customer Reviews
Customer reviews and testimonials act as a crucial factor for deciding upon a hosting or designing service. A single disparaging comment may reflect a poor performance of the company however, that may not be the case. This is the reason that you should review the company and its profile for picking them for your project.

5. Company’s Terms and Offers
Hosting companies often develop an illusionary image when it comes to the bandwidth, storage, as well as email addresses. Make sure that you are clear with the pretext with which the term “Unlimited” is used.

6. SEO
Search engine optimization is one among the most important clauses that you need to check when it comes to web design and hosting services. Understand that a website can only be successful when it is in context with the rules of SEO. Make sure that your web designing services cover the key rules of SEO to make your website gain a good base over the web.

7. Customer Service
The last checkpoint may sound as a cliché; however, you will be able to decode the efficiency and credibility of the company based on their customer service. A good company will try its best to satisfy its clientele, which is an important feature that one should go for.

  1. What’s the best affordable webdesign agency in nyc?
    I have an idea for a website but need the right web designers that know how to allow people to upload things onto the site. Thanks.

  2. Easy and affordable webdesign/hosting site for a small business?
    I am trying to create a website that I can ***easily*** manipulate for our small business. I don’t want something too fancy, but definitely something reliable and where my customers can have the option to zoom in on pictures. I do not want someone else to build the website for me, I want to be able to do it on my own.

    Thankyou 😀

  3. Where can I get affordable webdesign lessons?
    I have dial up and want to learn web design. I’ve been out of work for a while so I don’t have a lot of money. I bought something from a guy who’s name sounds like Mar-cuss Kamp-bell and his Simply Sites for Large & Big Profits.

    I emailed him and called him and he gave me no help. I have written to him a couple more times and he does not seem to respond.

    I would like a better experience and to actually learn something. Please don’t tell me to just go and get a manual unless you know it is user friendly otherwise I will be lost.

  4. That is not an easy site to write, I hope you have at least $10,000 to spend (unless you offer the programmer ownership interest in the site and they want it).

  5. What would you search in Google if you wanted a webdesigner for a good yet affordable website?
    Well, lets say you want a website for your business. You want to make it inexpensive in start and are looking for a small IT company, or maybe a freelance webdesigner. Best option – search the Google or yahoo.

    I wanted to ask what you’d put in your search query ? like
    affordable webdesign
    freelance webdesigner
    cheap website designing

    or something else?

    Please tell me your suggestions. What words you’ll actually search for? What you expect in the website?

    Be open minded. I’m ready to give thumbups and select a best answer…

  6. Hi Aditya,

    My suggestion is that you learn keyword research! Then you won’t have to ask this question here, because you can find the answers yourself. You can find the best phrases to use according to what is achievable for your site. There are 3 top keyword research tools:

    1. Google AdWords Keyword Tool –
    2. Wordtracker –
    3. Keyword Discovery –

    AdWords is simple and basic – Type a phrase (or multiple phrases, one per line,) and click the suggestion button. You will see the number of times the phrase was searched in your country in the last month, next to the number of people who search the phrase worldwide per month. The bar indicates the saturation of paid search advertisers using that phrase. You can hit ‘add’ to save keywords and ‘get additional keyword ideas’ to find even more phrases.

    Keywords above 500 local search volume (in your country) are considered competitive. So depending on the time and effort that can be put into the site you are trying to promote, you should choose certain keywords.

    You’ll see that there will be specific keywords which may say ‘deals’, ‘cheap’, or ‘affordable’ in most cases. If you’ve already done this, I apologize – To truly answer your question, I would probably search other sites than Google or Yahoo. But in the case I did, I would likely say “affordable web design”. I would probably search for freelance sites, web design forums, or even craigslist before major search engines though. If there is anything else I might be able to help with, please feel free to contact me.
