In other words, the high quality and low cost of website development can really go together.
Most novice webmasters are not aware of the website development cost and the factors that determine the cost of website development.
You may refer to one of my previous blogs where I had shared some of the major factors that determine the website design cost.
In this blog post, I have shared some useful tips for you to create a cheap website for you while maintaining quality standards.
#1 Go for WordPress web design
I am sure you already know how reliable and cost-effective WordPress CMS is. If you don’t know, let me give you a brief.
WordPress is no more just a blogging platform.
With thousands of plugins available in the WordPress community, you can build almost any kind of website.
Really, any kind of website!
How WordPress is cost-effective?
WordPress is an open-source CMS and it’s free to download.
The only cost that’s required to build a website using WordPress is when you purchase a WordPress theme and when you hire a WordPress website developer to customize the design of your website theme.
You may also need to hire a WordPress developer if you want to customize any plugin or create a new plugin according to your specific requirements.
Of course, you will have to pay for your website domain and hosting charges. But that’s quite nominal and inexpensive.
Is WordPress safe to use?
During conversations with my clients, I get to know that almost all of them have had bad experiences with WordPress, especially when it comes to the security of their website.
The only explanation that I always give is ‘If you maintain your website regularly, you will never face any security problems such as the attack of malicious codes, virus injections, hacking, and so on.‘
Now the question is, how many webmasters really maintain their websites. Very few. I know that.
Website development is not a one-time thing. Be it WordPress or any other CMS, you will certainly need to maintain it regularly.
Then why should we blame WordPress?
The only reason I think WordPress can easily become a victim of such security attacks is because of its huge popularity.
Since WordPress one of the most popular and has the highest number of downloads, it’s always on the top priority of hackers and attackers too.
In other words, WordPress is loved by webmasters, website developers & hackers too. Just a joke 🙂
Coming back to the cost-effectiveness of a website, choosing WordPress can really lower down the overall cost of your website development.
#2 Go for a cheap web hosting
Web hosting is something that you can’t judge its reliability by its cost.
Sometimes you may end up paying a lot of money to your web hosting company without getting high-quality services such as acceptable speed, performance, and support.
And fortunately, there are many affordable web hosting companies that offer low-cost web hosting packages and provide excellent services.
What’s the solution here? How to decide?
Compare, review and choose the best & affordable web hosting servers for your website.
There are many websites like web-hosting.best8reviews.com where you can compare & choose the best yet cheap hosting company for your website at an affordable price.
There are also several web hosting plans exclusively for WordPress websites that are economical and at the same time perform well for WordPress.
Below are some essential qualities that you must look out for in your web hosting provider:
- 24/7 Support
- High-performance servers
- One-click WordPress installation
- Online chat support
- Affordable packages
- Good reviews from other customers
#3 Hire a pro wordPress developer
Although creating a basic website using WordPress is not a challenge and can be done by anybody with a little technical knowledge.
But if you are looking for a professional website, you definitely need an experienced website developer.
Don’t worry about your website design budget.
Hiring an experienced WordPress developer in Singapore won’t cost you much. Which means you can still get a cheap website when you hire a professional Singapore WordPress developer.
Moreover, it will make your life easier when you hire an experienced developer.
Below are some of the major benefits of hiring an experienced WordPress developer:

Why WordPress developers are affordable?

Due to the stiff competition, most WordPress developers will be ready to work for you at affordable prices.
The best approach to get a cheap website is to buy a WordPress theme and hire a web developer who could assist you with its customization.

#4 Go for a template
There is an ongoing debate on the topic ‘whether you should go for a template web design or custom web design’ and here’s my take on this.
If you are a small business in Singapore or a startup company, there is no harm to choose templates for your website development.
Going with a readymade template eventually helps you to cut down your website development cost and you can a great yet cheap website.
Again, choosing WordPress CMS for your website development can save you money. There are thousands of great WordPress themes that are available at nominal costs and can give your website a stunning look.
What if you want to customize or change any part of your template design?
No problem. You can hire affordable WordPress developers who could help you with WordPress theme customization.
#5 Learn the backend
One of the major reasons for choosing WordPress for your next website development is its easy-to-manage backend.
Yes, all you need is a little experience in computer operation, internet surfing, and basic training in WordPress.
Don’t get mislead by the word ‘WordPress training’. You don’t need to attend 2 or 3 days workshops because here you just want to manage your website content.
So a brief 2 hours training will suffice.
But this short training will help you to save your hundreds, if not thousands of dollars.
Because every time you need some changes to be done on your website, your web design company may charge you. Why should you pay a website designer for such small changes when you can do them yourself, right?
The website developer that you will hire for your website development can provide you with a manual to operate your website on your own.
You can also ask your WordPress developer to provide you with a short on-site training so that you can learn easily.
It’s a myth that you can’t get a cheap website of good quality.
If you know how to break-up the cost and choose the best yet affordable resources (as explained above), you can really save your hard-earned money.
