I've said this before, and I'll say it again. The best way to create a website is still WordPress. Installing a self-hosted WordPress website on a hosting account using a WordPress theme is still the best method. Lacking experience or getting cold feet is not a feesable excuse when there're super affordable website packages out there that will set everything up for you. My Affordable Website Package includes a WordPress website, hosting, email, email list, SEO, a custom logo, and continual support for as cheap as the market will allow.
Why self-hosted WordPress is still the best website setup
- WordPress has the largest developer base, thanks to the fact that it's open source, unlike Tumblr, and Blogger.
- WordPress has the most plugins.
- WordPress has the most custom themes to choose from.
- WordPress themes are some of the most aesthetic themes on the market.
- WordPress is stable. The plugins have such a wide user base, the sheer number of comments and ratings make it clear which plugins work and don't work.
- WordPress has more options including SEO options. This makes WordPress the most SEO friendly website option on the market.
