Website Design

I do basic author websites with custom html and css. I will build a website for you on Wordpress, Weebly, or with plain HTML/CSS/Javascript.

Please be aware that I will not create content for you. I also don't do hosting or SEO. I just make everything look pretty and function correctly on an HTML-coding level.

Wordpress.com

Layout Customization

Wordpress has very limited customization. I can do fancy layouts, but they're a little harder to work with and might not turn out as well.

Forms

Forms in Wordpress are easy to set up and use. Any form submissions will be emailed to the owner of the Wordpress account.


Ease of Upkeep and Maintenance

Wordpress websites definitely the easiest to edit for amateurs or people who don't know much HTML or CSS coding. This is a good choice if you want a simple website that's easy to maintain.


Domains and Hosting

Free hosting if you keep the wordpress.com domain after your website. So, it'd be yourwebsitename.wordpress.com. They also offer hosting plans for a certain price a month, and will then let you use your own domain name (yourwebsitename.com).

Scripts

Wordpress sites are very limited script-wise.

Price

Price starts at $20 for a plain text, one-page site.

Weebly

Layout Customization

Weebly has more customization. Themes and drag-and-drop elements make building pages in Weebly a little faster and easier, but there are some limitations and your site might not run as fast because of Weebly's excess coding.

Forms

Forms in Weebly work in much the same way as they do in Wordpress.


Ease of Upkeep and Maintenance

Weebly websites, especially if I make you a custom theme, are a little more difficult to maintain and edit than Wordpress sites, but definitely aren't as involved as custom HTML websites. You might want to know a little bit of coding, but it won't really hurt you if you don't.


Domains and Hosting

Free hosting if you keep the weebly.com domain after your website. So, it'd be yourwebsitename.weebly.com. They also offer hosting plans for a certain price a month, and will then let you use your own domain name (yourwebsitename.com).

Scripts

Weedly can handle most scripts.

Price

Price starts at $20 for a plain text, one-page site if you want to use a stock theme.
If you want a custom theme, it starts at $50.

Custom HTML/CSS/Javascript

Layout Customization

Custom layouts have much more wiggle-room than even Weebly, so you can have almost any layout you want.

Forms

Forms are a little harder to set up, and therefore cost more to build, but have more options. You can choose to email the data to yourself or set up a database to collect it.


Ease of Upkeep and Maintenance

Custom websites are going to be a little confusing to edit. I'll leave comments and clues throughout the HTML code, to explain what goes where and point you toward which parts you may want to edit. I'll talk you through these when I send you the website. However, you might want to be at least a little familiar with HTML.


Domains and Hosting

If you want to order a custom website from me, you'll need your own hosting and domain. I use Ultra Web Hosting for this website. But some other options are Bluehost, HostGator, and InMotion.

Scripts

Every script, as long as it's supported by the company you're hosting through and isn't illegal or in poor taste, can be supported in a custom website.

Price

Price starts at $100 for a plain text, one-page site.

Web Banner Creation

Like the one at the top of this page, and the one at the top of the homepage with logo(s) and title(s). This is $40 on it's own, or $25 added to your website setup/web design fee. You'll need to provide me with, at the very least, your title and a logo image.
