In continuation of my last post on ‘How to Create a Restaurant Website‘, I’ll tell you now that creating a website does not cost a fortune. Using is probably the most cost and time efficient way to build your own website. First, you won’t have to touch any code and Second, the template is already created for you. You just install it and start configuring your website from the backend. Your friends and visitors will think, wow, this person spent a lot of money and time to create this. But only you know that it was from a template. The cost to make a using theme “The Restaurant” will cost about $79. Click here for more details about the theme.

Here is the cost breakdown:
1. $45/year for Webhosting. You need a domain name and a webhosting service to build your website. I recommend Fatcow.com. Right now there is a 40% discount so I don’t know how long this promotional cost will last. Your webhosting cost at Fatcow.com includes a free domain name, unlimited emails, unlimited space, unlimited bandwidth, unlimited MYSQL databases and more. Click here for more info about Fatcow.com.
2. $0 for WordPress. WordPress is free and open source. You can download WordPress to play around with it from WordPress.org.
3. $35 for. “The Restaurant” price is a one time fee. It is not a reoccuring fee. Once you purchase it, it belongs to you. There is unlimited support and great documentation.
4. -$150 Advertising credits. If you purchased your webhosting from Fatcow.com, they include advertising credits worth $75 for Google Adwords advertising, $50 for Facebook advertising, and $25 for Yahoo/Bing advertising. This is a great deal.
That’s all the costs you need to incur to make your own here to demo “The Restaurant” WordPress theme.. I think if you have your own restaurant/service business you definitely need to create a for yourself. It’s part of building your image with your potential clients. Everyone searches online for a restaurant or business. It’s no longer satisfactory if you don’t have one already created. So Webhosting + WordPress + = $79. If you include the advertising credits you get back, you actually get back $46, basically not paying anything to setup your restaurant website. I think this is a great deal.
