How much does it Cost to Build a WordPress Website

by Elaine on February 16, 2011

Creating your own Wordpress website is easy.  It just depends on what you want to build it for.  For example, if you are looking for some Wordpress premium themes to transform your website to look like a Magazine or News website you will have to look for a premium theme that will accomplish that for you.    WordPress can basically do anything you want.  You can even create an eCommerce Website from WordPress.  But if you just want to create your own blog in WordPress it’s very simple.  Actually you have 2 options.

1.  Create your WordPress website for free.

Yes free.  You can go to WordPress.com and they will host free blogs.  The only thing you can’t do it put up affiliate links on your website, cannot install your own themes, cannot install your own plugins, cannot edit the themes and some other restrictions.  But basically you can create a blog, be part of a WordPress network, see pages of free templates, create multiple blogs and manage them together.   I find this way a really good option is all you want to do is create your own personal blog.  If you already have a domain name you can link your domain name to the WordPress.com managed website as well.  If not, WordPress will give you a domain name  that will look something like this :  “YOURsite.wordpress.com”.

2.  Create your WordPress website for about $56/year.

WordPress is free open source software.  All you need to purchase is webhosting and a domain name.   If you purchase webhosting from Fatcow.com, it costs $56/year.   Fatcow.com also gives you a free domain name, unlimited space, unlimited email addresses, host unlimited domain names, 24×7 support, $150 in ad credits and more.   There is quick and easy WordPress install as well.  Once you install WordPress on your Fatcow.com hosting account all you need to do is set it up.  There are screens that will guide you step by step.  It’s quick and painless and in less than 5 minutes you will have a functioning WordPress website.
