OK, I don’t often link to other web design companies blog posts, but this one was too good to not share. It’s from a web design company over in London, England called Four to the 4. The company’s owner, Geoff, takes a look at how discount website builders don’t give you your money’s worth, even when they are free.
His major points include:
- Their designs are typically not very good and are usually built using outdated technology.
- They use a very small number of designs for their customers, making thousands of websites look almost exactly like your website.
- Free doesn’t usually mean free. It means free for the trial period.
Anyway, it’s a good, quick read if you are considering going with a do-it-yourself type website, so head over and check it out.
