Building a website can be a headache if you’re not really technically savvy. There are many websites that boast easy building with their easy tools.
They hook you with a promise of simplicity and speedy design, but when you get started it’s a different story. If you are not familiar with WordPress it can be quite confusing. By the time you really start to figure out what you are doing you get to the part where they try to convince you how much better the service is if you pay for it. If you have to pay for it anyway, you may as well pay someone to do it for you and save the headache.The old adage that you get what you pay for definitely holds true when it comes to domain, hosting, themes and plugins. When you use a free service you do have a lot of freedom with the design features. The problem is that there is no support, no documentation, and no updates. This can be a problem if your website is going to be around for a while.
It is often said that premium services come with cleaner codes and better functionality. In the technical world where things often don’t work as expected, support is crucial. Superior functionality is vital to a decent website.

Additionally you will have plenty of documentation and support. When you dive into the world of WordPress, domains, hosting, and codes, you are going to want this support.
Using the free service is a way to get started if you are technically savvy and you speak code. WordPress is really beginner friendly and there are plenty of plugins to expand capabilities. There are a lot of layouts to choose from and it is mobile friendly. WordPress is pretty flexible. You will have to choose a domain name and find a hosting plan that suits you.
