In order to build a website, the availability of a reliable and easy to use website builder is very important. Considering that there is so much website design software available in the market that it can be a hard decision to select one.
Almost all web hosting companies provide web site builder software. Most of it is online and is specific to each web hosting provider. With this, one need not to purchase software separately or bother about its maintenance.
But the problem is that with the above type of software availability, one actually becomes tied up with a specific company. Real difficulty arises when it is desired to change a web hosting provider.
If one wants to change a web hosting company, he can no longer use a hosting provider's software or they will put a disclaimer on each page of one's website.
The point to emphasize is that it is not prudent to use web site builder of the web hosting company. One should have one's own software so that one can switch a web hosting company anytime without any glitches. One should have complete control on one's website.
But a good web site builder is not cheap. One will have to spend hundreds of dollars to buy a good software like FrontPage or Dreamweaver.
Many people have been using FrontPage as it has been freely available with MS office. But with its discontinuity now by Microsoft, many hosting companies do not support FrontPage extensions anymore. In future, this service may not be available at all. So it is time to stop using FrontPage.
It will be worth buying site building software. But many a times, especially for those who are new to online business or internet, saving every dollar is of high priority.
For all those who do not want to spend big bucks on a web site, and also want to be in complete control with ease, there are free and affordable resources available to accomplish the job.
