Creating a Website from Scratch: Is it Hard or Easy?

If you have coding skills, you can create a website from scratch using just a code editor and HTML, CSS and JS libraries such as Bootstrap. However, this approach requires a lot of time, skill and experience. You can also hire a web developer to create a website for you. A simple site that only shows static text is very easy to create from scratch.

It takes a little time for beginners (CSS in particular can stumble beginners very easily), but it's not difficult.

Creating a website

with a free website builder is a quick, easy and straightforward process. You may have already signed up for a hosting account in Step 1, in which case your web hosting provider's site will have specific step-by-step instructions for you to install and use your included free website builder. Overall, we found that Wix is the most popular website builder, so we'll use that as an example here.

This is determined by user tests, which give participants a series of tasks and are asked to rate how easy (or difficult) they found them. So yes, creating a basic informational website can be quite easy, but once you start trying to make the website what you specifically want while the website is still effective and polished, that's where it becomes difficult to create. Something like a blog would be much more difficult, assuming you want the ability to add, edit and delete posts, not to mention a comment system. It's hard to beat web hosting by a dollar a month, especially when the company includes a free domain name, a control panel, blazing fast load times, and unlimited websites with most plans. So, how hard is it to create a website with functions such as blog, gallery with some photos or videos? Some do this through templates, others through drag-and-drop interfaces, which makes creating websites no more difficult than putting together a PowerPoint presentation.

Ensuring that people can find your website is key to a good website marketing strategy, and not that difficult to do. In conclusion, creating a website from scratch requires coding skills and experience. However, if you are just starting out and want to create an informational website or blog with basic features such as galleries or videos, then using free website builders or templates is an easy way to get started.
