Custom Website vs WordPress Website

Are you deliberating on whether you need a custom-built website or a WordPress website? Here are some general guidelines so that you can make the correct decision, depending on your needs. Please note, these are just guidelines and talking directly to a web designer is recommended.

You will note that cost is not accounted for on this Infographic. In many cases, the cost of a custom website and a WordPress website are comparable. You may have certain ideas about which type of website costs more, however, the price tags of each type of website will depend on your specific web development requirements, as well as the designer you choose to go with.

Not every web designer provides all services, so you’ll need to figure out which one you need – a custom website built in HTML, a WordPress website or a different website solution altogether – and then ask relevant questions when requesting quotes from web designers.
