How to Build a GoDaddy Website


– Hey, everyone, I’m Emily. – I’m Darlene. – So you’ve decided to
build your website yourself and that is really awesome. – Yeah, go you. – But you should know that within the do it yourself category there are different options some a little more difficult than others. – Yeah. – And just like if you
were gonna hire a pro to build your website for you, there are things you
need to consider, budget. – Your time commitment. – What’s your technical know-how? – And then the complexity of your site. – Yeah, and today we wanna talk to you about those do it yourself tools, the differences between ’em, so that you can pick what’s
best for your business. (upbeat music) – So with the DIY website builder options, there’s gonna be an easier route. It’s obviously more template-based, a little bit more drag and drop, you’re gonna see the layouts there and you’re gonna pick and
choose what you want out of it. – Yeah, everything’s
right in front of you. What you see is what you
get with a template-based website builder and we’re
not saying you can’t have an amazing site using one of those, just know that there might be
a little bit more restrictions and some customization that you can’t do. – Yeah, some design elements that you might not get out of it. It’s a little bit more paint by numbers. – Yeah, so you’ve looked at some of the DIY template-based site builders and maybe you know that
they’re not gonna work for you. You already know your business enough, you’ve considered design elements that you’re gonna be using on your site and you know that you need
something a little more advanced. A do it yourself WordPress
site is a great option. – You can extend the
functionality of your site using plugins which are
applications that you’ll install in order to make those
features happen on your site. – Yeah, and we should
mention that WordPress itself is a free product but you are
gonna need to pay for hosting to support your website. So there is an additional cost. – Yeah, and the main difference between a DIY website
builder from a company is that you’re gonna be able
to contact their support when you’re needing help
with something for it and then versus WordPress where you’re kind of moving out of your
parents’ house for that one. – Yeah, it’s and open-source
product so there’s a lot of information you can find
online when you have questions but you’re not gonna be able
to call WordPress for help. So there are a couple of
options if you’re gonna build the website yourself. We’ve got the easy DIY
that’s template-based, a little more restrictive, and then there’s a more advanced option. – Yeah, you can go the WordPress route which is gonna take a bit more
time to get familiar with, you’re gonna have to
do a bit more research but the sky’s the limit on that one. – So get out there and
start building your website. I’m Emily. – I’m Darlene. – Thanks for joining us. (upbeat music)
