What else should you know about your WordPress website?
WordPress is not without ongoing costs – hosting is required which starts from free. Though you generally get what you pay for. In most cases I recommend the Siteground StartUp or GrowBig plans
, which start at $14.95 per month. And special deals can usually be found.
Other costs include the ownership of your own domain & email hosting (email is included in some website hosting – including the Siteground plans listed above). Certain plugins can also attract ongoing fees which will always be discussed prior to development.
Ecommerce sites can definitely be built with the WordPress CMS and the WooCommerce plugin. However, Shopify
is generally my preferred platform for eCommerce sites. See why here
