When looking for an affordable website design, it is so important to consider the full cost of your website. So many “discount” website providers bait people in with free or cheap set-up costs only to lock them into unnecessary long-term monthly payments that cost much more in the long run. Many freelance web developers also offer relatively affordable web design, but not without a cost. It is rare to find a freelance web developer who can supply long-term, reliable, and affordable website maintenance. The freelance web design route often results in a website that is expensive or impossible to maintain. 

A cheap website design is almost always more expensive in the long run. You are better off budgeting for a website you may not be able to afford today than to settle for the lowest cost option that leaves you feeling locked into a website with unnecessary ongoing costs that end up costing you more in the long run. A truly affordable website design company will probably not be the cheapest option today – but they will be the most cost-effective option for you over the long haul.
