DIY Website Builders Vs Custom Website Design

You’ve decided it’s time to build a website for your business. Now, all that remains is to decide whether you want to build it yourself using DIY site builders or hire a custom website design company in Torquay.

Website builders like Wix, Weebly, and even have become quite popular thanks to the freedom they allow anyone and everyone to build their own website. However, that does not necessarily mean you must try your hand at DIY website building.

We highly recommend that you hire a professional web design agency to build a custom website for you. Here are the reasons why.

Original, High Quality Website

DIY website builders make the task of building your own website quick and affordable. However, when you want a high quality website that will create a professional and lasting impression on visitors, hire a custom website design agency in Torquay.

Torquay Web Design offer custom web designs, based on the highest quality premium templates and customised to your requirements. As your agency, we will build a website customised to your requirements, your brand and your target audience.

Having built hundreds of websites for diverse industries, we understand what would deliver the best results. Let our experience, expertise, and skills work to your advantage.

Save Time and Money

Although website builders are easy to use, they still call for some learning curve. Moreover, if you have never built a website before, you will have to make a lot of decisions that may take a lot of your time.

For instance, what colour scheme would be best for your website? What sort of pictures should you use? What should go in the navigation menu? What about the footer? Not to mention Search Engine Optimisation which is probably the most important element of any website. And so on…

What may seem like a cheap option may end up taking a lot of your time away from your business, which may prove detrimental to your business.

Hire a custom website design agency in Torquay and save yourself a lot of time, money and energy.


You’ve built a website on Wix, Weebly or Shopify. Say after a year, you’ve decided to move to another platform perhaps either because your business model has changed, you want to scale up your operations or any other reason. Perhaps you want to change to your own hosting provider.

However, you cannot move your Wix, Weebly or Shopify website to another CMS. Nor can you move it to another hosting service.

A WordPress website is highly scalable and flexible. Your agency can help you make the most of your WordPress website. What’s more, you can host your WordPress website on any hosting service of your choice.

For all these and many more benefits, hire a custom website design agency in Torquay. Contact Torquay Web Design to discuss your project requirements or read more about our custom website designs.
