What Cost is involved for a WordPress Website?
Everyone knows WordPress is free and is a good tool to build a blog or a website. Lots of free & paid Themes, Plugin and Widgets make it really interested and useful to choose WordPress as a ready made tool to renovate or build your next website. So there is no cost to it. But, installing WordPress, choosing a theme and plugin is not all. Its just a beginning, check out how.
Actual cost involvement:
- Upgrade: WordPress has a nice ‘Upgrade’ button but it goes expensive when you need to hire someone to fix your website if something goes wrong during upgrade.
- Your choice of Theme, Widget and Plugin may not support the newer version of WordPress which would mean hiring original authors of those theme/plugin/widget or an outside resource.
- Security: being an OpenSource and free tool, its vulnerable to infections. Ongoing monitoring is very much required which adds a significant cost.
- Customization: Making custom changes becomes expensive specially when changes are required with plugins / widgets
