For the time being, let's talk about websites. A WordPress-themed website or the services of a web developer to code your website or blog are likely to be on your list of considerations if you've ever considered having one or starting one. Before we get into the specifics of the best options to choose from, let's first get a clear picture of what we're talking about. What exactly is WordPress, and how does it work? WordPress is a web publishing platform that allows you to create websites and blogs by utilizing the template-based design. WordPress can be thought of as a web operating system in the same way that Windows, iOS, and Android are thought of as desktop operating systems. To be clear, WordPress is also a computer program.

So, which one do you think you should choose? Is it better to purchase a WordPress theme or hire a web developer to code a website from the ground up? Let's use this analogy to provide an answer to this question. Consider the following scenario: you want to relocate to a new home. The first option is to either move into a pre-existing home or to construct a new home from the ground up according to your preferences. WordPress is represented by the pre-built house in the preceding illustration. The latter, on the other hand, is creating the website from the ground up.

WordPress is a template-based platform, which means that almost everything is already coded for you; all you have to do is choose a template that you like and customize it to your specifications. It's the same as looking for a well-built house that meets your needs and falls within your budget. Another advantage of WordPress is that it has evolved over time to the point where you can now create a fully functional website (including e-commerce) without having to write a single line of code. It is true that you do not have to be a web programmer in order to use the tool.

But! This is something that we should be aware of as a society. We must also look at the code in the back-end. The rationale behind the creation of the website If my website is a web application that allows users to check their account balances, what should I do? Unlikely that WordPress will assist me and that we will need to use code, if my website is intended to be a catalog of my products, WordPress might be of assistance.

It is a disadvantage to hiring a developer to code a website because of the expense. Generally speaking, web developers are more expensive than WordPress designers. Furthermore, developing a website from the ground up takes longer than using a website design template. But the advantage is the use of code will be extremely beneficial when creating business applications or making your website more transactional.

WordPress is restricted in terms of design, features, and customization due to the fact that it is based on templates. It is at this point that having a developer on your team is extremely beneficial. A wide range of options is available when it comes to website design and user experience when you code your own website. A web developer is also an excellent choice if you like to stand out from the crowd or if you have a strict brand guide that must be followed.
