What is a Custom Websites?

Aren’t all websites custom websites? Not really.  Although the domain name and content may be different, many websites are hosted and served at website factories.

Custom Websites at Foggy Bottom Web Design

They use templates that severely restrict changes that you may want to make.  They have rules about the operating environment that may keep you from being able to email all your clients, show videos or build a social community.

Templates, themselves, are neither good nor bad.  They are simply a place to begin developing the website.  Often they present an underlying, tested architecture that developers like because they don’t have to re-invent the wheel.  But it is shortsighted to insist that a client use a template when his needs indicate another direction.

Templates are different from themes. Templates control how a website page works. Themes control how a website page looks. 

Some templates are locked into a particular theme, which is a clue that they are stuck in the late 90’s in terms of website development. 

The point to keep in mind is that trading the freedom of building your website to be exactly what you want it to be should never be sacrificed for the expediency of getting a site on-line.  If you don’t have the time to do it right, do you have the time to do it over?
