Own a website vs Rent a website
When setting up an official website, the shop owners must first decide whether to rent or own a website. This question is confusing to shop owners. In fact, shop owners can think of a website as a house, which people can either buy or rent. So, how to make the decision? The following sorts out the advantages and disadvantages of owning and renting websites. Let’s take a look!
Own a website
- Website’s ownership belongs to the shop owner
The biggest advantage of owning a website is that the ownership belongs to the shop owner. Therefore, the shop owner can make changes to the website at any time without the consent of the renting company.
- More secure
As the ownership belongs to the shop owner, the website won’t be shut down due to the close-down of the renting company.
- More expensive
Since owning a website is more difficult, the price is usually higher than renting a website.
Rent a website
- Lower price
Due to the low cost of renting a website, many businesses in the early stage will choose this option.
- Easy to set up
Renting a website does not require programming skills, so it is relatively simple for businesses to set up by themselves.
- Less flexible to customize
Because a renting website is usually built from templates, it’s less feasible to provide customized features for the shop owner.
- Shop owners need to design their own page layouts
When renting a website, the shop owner must design their own page layouts, which is time-consuming.
- Cost becomes higher for long-term usage
Because the shop owner needs to pay for the rent regularly, the accumulated price becomes higher when using it for a long time.
