Websites are like houses

When explaining the elements of building a website, a lot of instructions employ a house as an analogy. The hosting service is the street, the URL is the house number, the style is the graphic design, etc., etc.

I would like to take that analogy one step further: the more square footage and amenities you add, the more it costs and the harder it is to maintain:

  • The more rooms you have (pages), the more cleaning (content management) is needed.
  • The more doors and windows you have (ie. site vulnerabilities), the more places your can be broken into (or hacked)
  • The more furniture and decor you have (graphics and images), the more space and storage you need (ie. disk space)
  • The more luxury amenities you have (swimming pools, tennis courts, in-home theaters), the more specialized trades people you need to have on speed dial for emergencies and repairs (ie, developers and consultants)
  • And, of course there is the initial cost of the home (purchase price) to cover the cost of the real estate itself
480 sqft, $59,999
2,600 sqft, $424,000

Of course, all of this adds up to more expense, more management and more time.

Why buy a mansion when you can buy a tiny house and live comfortably and stress free?

A-praised-website.com encourages simplicity to make web management easier. We won’t sell you on apps and features that add bloat and expense. We will walk through a “discovery” phase to identify only what features you need. We will deliver a site that works hard for you–so you are not working hard on your site.
