Since the launch of World Wide Web and the concept of internet, the websites have been created for sharing information, selling services, marketing and socializing purposes. These web pages may be generated from templates or are customized.

 

 

 

Web templates are pre-designed web pages which only need to be filled in with relevant content and pictures. The layouts, designs, structures and interfaces are all designed in the form of HTML templates and all you have to do is to write the suitable material according to the nature of your business to create a look and feel accordingly. People normally use web templates to save their time and money that they need to invest on hiring web designers and developers.

 

Custom websites, contrarily, are the web pages that are self-created and self-tailored. People go for this option when they want to design a highly personalized web page or website as per their own priorities and requirements.

 

Both the types offer some advantages as well as some drawbacks. Let’s have a look at some of the common aspects associated with the two types of web development.

 

 

Template Websites

Custom Websites

Adaptability

The template website can be adapted to your requirements, but not as much as custom websites.

Custom websites offer far more adaptability than the template based websites. Web designers and web developers are at complete liberty to incorporate the desired and required features.

Flexibility

Template websites do not possess flexibility. Once you have chosen a design, a pattern or a sequence in the form of a template, you are bound to stick to it.

On the other hand, Custom websites are just as much flexible as adaptable. Since a website is self-created, the developer knows the coding behind and hence any kind of changes can be made into it whenever it is required.

Cost Effectiveness

Template based websites are more cost friendly as compared to custom based websites. All you have to do is to buy an economical template that fits in your needs and you are to go on your own then.

Custom based websites get you to a bit higher costs in getting a designer. But, at the end you are happy and satisfied with the work because it is custom made as per your preferences and requirements.

Singularity

There are chances that the template you have purchased had been used by any other business as well. Template designs do take you away from being unique but that’s not altogether bad.  A common layout and design ends up giving a friendly experience to the user.

Nonetheless, if you do want to keep your website different and give a unique experience to your users, custom website must definitely be your choice.

 

Hence, no final word can be said on whether you should go for a template website or a custom built one. It all depends on your requirements, budgets and time allocated.  If you have a team to do the required brainstorming on your project and have quite a lot to spend on it, you should definitely give a treat of personalization to your website, but if it is a simple, common structure, with the most conventional features and attributes, there’s no use investing in a custom website.
