Create your website: like the adage says; all routes leads to Rome, there are many ways to create a website. One can use a content management system, like WordPress . One can also edit a template. There are millions of ‘freemium’ and premium templates out there. My favourate template website is w3layouts. Another way to get a website design is to use website builder application like Wix an online website builder. And if you are conversant with HTML and CSS, you can as well write you own codes to design your own web pages.
