What you need to think about is how comfortable you are using a computer. Are you computer literate? Can you use a computer confidently and find your way around online? Do you know how to setup your email?
Can you follow online guides and tutorials? This skill will come in useful to help you setup the hosting, domain name and install a content management system so you can add content to your website.
Can you carry out research using a computer to find out how to do things, the best hosting company to use etc.?
If you can answer yes to the above questions, then you probably have enough knowledge and understanding to be able to embark on the website setup and design adventure.
If you have some of the skills above, but the actual setting up of a website is a little confusing, perhaps you should use a web design company to help you with the initial process. They can provide you with a content management system, in effect a website shell, and you can add or amend the content yourself.
If the above questions baffle you, perhaps you should use the skills of a good web design company to help you set up your website. You can ask them for a content management system and one-to-one tutorials to help you learn how to amend the content yourself. Or you can ask them about a maintenance package and they will carry out amendments and updates for you.
