Looking for low cost web design work


I am currently prototyping my web application. I need a web designer or in lieu of that, a good resource where modern web application templates (web 2.0 in style) can be purchased. The template sites I've seen are somewhat behind the times.

my budget is quite limited. Any recommendations?

Check out Wordpress and ThemeForest. For under $50 you can build yourself a well designed and modern website.

  • +1 for recommending Themeforest. A very underrated and valuable resource for themes. – Digital Sea 13 years ago


To elaborate on what Andy has said. I would suggest you register a GoDaddy economny hosting at a cost of 7 dollars a month and then use their turnkey system to use get Wordpress working. From there, you could use one of their defualt themes or a template from one of the template stores such as the one that Andy has pointed out.

For another question that was closed I wrote following:

Unless you plan to do some really
insane stuff with this website. I
really think you should just go with
GoDaddy Economy hosting. You can have
a CMS as Wordpress, Drupal, Or Joomla
and they can handle the database and
website set up. There is a turnkey
process for this. The cost? 6 dollars
a month. It doesn't really get any
cheaper or easier than this. Since
they also sell domains, you can easily
get your domain to point towards that

Economy Hosting:

their tools and without prior

Old post: Website hosting The cheapest web designer is no web designer at all. :)

I'm not a GoDaddy employee or anything. I just know they can get things done and FAST.

I've used themeforest to buy a theme for a prototype I built a few month back. They have a pretty large choice for very cheap. I bought mine for $12.. Careful there is a $2 fee for Paypal payment but anyway. It had a login screen template and a full page with plenty of divs that I've used an reused very easily. I found it to be a good experience overall.
