If your website is basic or follows the format of a blog, it may not be as much of trouble manage one on your own, but if you intend to update your pages and its design regularly, and expect to maintain dynamic pages, it is recommended that you weigh your options with hiring a professional team with whom you can negotiate a bulk rate on the project and acquire an annual contract for site maintenance.

If your project seems to be too ambitious, opt to hire web design professionals who are in the position to help you achieve your targets. As long as you are not compromising on quality and meeting your customer demands, you are free to make your own decisions.
