    I want to start a new website for my Shop and I found a local company NiwTech https://www.niwtech.com and they offer me this, am just asking is this a good offer I have to start look somewhere else?



    1-Hosting and domain plan with Siteground

    NiwTech will advise the best plan for your business.
    Siteground is one of the best and most trusted providers globally for web hosting and domain registration.

    NiwTech do not charge any commission for web hosting or domain registration if this is done by you.
    SEMrush

    Cost: approximately £400 per annum, as this is via you and Siteground.


    2-Domain name

    One of the most important factors for domain name selection is that it is short and succinctly defines your product and services to the online market.

    NiwTech can provide you with a unique, concise domain name.



    3-Web design and development

    NiwTech will customise a prebuilt WordPress theme. The initial cost of the theme is paid by you. It is extremely important to note that although the general theme is purchased, this is the bare bones of the design of the website and NiwTech will fully customise this to ensure that your website is entirely unique.

    NiwTech does not charge any commission for a prebuilt web theme if it’s purchased by you.



    Timeframe:

    This stage can take a maximum of 1 month to complete.


    Cost:

    £1000 paid to NiwTech

    50% upfront and 50% once the web development is fully customised and completed

    You need to read online reviews of the company
    You need to talk to existing customers
    You need to view their current sites that they're running
    What are your skills?
    How much spare time do you have?

    If they're only going to sell you a WordPress site with a shopping cart you might as well DIY and put that £1000 towards a good theme and beer.

    You guys are still locked down, right? Put that downtime to good use.

    The quote and post does not indicate how many web pages will be part of the project. Is it expected to be 5, 50, or 500 pages? Makes a big difference, of course. The cost does sound high, unless there is something complicated or work intensive about the project.

    First, WordPress provides a variety of themes designs to choose from or if you are not satisfied with the ones provided you can download and install of your choice or even use your own unique's. I think nothing you need NiwTech to customize for you because WordPress provides you with all tools you need to customize and make your website unique.
    Secondly. To start a website/blog of course you need a web hosting and software. Web host is a company that stores all of the files for your website/blog and delivers them to the user when they type anything related with your domain.
    So, am not here to discourage you from using NiwTech or saying that NiwTech is bad, but to help with advise. Therefore, as you know WordPress is the most popular, customizable, and easiest to use. And to start a website and get it running you also need a web host.. For that case bluehost is one of the best to use and already being used my millions across the globe. Bluehost has been recommended by WordPress since 2005 and currently host over 2 million blogs and websites. It one of the largest and powers millions of websites.

    Blehost delivers to his customers 4 different plans all at a very cheaper price with each plan having a cool of different perks. That's is:
    1.Basic
    2. Plus
    3. Choice plus
    4. Pro
    Here are some of the features available:
    • unlimited websites
    • unlimited SSD storage
    • unmetered Bandwidth
    • FREE SSL certificate
    • unlimited domains
    • unlimited parked domains
    • unlimited subdomains
    • Spam experts and many more...
    Go and try basic plan if you have not tried before, then you will be adding some extra perks as you move on. Also WordPress have 24/7 customer support you can work with.

    Lastly for your domain name, have a descriptive domain associated with keywords of your particular subject to make users to easily locate your website.

    The choice is in you. It up to your decision.
    Keep smiling.

    You need to find reviews for this company, you might call them and ask some pre-sale questions.

    Do you have any background in building websites, wordpress, etc? If yes then you should go for a DIY as suggested above.
    If not then I guess £1000 is a bit expensive for building an e-commerce WordPress site.

    A little bit of Googling about the company and go through their portfolio and get in touch with people who got their work done from the company might help you.
