To start with, what is a website template itself?
According to Techopedia, “a website template is a predesigned resource that shows the structure of the comprehensive layout and display features of any website. It is provided by various suppliers to help make Web design a lot easier for designers.”
“A website template is also known as a Web page template or page template.”
“Essentially, a website template gives designers relatively easy ways to plug content into a sophisticated framework built through classic Web languages such as HTML and CSS. A website template may include carefully laid out titles, square or round images, background banners, stripes and other layout features, as well as styled and laid out typography. Designers can take advantage of these templates and simply swap in their own data and images to get a very elaborate Web style without writing any codes themselves.”
Website templates prices range from a few dollars, say $2 and several millions of dollars.
