Where to get website built for construction company ?

My father has a small construction company and he has bugged me about a website for a while now.
Last week he received a phone call from Designnrank, I guessed they somehow found him from local newspper, or yellowpages
They sent him a mock up of his website, so now he's all excited to get a website done.

Anyway, looking to get a website done for him, simple brochure style, no payment methods, info, gallery, contact us
What is aproximate cost, and how do you go about obtaining domain ?

You can easily go to sites like https://www.namecheap.com/ or https://domains.google/intl/en_ca/ to get a domain name your dad likes. If you are comfortable enough, try to use the service from https://www.wix.com/ to create and build the site by yourself for your dad's business. Of course, there are always a few other alternatives like what's mentioned below:

Simply Google it and you will find more info.

Good luck with site building for your dad! Another digital construction work! :-)

Do not ever hire and scum that cold calls or emails you. I suggest build a simple website on Wordpress.

My issue with wordpress is the security aspect. I've had a few clients who've been hacked (if you're hosting on your own). I prefer the SaaS options like Squarespace. Their designs are also responsive, so they work on different devices like mobile, desktop, etc.

If you have your own domain and you want to play around with a wordpress install, I can give you a temporary hosting account for free.

Domains & paid web hosting - godaddy is usually the top one that comes to mind, but their excessive attempts at getting you to buy other products is terribly annoying.

There's this government funded program called ShopHere for those who qualify: https://programs.digitalmainstreet.ca/shophere-signup

They will supply .CA domain and the design. The platform is Shopify/Square. But if you don't need any transaction, maybe you can ask them to build the most economical option.

Otherwise, as others mentioned WordPress can be a solution. Gl!
