Website from Scratch vs using PaaS
A program from scratch using a programming language means developing a program using various programming languages such as C++, Python, and Java from the starting to the end where the developer develops their own programming codes without any assistance from other mediums such as platforms as a service. Similarly, using a platform as a service means a user uses other mediums such as Squarespace, GoDaddy, Wix, and Weebly to create a program rather than code the program by themselves. There is a huge difference between writing a program from scratch using a programming language and using a platform as a service in terms of expenses, time of delivery, customization, maintenance, and many more.
Developing a program from scratch is expensive in comparison to developing a program using a platform as a service because developing a program from scratch requires lots of tools, hardware, and software whereas developing a program from a platform as a service doesn’t require any specific hardware, software, and other tools while developing a program. Building a program from scratch is time-consuming rather than using a platform as a service because the developer has to develop the program from the start to the end developing their own programming codes which consume lots of time whereas building a program using a platform as a service doesn’t consume a high amount of time because the developer doesn’t need to code the program from the starting to the end which saves lots of time. High technical skills are required to develop a program from scratch, whereas to develop a program using a platform as a service doesn’t require high technical skills. Developing a program from scratch gives the developer more customization options due to which the developers can make changes and add features according to the necessity whereas, the customization option is limited in a program developed using a platform as a service and the developer. If the error occurs in the program made from scratch then it will be effective and quicker for the developer to fix the error because the developer is familiar with the code and the issue can be fixed quickly whereas, if the error occurs in the program developed from the platform as a service then it will be hard for the developer to fix the issue quickly and effectively because the developer isn’t familiar with the code that is written by other developers which causes a huge problem to the developer to solve the error.
Most business or individuals will have their own needs & necessity, and according to that the business or individual choose the method to develop the program. Some businesses or individuals might prefer a platform as a service because they have a low budget for the development of the program because developing a program requires high skill manpower, various hardware, and software that the business or the individuals couldn’t afford. Similarly, if the business needs a program immediately and has time limitations and the business doesn’t need high customization then the business or the individual would prefer a platform as a service because developing a program from a platform as a service doesn’t consume high time but limits the customization. On the other hand, if the business or individual has enough budget to fund the entire hardware, software, and other tools required to develop a program and doesn’t have any time limitations then the business would prefer to develop a program from scratch because developing a program from scratch offers many customization options and increase the scalability of the program. Similarly, developing a program from scratch helps the business to solve the error quickly and effectively because the developer will be familiar with the program code.
