Plan that let’s you customize HTML, CSS and JS freely

I am an individual on a tight budget (not a business) and would like have the option to fully customize a WordPress theme. I’ve taken a look into wordpress.com/pricing but it’s unclear whether the ‘Personal’ plan would allow me to fully customize any themes. Does the ‘Personal’ plan let you modify the HTML, CSS and JS or is the ‘Creator’ plan the only option for this?

  1. On [WordPress.com](http://WordPress.com), the ability to fully customize the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript of your theme is limited to higher-tier plans. Here’s a breakdown of what each plan offers regarding customization:

    [**WordPress.com**](http://WordPress.com) **Plans**

    1. **Personal Plan**:

    • **Cost**: $4/month (billed annually)

    • **Customization**: Allows for basic customization like changing colors and fonts using the Customizer. However, it does not support custom HTML, CSS, or JavaScript editing.

    2. **Premium Plan**:

    • **Cost**: $8/month (billed annually)

    • **Customization**: Offers additional customization options, including the ability to add custom CSS. However, it still does not allow direct HTML and JavaScript editing within themes.

    3. **Business Plan**:

    • **Cost**: $25/month (billed annually)

    • **Customization**: Provides access to all theme files, enabling full customization of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. This plan also allows you to install third-party themes and plugins.

    4. **eCommerce Plan**:

    • **Cost**: $45/month (billed annually)

    • **Customization**: Similar to the Business plan, it allows full theme customization including HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

    [**WordPress.org**](http://WordPress.org) **(Self-Hosted)**

    If you’re on a tight budget and need full control over your theme customization, using [WordPress.org](http://WordPress.org) with a self-hosted setup might be a more cost-effective solution. Here’s what you need:

    1. **Domain and Hosting**:

    • **Cost**: Varies, typically between $3 to $10 per month for basic shared hosting plans.

    • **Providers**: Bluehost, SiteGround, Hostinger, and other similar services.

    2. **WordPress Installation**:

    • **Cost**: Free

    • **Customization**: Full access to all theme files, allowing you to edit HTML, CSS, and JavaScript freely.

    **Recommendations**

    • **If You Want Full Control and Are on a Tight Budget**: Consider a self-hosted [WordPress.org](http://WordPress.org) setup. This gives you complete access to all theme files and allows for extensive customization.

    • **If You Prefer the Simplicity of WordPress.com**: The Business plan is the minimum plan that allows full HTML, CSS, and JavaScript customization.
