How to Start an Online Hotel Booking Website?

It’s really not that tough as it seems. To develop a hotel booking website, first you either need to have your own website or hire someone to develop it from scratch. From my own perspective, i would choose to utilize any of the open-source (a software with source code that anyone can inspect, modify, and enhance) platforms to develop my website.

To develop a website using open source platforms has its own rewards. It provides quality, lower cost, flexibility, reliability, and avoids the Vendor lock and that’s why the majority of the businesses choose open source e-commerce software rather than proprietary ones.

Some of the open source e-commerce platforms that you can use to create your store-front for free are – Magento, Opencart, WooCommerce, Prestashop, CS-Cart, and etc.

There are of course other fees that must be taken into consideration when utilizing an open source e-commerce platform. The platform must be hosted on some server which usually incurs a subscription fee. Incorporating API’s or custom modifications generally also cost some fee.
