    Creating of a website/banner ?

    "Creating of a website for example.com."
    "Creating of a flash banner for example.com."

    Are these sentences correct or not? Thanks in advance.

    They are not sentences. Are you proposing them as possible web addresses?

    So, let assume this type of conversation between two people:

    1st person: How much did you pay for creating of your website?

    2nd: Creating of my website costs me $1000.


    What is wrong with the verb "create"? Or should I use "Creation"? I'd rather use verb if it is grammatically possible.

    Is it better to use "build"?

    but for me it sis stupid to say I have build this banner.

    It is better to say: I have created this website, I have created this banner.

    Is Creating of a website grammatically incorrect?

    This would be a natural response.

    What is wrong with the verb "create"? Or should I use "Creation"? I'd rather use verb if it is grammatically possible.

    Is it better to use "build"? You could say "building your website".

    but for me it sis stupid to say I have build this banner.

    It is better to say: I have created this website, I have created this banner. These are both fine.
