How to build a website with ChatGPT


Integrating AI for building websites is slowly becoming the norm as it enables the developer to do a quick and precise job. There are interesting tools that help the developer build websites. ChatGPT, developed by OpenAI, is the most popular and most common one. And then you have Copilot. This tool is primarily aimed at developers as it helps in coding suggestions, with documentation, makes real-time error detection, has multiple programming language support, and so on. And then you have Amazon codeWhistper (with ChatGpt making large strides, how can Amazon fall far behind in the game?). In this article, we will be talking about how ChatGPT can be leveraged to create websites that resonate with people’s interests. 

Benefits of building a website with AI tools

It is the unparalleled speed and efficiency of AI tools that prompt developers to use this method in website development. Check out the other benefits of using the tools.

Automating code writing process – AI can automate the process involved in code-writing, content creation, design creation, and so on. This is done by taking natural language descriptions and generating codes from them naturally. 

In-built SEO optimisation – Many AI tools offer in-built SEO optimization and this can improve the website’s search engine ranking and performance. It can also speed up and automate repetitive tasks like keyword research, content creation, link building, etc. However, one disadvantage is that you have limitations with customisation. 

User-friendly website – With AI tools, anyone can become a website builder because all the complicated things will be handled by the tool. So even if you don’t have much experience in building a website, and are a novice at it, you can utilise the tool to create a simple website. Once again, if you need the website to portray your brand identity, you need to hire a developer to make it unique and aligned with your brand theme and values.  

Enhanced UX – AI lets you objectively design websites. Since web designers are not data analysts, it is not always possible for them to create websites that relate to people’s needs, AI helps build websites that align with people’s requirements. The layout of the website will be gathered from accurate statistical data on the internet, and so this naturally enhances the design immensely and will be based on what people want. 

Scale at will – With the adoption of AI tools like ChatGPT, you can easily scale your website. For example, if you have an ecommerce website, and need to add more products and descriptions, the tool can automatically make the required changes. You can quickly have new pages added, and with the developer’s help, you can analyse it for accuracy and make it go live. 

What roles can ChatGPT do to help create excellent websites

Keeping the benefits in mind, it is only understandable why ChatGPT is the most prominently used tools for website development. But to make the most of the benefits of the AI tool, you need to know how to use it effectively. Learning how to use the tool cleverly will bring remarkable results. 

Project requirements

Before going on with a ChatGPT-created website, ensure your developer is fully aware of the project settings. This way the developer will be able to guide the tool effectively to create the website in the exact manner that’s required. When you clearly outline the structure and features of the website, the website will come out in a manner that makes it easier for the developer to make the necessary tweaks.

Understanding the target audience

If you want the tool to create content and align the design with the needs of the audience/visitor you need to send out the correct prompts. You can use the HTML code to create the header, footer, and menu of the page and then go deeper into the prompts to make sure it addresses the business’s requirements. You can create a generic website with the tool, but you will still need to personalise it with your business and make sure it is something the target audience wants to respond to. The developer and content team will still need to cross-check the facts and tweak the content accordingly. 

Integrating and training ChatGPT to your website

ChatGPT is no magic wand that you can wave and create websites magically. The developer has to use his potential to set up the right development environment, selecting the web hosting service, domain name, etc. The developer can use the tool to design the website and embed ChatGPT directly into the website. He will then authenticate the website’s requests to the ChatGPT API after procuring the API keys and authentication tokens from the tool’s platform.

Training the tool is the next task because the tool isn’t intuitive. The developer trains the tool so that it churns out accurate and relevant responses. This is done by adjusting the parameters. Developers integrate chatbots using ChatGPT and then train them iteratively so they handle user queries and requests accurately. With the help of natural language processing, developers can extract the right information and deliver accurate responses. 

Identifying what the ChatGPT cannot do

Limitations of ChatGPT are one of the first things that the developer should be aware of. Understanding what limitations those could be will help the developer use his creativity, skills, and originality in turning the odds in his/her favour. 

Not original codes

ChatGPT codes are not original codes because they are created from ideas that are pre-existing and are scattered across the internet. Skilled developers will be able to understand where ChatGPT derived the codes from. So the developer will not be able to copyright the work, simply because the code snippets come from training data.

Navigate the needs of your client

ChatGPT is a tool, and it might even work like a robot. But it cannot read the mind of the client, and create designs that align with client priorities. Human touch coupled with emotional intelligence, understanding of business goals, and market trends win hands-on every day. So as long as that cannot be something the tool can do, developer jobs remain unthreatened.

Not as novel as you want it to be

ChatGPT is not a companion for unchartered territory. True, the tool can extract codes from the ends of the earth, or the internet perhaps, but when you are looking for originality, it is better to give it a rest and go for a real developer with skills. ChatGPT can only work with the information that is there, but it pales in comparison with the human spark and skill. 

Comes with no ethical compass

True, ChatGPT is often the friend that rescues when the developer is strapped for time, and needs to churn codes, especially with the repetitive tasks. But it truly is immune to societal implications and will not consider the ethical considerations when crafting codes, because it doesn’t know how to navigate the complexities in that. 


ChatGPT is an incredible tool that will ease the developer’s job. And it will aid the developer in his task, and guide him through the repetitive tasks involved in building a website developer. This is also why it is important to hire a developer who can understand the limitations and the advantages of the tool. A developer who uses the tool to make his job faster while manually covering the other aspects is a sure winner.
