How much will my website cost?
This is everybody’s top question. Of course it is, we all need to know what the final bill will be before we commit to buying anything.
Ongoing Website Costs
A website is an ongoing resource and there are ongoing costs involved. The most basic requirements will be a domain name and web hosting but beyond that there are other options you may need, especially if you are running a business website. The form here shows those costs.
Website Build Costs
Now here’s where it gets more complicated because every website is different. The cost of a website build depends on how long it will take and how much you can contribute to the task. Look at a website build as you would a new bathroom. Do you want economy? classy? gadgets and gizmos? exotic materials and so on.
You can see that the price could range from a few hundreds to many thousands. Until we know exactly what you want we can’t give you a fair or realistic quote, only a vague guide price.
Speed and clarity make a site build more efficient and therefore lower cost. Indecision and frequent revisions mount up in time and add to the cost!
To achieve that speed, budget and quality try to provide all or most of these elements:
