Frequently Asked Questions

The average cost for designing and developing a website ranges from $1000 to more than $100,000.

Startups and Small Businesses

If you’re a small business or startup a less complex, basic web site offers a cost-effective option. The web design cost is ranging from $1000 to $6,000. Your company will get a credible, user-friendly site that can start driving purchases, quote requests, phone calls, and more.

Medium-Sized Businesses

The range for SMB websites can vary significantly - from $6,000 to $50,000. You will get a well-designed, performance-driven website that includes a set of different features, like a Content Management System (CMS)q e-commerce functionality, payment integrations, or copywriting, to meet your company’s unique needs.

Enterprise-level websites

The most expensive websites are enterprise-level websites that provide deep integration with back-office systems such as stock management, ERP, and CRM platforms. This type of website is custom-designed and requires a high level of coding knowledge to create a robust and reliable platform capable of supporting large organizations.

Enterprise sites typically cost between, $20,000 to $100,000 but there is no limit to what you can spend.

There are two major approaches when it comes to the initial step of designing a website: the decision to create a custom website from scratch or to use a template website. Both options have their pros and cons and serve a different purpose for different types of businesses (or businesses that are in different stages of life).

Templated website design

The cost of a basic site built on a template ranges from about $1,500 to $6,000, depending on the amount of customization required. Using a professionally designed template can save you thousands in both design and development costs. But it comes with a few disadvantages: they lack distinctiveness and customization. Perhaps the biggest setback is that template websites tend to all look the same and you will still have to pay for any feature you need which is not provided by the template.

It’s good for startups and micro-businesses that don’t need the kind of customization required by larger companies.

Bespoke custom website

Custom-built websites are tailored solely towards your business; every aspect is designed in the best interest of your business and you have complete control over the look. Custom-built websites are flexible and will grow as your business grows.

A well-designed website is a powerful tool in your marketing and branding toolbox. Your website is a representation of your company and can draw potential customers into choosing your service or product.

If your business requires custom design work to fit your brand and better communicate your brand message, it’s a good idea to spend the extra and go for a professional business class website.

One of the most common questions is, “Why do prices vary so much?”

Website design cost is influenced by many factors including the platform it is built on, what features must be integrated, how many pages are required, and how much bespoke code needs to be written.

Bespoke design websites cost significantly more than the templated websites

One of the biggest aspects affecting website cost is whether the site is based on templates or designed from scratch (find out more above).

Number of pages

In most cases, the cost scales off the number of pages:

  • 1 to 10 pages costs between $1000 to $2000
  • 10 to 50 pages costs between $2000 to $3000
  • 50 to 150 pages costs between $3000 to $6500
  • 150 to 250 pages costs between $6500 to $10,000

The technologies that are used to develop the website

Websites could be built upon popular platforms like WordPress, Drupal, Magento, etc, or they could be custom coded from scratch.

At present, various modern technologies are used to create interactive sites: PHP, ASP, Perl, JSP, CSS, Angularjs, Laravel, React, Ruby on Rails, DB2 databases, MsSQL, Oracle, Access, etc. Usually, the complexity and the functionalities of the website determine the technologies that will be used.

Copywriting

You can write your own web content, and many businesses do. It’s usually a mistake. Writing for the web is a specialized skill, just as web design is. Your content has the biggest effect on your success with search and conversions.

The price varies from $60 to $300 per page.

SEO

As a general rule, your website is not going to be visible just because you launch it. You have to draw it to the attention of the search engines. This involves both onsite and offsite optimization.

Onsite optimization means building and writing the website in such a way that the search engines, as well as the human visitors, find it appealing. This makes an enormous difference to the success of your website. Many sites have been built without any understanding of SEO and are therefore not doing their job.

This is a specialized skill, and you have to expect to pay for it.

The on-page optimization may vary from $800 to $1500, and more depending on the scale of your website and the level of optimization you want.

With responsive or dynamic design, your website will adapt to every device, which makes viewing your site on phones, tablets, and desktops seamless. In the age of mobile devices, all custom-made websites can and should be designed to be mobile-friendly. Responsive design will give you a much-needed edge on your competition, allowing your website to rank better in Google searches.

With more than 50 percent of the world’s Internet traffic coming from mobile devices, it’s essential that your website features a mobile-friendly or responsive design. If not, your company risks losing valuable customers and credibility.

Responsive design costs from $1000 to $3000, on average.

If you want to make sure your webpages rank well in search engines, it's essential to make sure that your new website will be optimized for search engines. The truth is that there are many aspects of the SEO optimization that are technical and those technical issues need to be addressed before a site can truly succeed.

The following SEO packages are usually offered by web agencies that are part of the web design and development process:

Economy Class

It comes with every website free of charge and includes basic things like:

  • Search Engine Friendly URLs
  • Image Alt tags optimization
  • Image size optimization
  • Some automation rules for meta description

Business Class

This is a good option when you need a strong SEO on your website. It includes all things from the Economy package plus

  • Keyword Optimisation
  • Titles, Headlines, and Meta tags optimization

First Class

This is when you need superior on-page SEO on your website. In addition to all included in Business Class package, you will also receive:

  • Competitors Analysis
  • Sitemap, Robots.txt
  • Internal linking
  • Rich snippet implementation
  • Schema markup addition

To build a website you will need both a domain name and web hosting account. You need web hosting to store your website's files and a domain name - the address of your website that people type in the browser’s URL bar to visit your website.

Web Hosting

Hosting is the fee that you pay monthly or annually for the space you occupy on the web. It can range from nothing at all to hundreds per month for managed hosting. There is a wide variety of mass-market companies, and you probably also have local options.

The average cost for web hosting: $4 - $50 a month

For simple websites, you shouldn’t need more than 1GB of space per year and 3-10 GB of bandwidth. As you begin to grow, you’ll want to expand your hosting, but unless you’re hosting large image files or streaming videos, that likely won’t be necessary soon. Nearly all web design firms will work with your existing hosting provider (if you have one), so don’t feel as though you’re required to switch every time you need a redesign.

Domain registration: $7 - $14 a year

Your annual domain registration fee renews your exclusive right to the use of your domain name. You can register a domain on your own or ask your web design firm to help you with the process.
