Website Cost Estimate

Domain Name

Your domain name is important because it creates an online identity for your website. Having a domain name establishes credibility with site visitors and potential customers while helping you further grow your brand. It is also important because if you ever change your hosting, your domain name will go with you. Lastly, your domain name is important because it expands your opportunities for online advertising, which has become necessary for attracting traffic to today’s websites. 

Cost: $5 to $25 per year

Web Hosting

Hosting is simply the service that allows your website to be accessed by other Internet users. A web host will provide space on its server for your website, allowing people around the world to view it.

Hosting is important because the quality of your host can affect page loading time, the tech support you receive if your site crashes, and the ability of your website to expand in the future. To put it simply, your hosting provider has a huge impact on how your website functions. Although free hosting services exist, their tech support (if they supply any at all) will not be as good as paid hosting services. 

Cost: $75 to $200 a year (depending on traffic and hosting features)

Content Management

A CMS will allow you or your employees to edit information on your website without having to edit any of the code or mess with any of the files you already have in place. A CMS makes it extremely easy for you to adjust the little things here and there just in case you need to add something later or if you want full control of what is shown on your website.

A CMS like WordPress may be free, while others may have monthly or yearly licensing fees or usage charges associated with them. What you choose depends on what specific functionality you need your website to have. Choosing a free option may limit you, but it'll also help save on web page prices.

Cost: $0 to $5,000+ per year (depending on the platform chosen)

Ecommerce/Online Stores

The addition of ecommerce functionality requires extensive testing of shopping carts, payment options, and shipping systems, as well as the time spent setting up products and ensuring their individual pages display correctly to shoppers.

Typically, there is no extra cost to add ecommerce functionality. The expense comes from the amount of time it takes to ensure every component is working, the acquisition of a payment gateway, and any additional effort you may require to integrate your store with shipping or tracking systems hosted elsewhere. While it may only require a single payment on your part, ecommerce inclusion can have a big effect on the cost of a website.

Cost: $500 to $5,000 (initial investment)

Layout Design

Design can go from a zero budget all the way to world-class quality, meaning the fees for website design can heavily impact web page price. Obviously, a zero budget style of design will not look as good, and a world-class design will certainly be eye-catching and perhaps even award-winning. It all depends on what you would like your website to look like and the desires of your target audience.

For some CMS, like WordPress, creating a website design is as simple as creating a theme or "skin" to apply to your site. This may cost far less than a created-from-scratch design, but it may also look less unique and lack some functionality. Website designing costs will be higher for the unique, from-scratch sites, but they'll also distinctly reflect you and your business.

Cost: $250 to $5,000+ (initial investment)

Copywriting

Copywriting ties into search engine optimization (SEO): The content on your website needs to contain the keywords relevant to your products or services, because if it doesn't, your site won't be found in search for those terms. It takes a trained writer with knowledge of SEO to create copy that contains the right keywords and compels your visitors to take action.

The more pages it will have, the more copywriting it will need, making copywriting an unexpected factor to website creation cost for many first-time webmasters.

Cost: $50 to $150 per page or article

Marketing & SEO

To attract the most visitors as possible, you must fully optimize your website for search engines. SEO services can range from very inexpensive to thousands of dollars per month, depending on how much work you want an agency to put into the ranking and visibility of your new site. After it's designed and developed, make sure you include SEO in your costs of a website to make sure your estimate is as accurate as possible.

SEO services typically include multiple ongoing methods and tactics. For example, Our SEO packages include optimization of website copy, keyword research, targeted outreach, link building, content creation, and more. The money you invested in your professional web design cost won't mean much if visitors can't find your site, and SEO is critical to making your site visible.

Cost: $300 to $1,500 per month

Website Maintenance

Website maintenance is the entire process involved in updating and managing a website once it is online. This includes ensuring that your website’s hardware and software are working well and that your site is up to date with the latest products and features.

Site maintenance is important because it affects how interested your visitors are in your site, it allows you to maintain your search engine rankings, and it essentially keeps your website functioning. You need to be willing to spend the money to maintain your website after it launches, or else your site will likely fall into disarray and lose any chance of ranking on search engine results pages.

Cost: $500 to $1250 a year (depending on number of updates required)
