Cost Variables

The procedure of creating your website will be the most expensive part. Variables affecting overall production cost include:

  • Design complexity
  • Number of pages
  • Content
  • Optimised for tablets & mobile
  • Type of interactive features (for example, a shopping basket)

Important Considerations

  1. Web design is a service, not a product. Looking at your website build as a service will help you understand why it is difficult to put a single price to it.
  2. There is a lot of planning and detail involved. Price will depend on the level of detail and time spent on various features.
  3. Without a domain name and hosting a website can not be live on the internet
