How much does a website cost?

The cost of a website will depend on specific requirements. An approximate estimate for a website can be anywhere between $1000 and $10,000 or sometimes even more, depending on your specific needs.

The type of customisation (features, design, etc.) needed for the website determines the technical skills, time and cost, for the project. However; costs associated with a website have reduced considerably over the years. The cost of developing a basic website is much lesser today.

Different web design and development agencies have different cost-calculating methods. From hourly rates to monthly and yearly packages, you can choose a service that best fits your business needs.

Here are some factors that web design agencies consider when determining a website’s cost:

Type of Website

A website can be customised or template-based. If you are looking for a completely customised website, the process costs more than a pre-available template-based design.

Single or Multi-Page

A single page website is useful if you want your visitors to “land” on a specific webpage after clicking your link on search engines, emails or other channels. Visitors take a specific action, such as getting in touch with you, subscribing to a service, buying a product, or other, after landing on the page.

A multi-page website, on the other hand, can range from a simple brochure website to build-from-scratch websites with medium to advanced brand-oriented features such as:

  • Graphics and animation
  • Rich images
  • Comprehensive website sections such as homepage, About Us, Products/ Services, Media, Testimonials, Contact Us and Blog, among others.
  • Multiple sub-pages – for example, team members and their complete bios in About Us section
  • Login facility
  • Store locators
  • Content-download feature

Cost of such websites, depending on the features, can range from $5000 to $40,000.

Point to Note: The cost depends on the amount of work involved. If you are able to provide content such as images, text or other elements, you can witness considerable cost reduction. For example, you can get a brochure website for $1000 or less if you are able to provide the content.

E-commerce Websites

A basic e-commerce website for a small inventory starts from approximately $10,000. E-commerce software solutions such as WooCommerce and Shopify are great for such purposes. You get a wide range of functionalities at affordable costs.

A completely customised e-commerce solution can cost $40,000 or much more, depending on the degree of customisation you want to integrate.
