Like a business, websites are also not same. They are all created for different purposes, technology; therefore they vary in greatly in cost by the level of designing, functionality, complexity in development. Some companies offer for an hourly work price, overall costs include hour and overhead.Website prices can start as low as £100 for a bespoke web page and can go up and beyond £15,000.
Don’t just go into a website design project not knowing how much you want to spend because you will either end up being priced out and not having one at all or worse still a poor one that doesn’t do what you require.There are several items associated with creating a website which cost money.
First, you require a Domain Name.
You will purchase that at the cost of between $10 and $20 from a Registrar The buyer will be offered numerous extras to go with the domain name, but when starting out keep things as simple as possible, so don’t bother with them at present.
Hosting of the Domain Name.
This can be purchased from the Registrar or a separate site and will cost about $10 per year. You can pay more, but you do not need to do so.
This software, which converts your web pages to computer language, can be expensive for the models with many refinements included in their design. However, web editors, such as Kompoza, which is capable of very good results are available on the internet and can be downloaded free.
There are hundreds of sites on the web offering expert services for web design and many of these charge substantial amounts for their services. Again there is an alternative for the beginner which even advanced marketers frequently use. The option is website templates, which can vary in cost from modest to expensive. There is also a wide choice of free templates available on the internet.
Content for the website.
Content is a vital part of your website. It should provide information which is of value to your visitors, and it needs to be updated on a regular basis. Here there is a choice: write the content yourself or employ a ghostwriter. Each one has a cost. Writing the content yourself has a cost in time; a ghostwriter will cost from $4 to $30 per article.
For advanced websites, there can be further costs, but for most internet marketers there is no pressing need to spend a large amount of money to create a website. The only essential costs are for the Domain Name and Hosting. Some good membership sites which focus on affiliate marketing provide free hosting. So creating a website need not be a costly exercise if you can do a certain amount of work yourself and have the time available. You could create your website for a little over $20.
When considering having a website built the one issue is always cost. You must be realistic with your website budget and set yourself a target. Your budget must be built up on what type of website design you need, your projected turnover from it and the percentage of profit on return. It is very much the same as when you are setting up a business and require things like premises, everything has to be factored in.
