What will a website cost?
The written quote I provide will give an accurate breakdown of what you will be paying. I have two fee scales, for commercial and for not-for-profit organisations. When we’ve established what you need, I will give you a ball-park estimate of final costs. Alternatively, you could give me a maximum budget figure, and I’ll let you know what can be done for that price.
Design and construction
This covers work on:
- site evaluation and planning
- graphic design
- registration of domain names
- set up of hosting accounts
- WordPress sites
- set up of ecommerce site (configuration, entry of catalogue items)
- HTML/XHTML/PHP/CSS coding
My rates are:
- Commercial sites $86 per hour
- Not-for-profit registered organisations $77 per hour
Follow-up maintenance and updates to sites that I have built, are charged at a lower rate.
I can register a domain name for you, or advise you how to do it. You’ll pay around $20 per year (not-for-profit domains such as .org are slightly cheaper).
What domain names should you buy? If you are targeting a global market, I’d advise a com or net domain. Otherwise, it’s more useful to identify your site as Australian by having a com.au or net.au or org.au.
Website size, traffic and any special requirements affect hosting costs. A basic site with no special functionality, and using your domain name with one email account, is $120 per year. If you need advice, I can recommend various web-hosting companies.
Prices are in Australian dollars.
