How Much Does a Website Cost?
How much would it cost you if you hired someone to create a website for you?
- Website design – 3 webpages minimum = $600
- Images @ $40 per image = $200
- Web hosting paid anually = $200
- Total cost for a simple web site = $1000
If you need specialized applications like forum, content management system, shopping cart, blog and others, you will need programmers, web developers, designers and many more. That could easily cost you another $2000 and more to hire the right people.
If you can afford to throw away $1000 on an online business, that hasn’t proven it’s worth yet, by all means go ahead. Now the $900 is only the set up costs, you still have to consider the amount of money you will have to pay each time you want to update information on your web site or install interactive scripts.
