Website Basics FAQ’s

How much does a website cost?

For a simple website design, you can hire a freelancer starting around $1,500, whereas a small web design company will charge $3,000 to $10,000 and a large web design company will charge $16,000 and up (with at least a one year contract).

Website costs vary depending on the business’s needs and goals for the site. Some of the factors that determine the cost of your website are: the type of website you need (online store, educational platform, informational website, personal portfolio, etc), the website’s features (social media or newsletter integration, features for online payments or bookings, etc.), and the level of customization since websites that use generic templates and features tend to be less expensive.
