Cost Of A “Typical Website”

People have asked me all the times, “what is the cost of a typical website?”

Well, the typical answer is there’s no such thing as a typical website. Like cars, you can buy a brand new economical sedan for under $10,000 or a luxury one over $100,000. It all depends on your needs and wants and of course your budget.

However, here’s the ball-park again for your reference. If your website is a non-ecommerce site [with no shopping cart], doesn’t require a database to hold registered user information, and has about 3-8 pages, the cost would range from $400 – $2,000 or even more. [You still have to pay about $100-$150 every year for your domain and web hosting services]. Why the difference?

It all comes down to the time and skills involved in doing your site. If your site is simple, and you are very clear about what you want in terms of content and design layout, you’ll save me time, thus you’ll save yourself money. If you want a more complex website layout, more complex web graphics and functionality, or you want to have follow-up search engine services, you’ll have to pay more.
