How much should a website cost?
By Deon Douglas



This is possibly the most discussed part of the web development process. Don't believe me? Do a quick google search for "How Much Does A Website Cost?"....See?

Of all the answers found online for the cost of a website, we found some that were ideal. We used a lot those ideas to create this article.

So, what is the cost of a website? Consider this answer to the "It costs as much as a car"

Naturally, the cost of car depends on the make, model, size, color, luxury features and on and on and on. See, building a website is not as cut and dry as some may believe, there is quite a bit to consider and plan for. The budget for a website is influenced by many factors.

* Visual Design - The look and feel requirements of the site
* Website Size- The total amount of pages will the site contain
* Project Scope- The type of information will live on the site pages
* Special Functionality- Development of any unusual services that the site will provide
* Site Traffic Volume- The anticipate volume of visitors is the site expected to handle
* Custom Business Logic- The need for programming special new features specifically for the website
* Development Timetable- The website's expected production time
* Integration Will the site need to connect to any other pieces of software?
* Experience of the Development Team

These are just a few of the major factors that determine the cost of a website. Now there are free websites available all over the web. But consider your own online activity, how long does it take you to determine if a website is a template versus a custom design? Who do you trust to do business with when looking at a site design?
