Average costs of Building a website
Each website project is different. Continue reading to understand why certain projects cost more than others.
The cost of building a website can vary greatly depending on what your needs and goals are. Do you want an eCommerce website? Or are you looking to have a few web pages and a contact form so your customers can get in touch with you? Maybe you need to build a custom site with complex functions. Or you could be like most people who already have a website and want to update it or launch a new one quickly (if this is the case, skip to the bottom of the page). There are many variables that can raise or reduce the cost of building a website and we are going to review them here.
To make a long story short, the typical price range to hire a web developer to design and build a custom small-business website today is $2,750 to $30,000. Yes, you can pay less and in some instances more, especially if your project is complex. Additionally, this estimate does not include ongoing costs like hosting, which can range from $5 per month to $100. If you have an eCommerce, this can tack on another $200 per month. Let's say you need a webmaster to keep your website secure, running, and up-to-date; this can cost $50 to $150 per month.
We will break down the different project types and give you a general idea of what these projects will cost and the average timeline. These are estimates and do not constitute a cost estimate for your individual project.
Cost to Build an eCommerce Website
An eCommerce website requires hundreds of design hours, testing, security features, SSL certificates, landing pages, and ongoing support. Most have ongoing costs depending on what platform you choose. For instance, companies like Magento or Shopify can charge up to $20,000 per year just for using their eCommerce services. Companies like WooCommerce are less expensive but can still add around $100 per month on the high end.
The cost to develop an eCommerce website is typically $20,000 to $40,000. This depends on the complexity of your project. For instance, some eCommerce stores need a customer support area, question and answer forums, login for users, or drop shipping. The list goes on.
Timeline Estimates: 4 to 6 months
COST TO BUILD A Custom Web Design Project
The cost to develop a custom website can vary greatly. Most people don't really need a custom built website, especially with the inexpensive templates available on marketplaces like ThemeForest that can cost less than $100. However, if you have a very specific vision, then a custom built website may be right for you. For instance, if you need forums, user login, or other functions then you can expect to pay around $3,850 to $8,000 for a custom built website. However, the more complex your project becomes, the higher the cost can be. In some cases, costs can be as high as $15,000.
Timeline Estimate: 2 to 3 months
COST TO BUILD A Semi-Custom Websites
Now, we call these website "semi-custom" because they are not built from the ground up with a months long design and discovery phase. Generally a WordPress template is purchased form a marketplace like ThemeForest or a Squarespace CMS is used. The features most small businesses or individuals need to create a compelling site are included with these templates. The cost to develop a semi-custom website is generally $2,750 to $5,000.
