How much does a website cost?

Toronto’s WordPress Website Designers

Obviously at Creative Web Design 123 we get asked this question all the time. To answer this question is not as simple as you may think. We need to understand what your website needs to achieve. Websites today are more complex than previously and have become more a business tool rather than a brochure style website.

Websites vary in complexity and functionality and therefore in the time, effort and expertise required required to create them. We do not have per-page fees, and can only give an accurate estimate once we determine what you need … but your estimate will include only those services that you need.

Quick Answer

The only correct answer to that question is "it depends". Most of the projects we have worked on are less that $20,000. Some of them we have done for free. The best answer to this question is for you to tell us your budget, and we can help you achieve your dream within that budget.

To build a customised website today it is important not only to look good but to be written in a way so search engines can find your website when customers are searching for you. Google is still the number one search engine by far with approximately 88% market share. For a website development company to give you an idea of costs you will need to provide them with the information they need to understand what you expect your website to achieve.

Your web designer will need to know:

  • Who is your target demographic?
  • What are your main keywords and keyword phrases?
  • What is your industry? 
  • Who are your customers?
  • Where are your customers?
  • Why do they need your services or product?
  • What is your difference?
  • Who are your competitors?
  • Do you have a marketing strategy in place?
  • Are you a start-up?
  • How many years have you been in business?
  • Do you have a current website?
  • Do you have a budget in mind?
  • Do you need to register a domain name?
  • Do you have a design brief?
  • Do you have a sitemap?
  • How many pages?
  • How many products?
  • What would you like your website to achieve?
  • Do you want to capture your customer’s information?
  • Do you want to send email news letters?

The more information you can give your web designer the more accurate the quotation will be. Without this information your web designer will not be able to quote properly and you may end up with a website that doesn’t do what you expected therefore it will be useless to you.

You should also know:

  • Why am I doing a website in the first place?
  • How much content will there be on the website.
  • What about functional elements of the website eg.
    • Calendars / Schedules
    • Directories
    • Email list management and newsletters
    • Maps
    • E-commerce (online store)
  • Will I be able to modify the website content myself?

So the bottom line is, assess your needs first, then you can get a reasonable estimate on cost. You should be able to sit down with your web company and talk about your needs before you sign up.

But to give you a short answer: As much as you want to spend. $150 annually for domain and hosting, plus what you determine your budget to be for design and maintenance. A reasonable bottom line start-up budget for a website of 4 pages without a large body of work for a basic site is $500. Read also our Website Packages Specials.
