My rate is $50 an hour for designing or redesigning web pages. I am able to keep my hourly rate low by having a home
office, keeping my overhead down, and no
employees. Most important, I work fast and smart.
A good rule of thumb would be between $250 and $450 for the Home Page.
(This page normally is the most expensive
since during the creation of the Home Page I also create the background for all pages, logos, the link buttons, and the overall look of the site.) Additional pages normally run around $125 each. Of course,
if, for instance, you are a real estate company and wish to list all your listings, that will increase the cost of those pages.
Approximately $1000 to $1200 would be a good ballpark estimate for most web sites. I will be able to give you a
better estimate once I understand your needs. I have been able to create web sites for as little as $200.
Besides my costs, there are two other costs when creating a web
There is the
cost of registering and
protecting your domain name (e.g.
websitedesignbysteve.com). There are many registrars, all doing the same thing. Mainly the only differences
are cost and ease of access.
The one I use
(GoDaddy) charges around $15 a year and is paid
directly to the
registrar. It is much like a DBA. They register your domain name and make sure no one else can use that domain name. I take care of getting this done for you.
The second cost is
to a Web Site Host
Server. This is the company that hosts your website so it can be seen on the
internet. We can use any Host you wish. However, I do have one I use that is extremely reasonable, gives great
service and has an extremely low down time. I am not connected with them in any way. Whatever Host you
choose, I take care of setting them up and uploading your site to them.
