If you need to develop a new website, you should educate yourself on the costs. Designing a website can be expensive if you use the wrong services, encounter errors, and you may need to redesign the website. There are many web development services online, so choosing the one that works for you will be easier with this comprehensive guide.

Development Costs

Some of the costs to develop a new website are:
  • Domain Name
  • Web Hosting Service
  • Website Design
Let’s discuss these in greater detail.

Domain Name

If you want to have your own official domain name, you will have to purchase it. Domain names come from domain hosting websites. Your domain name should be your business’s name or a variation of it. Potential customers will see your business and try to find it online, and if they don’t see your business name, they may not be able to find your website. Domain names can be purchased as a monthly, quarterly, or annual fee, depending on the domain hosting website you choose. If you aren’t careful, you could be paying upwards of $40 each year for your domain name. You should aim for $5 to $20 per year for your domain name.

Web Hosting Service

Web hosting services store all the data and content for your website. Websites like WordPress combine their domain name, web hosting, and design services into one package. Web hosting services also include algorithms that show users your website. Without a web hosting service, you may never see organic website traffic. Web hosting services cost anywhere from $5 to $40 per month.

Website Design

Website design is likely where you will spend the most money. While you could design the website yourself, it will take more time than you can afford. As a business owner, you have other tasks to complete. Designing a website doesn’t fit into your schedule. Luckily, there are many different web design businesses and freelancers that can design your website. However, finding the right designer can take a lot of time. You must ensure the designer you hire can deliver a website that is user-friendly, implements SEO methods, and contains relevant content. Costs of website design can range from $150 to $75,000. This is why research should be done ahead of time.

MacRAE's has been an amazing partner to Pathway Communications for its digital marketing efforts. There we worked with Sakshi who was our Account manager. We have nothing but great things to say for her! She is extremely thorough professional and responsive to any requests we may present. She has the required expertise and experience in the digital marketing space which helped us in getting the desired results. Her team has helped increase our organic sessions on our website with continual month over month increase. Our keyword rankings have increased and we have seen so much more traffic to our website. We cannot thank them enough for all of the hardwork and effort put in to making Pathway's digital presence felt.
