How much should you budget?

The price of your project will depend on a number of factors:

The size of your project - i.e., number of pages

The style of your project - a complex fully featured design, will take longer to build than a simple design

How much of the website you want to be able to edit - editing just text, and static images will take less time to build than creating a full CMS functionality for galleries, video, and blog!

* for these features, there may be additional costs depending on the size and complexity of the project. I will go over these details with you.

** this is a basic setup cost. When I have more details, I will be able to give you a more exact price.

*** may be more or less depending on the size of existing website.

Other costs to consider

DOMAIN NAME If you haven't already got one, you will need to purchase a Domain Name (approx £7.99 + VAT a year if .co.uk). I will go through this with you.

HOSTING
Once I have built your website it will need to be hosted on the internet. I provide a Managed Hosting Service which is payable monthly or annually. When a website is published, there are on-going maintenance and security updates. Rather than paying me by the hour to do this work, it is built into your hosting fee.

Read more about Domains and Hosting on my FAQ.

The estimators should be used as a guide only, the actual price of your website may be different depending on your requirements.

Once we have had a chance to talk about your project, everything will fall into place.

I will, where I can, give you a fixed quote, based on an initial agreement of style and content.

If halfway through the project, you have a change of heart and want to make changes that significantly alter the original agreed design, then I am happy to give you a quote for the extra work. This allows for creativity and flexibility while honouring any additional time involved.

Timescales


Again, this is just a guide!

A simple 5-page website with basic CMS (text and image editing) would take approximately 35 hours (5 days) to build, with me working on your project full-time.

A 5 - 10-page website with more advanced CMS editing capability (i.e photo galleries, blog and/or video) would take longer to build. It's almost impossible to say, as it will vary from project to project. A very rough guide would be 50 - 70+ hours, with me working on your project full-time
