What should be the actual cost to build your website?
The real cost to build a website is a complete mystery to many of us at the very beginning. Would it be 10,000? 20,000? 50,000? Or heavens forbid, more??
The visual appeal or attractiveness of the website design can sometimes give it away, but it's not always the case. Here's the thing - It's really hard to judge how much a website cost just by looking at the design.
Consider this - It is indisputable that the Lamborghini Spyder is one hot car. Even so, what most Lambo enthusiasts love about this car is not how it looks, but how it sounds, it is the roar of the v10 engine that takes the Spyder from 0 to 60mph in just 3.4 seconds.
Just like the $250,000 Lambo, what makes up the cost of a website is not only how the website looks on the surface, but rather, what lies under the hood that makes a website work. So, don?t judge a website by its cover ? its design is only one slice of a much bigger pie. Whenever you are trying something new, having someone in your corner who has experience in the subject can really help. This is why the value of designers or developers goes beyond just the surface design of the website. Their experiences, technical skills, and broad product knowledge can help you?
Avoid hidden technical and financial pitfalls; and
Choose the right solution for your budget level, technical level, and how much time you are prepared to commit.
YOU ARE ASKING ALL THE WRONG QUESTIONS!
How much a website should cost is a very generic question ? it lacks specifics. It?s the same as if I were to ask you how much should a car cost? Uh? well, can you be more specific? What type of car do you want? ? Does it need to be gas efficient? ? What do you use it for? ? What is your budget? You can quickly see ?how much does a car cost?? is actually quite a pretty complex question after all. Just like budgeting for a car, the cost of a website is different to different people because everyone values the concept of ?cost? in different ways.
Domain name and Space
It also depends if you have finalised on the domain name and if you already have the hosting package to upload the website. We at Diptik provide these services as well so knowing about the client's needs and their current scenario becomes a must before we give a quote to them.
