There are three different ways to build a website that affect the cost differently. The first is to hire a web design agency. This involves working closely with the website designer to ensure the site meets your specific needs and expectations. Depending on whether you need a simple site, a complex site, or an eCommerce website with several additional functionalities’ average web development costs between $5,000 and $50,000. Avoid cheap solutions because you’ll likely end up spending more money to fix a low-quality website.
The second option is to use a website builder. Typically, a new site created with a website builder will cost between $5 and $50 per month. Free options are not recommended for business due to the inclusion of adverts on your site, non-custom domains, limited features, no eCommerce functionality, and minimal customer/technical support.
The third option is WordPress. It’s a content management system (CMS website) and website builder that can be used to create a new website blog, small business website, or eCommerce website. This is a great option for anyone with little technical expertise and those who want fully customizable lower-cost website design. You have full control over features, functionality, and design. Initially, it’s free, however, consider the costs of premium themes, paid plugins and hosting. Hiring a WordPress developer to take care of the complicated aspects of developing a website with WordPress will increases costs even further.
