How much does a website cost for a small business?
Most of the costs you have to think about when starting your business are pretty straightforward.
Office space, insurance, staplers, paper clips, etc.
But when it comes to one of the most important tools a business can have, the price tag gets blurry.
Yes, I’m talking about a website.
It is no doubt a website has become one of the most significant parts of a business.
But… How much will it cost to make it?
Name it? Host it? Maintain it? Many don’t even know it, but it’s like a living organism that needs to be taken care of.
Let’s talk about how to do that and how much can it cost.
For your website to exist, you need to name it. A domain name is an address where Internet users can access your website.
You need a catchy yet easy one for your customers to remember it.
Registering a domain name can cost from 10€ up to 50€ per year.
Everything needs ‘a place to be‘. Even your website.
A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web.
The „home“ of your website can cost you from 30€ to 600€ per year.
An SSL certificate is a type of digital certificate that provides authentication for a website and enables an encrypted connection.
It is not mandatory, but very much recommended for security reasons.
This alone can cost up to 200€ per year.
Last but not least, comes the design of your website.
Here you have two options. Option no.1: have a professional do it for you.
No doubt here you will have a custom made, eye-catching, stylish, and probably very expensive website.
This one of a kind masterpiece can cost you about 5000€ and maybe more, depending on the web design guru you choose.
Option no.2: do it yourself. You will save a lot of money, for sure. But the downside here is you might not have the skills and the time to make your website look how you want it to look.
