Website design and hosting pricesHow much would a website cost?
The cost of producing a website will vary depending upon your individual requirements. However, I aim to provide affordable web design to even those with a modest budget.
All the websites I build include a content management system. Prices start from £275.
You can add many options to these websites, such as photo galleries, forums, and much more. A full e-commerce site costs from £450.
- A brochure website is a content managed website that simply displays what you offer. It would usually consist of a home page, about page, our services page, contact page and maybe a blog page.
- Sometimes you want more from your website, such as a gallery, an events page, a portfolio.
- If you would like to start selling online, then an e-commerce website is what you need. Usually with payment via PayPal, although other merchants are possible.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does will it take to build my website?
That depends very much on your requirements. I find it also makes a big difference how prepared you are with the content for your website, such as text, images and what pages you need.
A rough estimate is 4 to 8 weeks. Simple websites can take even less, but more complex websites with e-commerce and other facilities can take longer than this.
