There is no limit to how much money you can make from building websites on your own. There are a number of factors that go into creating a website and an equally big number of things that you can charge a handsome amount for, from your customers. Let’s discuss in detail the different things that determine the cost of building a website.

The design, layout, and the actual coding of the website take a substantial amount of time. This is the part of the website development process that you can charge a substantial amount for. You can charge your customers an hourly amount anywhere between $15 to $75 depending on your experience and the complexity of the website you are creating. If, however, you plan to charge a flat rate, you can ask for anywhere between $1,000 and $3,000 if you are working independently as a freelancer and if you are operating as an agency you can charge anything between $10,000 and $15,000.

There is one more way to quote a price to your customers which is a monthly fee. In this manner you can quote a price according to the services expected of you. Services that you can include in your offerings include:

  • Website design and development – this part we have already talked about. It includes the core programming and functionality of the website, its user experience, navigation, and general layout of the website. 

  • Hosting

Website hosting can be done through a hosting service provider or you can self-host all your clients’ websites.

  • Domain name

This is an ongoing expense where you will be charging the client a yearly fee for hosting their website on the domain name of their choice.

  • Site maintenance

Taking your website live is not a one and done deal. It is important to plan scheduled maintenances so that the performance of the websites is always awesome. Apart from scheduled maintenances, it is important to keep a vigilant eye so that you can nip any problem in the bud

  • Release updates

There are new devices launched all the time, the browsers are updated too from time to time, and of course the audiences do not want to use a website that looks outdated. This is why websites would need to be updated from time to time, even redesigned to match the changing trends.
