The short answer is that it depends on your requirements.
Blog / Information-only sites are the cheapest to set up, and have the lowest requirements for ongoing maintenance and hosting.
More complex sites with additional functionality such as e-commerce or membership based sites take longer to build, need more complex ongoing management, and need better hosting to operate properly.
The complexity of the website design also plays a factor - there are 2 types of design - individual pages, and templated design - the number of designs required to build your website will increase the cost.
Lastly, the number of pages which need content uploaded will also impact the cost of your website. For example: a 5-10 page 'static info/brochure site' will be much cheaper than a site with multiple inventory items, or large numbers of blog pages.
There are 5 main cost elements to consider:
- Domain (recurring charge)
- Hosting (recurring charge)
- Set-up (one-time cost)
- Maintenance (recurring charge)
- Design / Function updates (as required)
There are also a number of secondary costs: (these can have both an initial cost and ongong charges)
- SEO (where your website appears in search engine results)
- Optimisation (how fast your website loads)
These costs are not specific to me, or any particular platform. When considering costs, you should budget for all of these.
Each site is unique and as such, will have a specific cost.
