How much does a web site cost?
Cost varies enormously depending on the amount of content and the functions of a site. A basic information site with half a dozen pages, 12 months hosting and domain name registration can be as little as $1,200. An ecommerce site with many products, shopping cart and payment gateway can be over $4,000. Therefore each job is priced individually. We email you a quote that sets it all out and gives terms and conditions.
What are the ongoing website costs?
You need to budget about $300 + GST for ongoing costs per annum. This is for domain name renewal and hosting. It excludes any upgrades, maintenance and edits. Domain names are licensed and require annual renewal, much like company registration. Hosting is a space rental cost.
Will I have to pay for support phone calls?
We reserve the right to charge for some types of support phone calls. eg. You request PC support or hardware purchasing advice. You require extra training in the CMS.
How long does it take to make a web site?
That very much depends on you. If you are well organised and have all your inputs – text, pictures, logo – to us at one time at the beginning of the project then we will only need 5-10 working days to deliver your web site. If you drip feed your inputs, it will take as long as you take to get those to us.
Will I be able to change/edit my web site?
Yes, most definitely. You will have the world’s most installed and generally awesome software to mange your site. Additionally we price in training into each quote for a new website so you are not left to fend for yourself.
I’d rather you changed my web site, is that service available?
Absolutely. Priced at $65+GST per hour. We need 3 working days to turn around edits to your web site.
I don’t have a business logo, is that a problem?
No, not a problem, we can prepare that for you. And business cards and brochures.
I don’t have website photography, is that a problem?
No problem, see our photography page for details. Photography is generally quoted separately and is done in-house.
Do I own the web site?
You own what you supply – pictures and text. We own what we supply – custom design. The web site is run on open-source software (WordPress), so neither you or us own that. However, should you wish to move to another supplier, and provided you have no amounts outstanding, we will facilitate the move.
