So what’s the bottom line? I charge between $850 and $1,200 for most of the small websites I build, depending on the number of pages on the site, the degree of customization required in the design, and any special features required. Larger and more complex sites cost more. A very simple blog would cost less.

Estimates are free, and we’ll agree on a price before work begins.

My fee doesn’t include the cost of registering your domain, which is usually $10 to $20 per year, or hosting your site, which usually costs $6 to $15 a month. I can set those things up for you, but you’ll pay the domain registrar and commercial Web host directly.

If you want to maintain and update your own site, I’ll teach you how. If you want my help with that, I’ll provide it at an hourly rate. I’ll also provide consulting services at an hourly rate if you want my help while you build your own site.

I’m determined to ensure that my clients get the websites they want and need. I can provide references on request.
