Our website packages start from £495 plus VAT for a simple build. An example of a simple build is a five-page brochure-style website (pages might include: home, about, packages, FAQ, contact – similar to the Connectable website). Additional costs are likely to include hosting (please see below for more information how hosting works), domain name purchase (unless already owned) and a monthly website management fee (if chosen as part of the package). As a rough guide, expect to pay £100 – £150 per page developed, dependent on the level of work involved (click here to see our packages).
Your website will be hosted via WordPress. WordPress hosting has a monthly fee and is dependent on the size of the website. As an example, the Connectable website could comfortably run on a £15 per month hosting package.
Simplified, hosting is the physical place where the information on your website is stored. Think of it as the high street shop that holds your stock. You own the stock but must pay a monthly rent to the landlord to be able to use the shop. The more information (or stock) you have, the larger the storage space you’ll need. The fee for WordPress hosting is charged monthly and depends on the size of the website. As an example, the Connectable website could comfortably run on a £15 per month hosting package.
If you haven’t already arranged your domain and email, we can provide that for you. The cost of the website domain name (typically £15 per year) will be added to your quote. We can also set up a custom email address at £4.95 (plus VAT) per month per user (e.g. [email protected]).
Ideally, you will supply your own images for the website. If you are unable to supply your own, you have several options. Option 1, we will use copyright-free stock images (chosen by you – we will recommend several websites to help you acquire the images). Option 2, we have several relationships with photographers who can help you. Option 3, images don’t have to be used for the website if you would prefer not to.
We offer bespoke monthly hosting packages and will take care of any visual changes required as a result of software updates. We will also make small amendments as required (e.g. addition of a new text paragraph on a page). If you require additional web pages at a later date, we will price it up and provide you with a quote. You will receive log-in details to your website where you are free to make content changes. We will sit with you and guide you through this process on delivery of the website.
Should you want to consider using Connectable to build your website, we will have a face-to-face meeting or conference call to understand more about you, your business and what you would like to achieve with the website. This is known as the discovery phase. We will then take you through a short process to design the theme and layout of the website. Once this has been completed, we will put together a quote for your consideration.
