4) Time needed for development

For the development of a simple website, it usually takes one to two weeks, even though, for complex websites, development can extend to several months. The time required for site development directly influences its cost.

Other significant factors that impact website expenses and are vital to consider are:

  1. Quality of Design: Higher-quality design, including accurate coding and fewer errors, results in a higher website cost.

  2. Site Features & Maintenance: If you intend to have your site periodically monitored and updated by developers post-completion, this will involve additional expenses. As a general rule, within the first few months of site development, you cannot expect your website to work correctly, and the expenses also apply to it.

  3. Hosting & Domain Costs: The cost of the domain (usually around 30 USD annually) and hosting service fees (starting at 10 USD per month) are not included in the website's cost, and you will need to pay these separately. Be sure to calculate this into your overall budget.
