Website Design / Development Costs

How Much Should Your Website Cost 

Determining how much a website should cost is one of the most frequently asked but rarely answered questions in the web design world. Even now, with millions of websites online, there exists no magic formula for calculating either the cost of a new website or the cost of a redesign.

But why not? Questions about website design cost are common online, but very few people are prepared to answer, even when it comes to professional web design prices.

For this article, the Umbrella Consultants team of professional web designers, developers, and SEO specialists have worked together to examine some of the most important factors that go into a web design quote.

These include historical website development costs, as well as web design costs for different components. The data also includes current website features and design costs.

A website can cost anywhere from $500 to $15,000 so it can really be a challenge to nail down a specific professional website cost. That's why we made a website quote calculator that you can use to ballpark prices for websites you want to create.
