What else is included in a website cost?
Client needs to carefully peruse the details of each package as to what they offer and what all are included in the website cost which is published.
It would be great if you could work out in advance what all are included in your website cost and what all aren’t before you start with designing. There are cases where clients believe that something was part of the website designing process but then the designer doesn’t specify it in the beginning and later when you want it desperately you need to bear extra expenses to get it done. So avoid this hassle in the beginning stage itself.
Often in Australia certain software and technologies used for web design come with a license fee implying that you pay a premium for it, or your web developer needs to be remunerated more since they have to pay and buy an expensive license.
WordPress is open source software. In-house systems come with a license fee. This you don’t pay if site is constructed using WordPress. WordPress also works well with any system and afterwards if you want to make alterations to your website then you can take it to a web developer and get your changes done.
What is not included in a website cost?
The price of web hosting is separate. It is not included in website design cost. Hosting connects the website with the World Wide Web. The price for this in Australia ranges from $10 to $ 40 per month depending on the service provider. We aid our clients in understanding and going for the best available option. We also arrange for domain name registration which costs around $30 to $50 per year.
Stock photos and graphics costs won’t be included in website design as these needs to be purchased from different sources. Charges are applicable depending on where you buy them from.
Plug-ins and third party software also need to be purchased from different service providers / vendors. Although some of these add-ons can be availed for free, most of these you need to buy. If you are looking for a specific plug in or type of functionality then you need to shell out more money.
