Every day, when I tell people that I am in the website development business, the first thing they ask me is how much would it cost them to make a website.

My answer is always the same… it depends on what you want on your website and the purpose of it, since there are many variables affecting the final price o the website cost. Is it for E-commerce? Or for informational purposes? How many pages do you need? Do you want it to be optimized for Search Engines?

The first thing you need to know about starting your brand-new website is that you need to have a domain and a hosting. Wondering what those are? A domain is the name of a website or URL, whereas the hosting is the platform or business that provides the technology needed for your website to be viewed on the internet.

A domain price can start at $3, and it can even reach prices as high as $20,000 depending on the quality of the domain.

On the other hand, a hosting can start at $60 per year for a single website.

Bellow, I will leave you a couple of pages where you can review the best hosting services and their prices.
