How Much Does a Website Cost?

Building a website is like constructing a house. You can build a large villa with a pool or a prefab cabin in a field. Depending on the complexity, size, and functionalities of the project, both the price and the timeline can vary significantly.

The most affordable websites we’ve seen cost between £300-£500 and take 3 to 5 working days to complete. Quick and affordable websites are usually made using no-code tools like Wix or Squarespace. Nowadays, there are also many AI tools available that can easily create an instant website without any programming knowledge. With these tools, you can choose a design template you like and simply add your images, texts, and domain. Domain, hosting, and maintenance for such a website will cost you around £150 per year if you do everything yourself.

We’ve also seen larger projects that took 4-6 months and cost around £30,000 to create a high-quality website. In such cases, a whole team of specialists works on developing your custom-made, original website, and detailed UX testing is conducted to achieve maximum conversions.

So, when you ask someone how much it costs to build a website, it's almost impossible to give a good estimate without first communicating all the details about how you envision that website.

It's much easier to state the approximate budget you can allocate for the project so that the agency can suggest the best solution you can get within that budget.

Create Website - Dictionary for Beginners


Domain - The address of your website (URL). It’s what you see at the top of the browser when you open a page, for example, This address allows people to find your website on Google. If we compare this to building a house, it's literally the address. Start with checking on if the domain you want is available.

Hosting - The online space where your website will be created and stored. This would be the land for building your house if we would compare it with construction. You can check different providers for hosting here

Web Design - The appearance of your website, including which font will be used, whether the image space will be on the left or right, colors, the look of the call-to-action button, and the size of the header. It’s best to find a template or example of a website you like online so you can show someone roughly what you want. The appearance of the website is also referred to as the frontend by web development agencies. If you decide to build your website in Squarespace, Wix, or Wordpress, check pre-made design templates there

Content - The text and images about you and your services that you want to have on your website. We advise you to provide personal input for text that should be on your website. We want it to be authentic!

Code - Also known as the backend, but since we mainly deal with no-code websites, we’ll leave this explanation to someone else.

What is Included in Web Creation?

When you book an agency or a freelancer to create a website for you, it's clear that as a beginner, when you pay someone to design your website, you expect to end up with a finished website.

But be careful, it's important to define before the project whether you only need the visual design of the website, or if you also need someone to write the texts, choose the images, purchase the domain, purchase the hosting, and put it all together. If you want one person or one agency to do everything, then ask them these questions:

Can you help me purchase a domain?

Can you help me purchase hosting, or offer hosting to me?

Will you create a personalized design for my website or offer me ready-made templates?

Will you write the texts for my website and choose the images, or will I need to do that?

Will you upload my texts and images to the website?

Will you connect my domain, hosting, and publish the website?

Where to Start?

1. Choose a name (domain) for your website 2. Find a template or example of design that you like

3. Start preparing your best photos, and bulletpoints for text that you envision on your website

If your budget is unlimited, send inquiries to sevel web development agencies. If you would like to be more thrifty with your first website creation, do it yourself in Wix or Squarespace, or get a virtual assistant to help you out. With support of VA - you can quickly launch for website, and initial investment would probably be around 500-700 GBP.
