How much does a web site cost?
Web sites vary greatly in price depending on size/complexity. My rate is $95 per hour. Designing a site from concept to launch can run anywhere from $1,000 to $10,000 or more. Most projects I handle come in at less than $2,000. For an idea of what your site might cost, please look through my portfolio. If you see a site that is somewhat similar in size and function to the one you wish to build, I can give you a quick estimate. For a more in-depth consultation, let's get together in person or over the phone to talk about your options. After discussing the details of your project, I can give you an estimate and answer any additional questions. For an appointment, call 918.369.9478 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
How long does it take to build a web site?
This depends on the size of the project. I can have a small site up and running for you in a week or two, a medium-size site might take a month, and larger sites will take longer. You can speed up the process by having all your images and text ready for me. If you come to me with a realistic deadline and you have all the materials on hand, I will be glad to work within your time frame.
I live outside of your area. Can you still design my web site?
Yes! I live in Tulsa, OK, but I have worked with clients around the United States.
Can I maintain my own web site or will you maintain it for me?
Your web site belongs to you and its maintenance is your choice. I have helped many clients learn to make updates to their own sites. Most prefer to have me make these changes for them. I can edit your site based on my hourly rate of $95 in 15-minute increments with a minimum charge of $25.
What is web hosting?
A web site is made up of files like those you have on your desktop computer. To make your web site accessible to other people, the files that make up your site must be placed on a host computer that is connected to the Internet around the clock. This host computer is called a web server.
How much does web hosting cost?
Web hosting usually starts around $50 per month. Actual cost depends on your web site's size, use and how many visits it receives.
What is a domain name?
The jaradesigns.com part of my web address is an example of a domain name.
How do I get a domain name?
Your domain name will simply be a name of your choosing followed by .com, .net, .org or one of the other available extensions. However, since many domain names are already taken by others, we may have to get creative. The key is to find an available domain name that is easy for people to remember and spell. Then, we must register it at a cost of $15 per year. Once you have registered a domain name, it effectively belongs to you until you decide to stop paying the annual fee. Even if you're not quite ready to build your site, you can register and hold a domain name. This will reserve it for your use until you have built your site and are ready to launch it.
