How Much Does It Cost to Make a Website in 2017

Cost to build website: by types

There are dozens of types of websites on the web, from personal blogs and portfolios to extend businesses solutions. All of them are of different development complexity and that influences the total time required for their implementation and the average website cost respectively.
Being an experienced IT company, we have singled out 3 types of websites for the development of which we are hired most frequently.

Cost of business website

Generally, this type of websites is informational and intended to promote the brand and increase the loyalty of company's target audience. The cost of making a website of this type depends on its complexity.
Based on our experience we can say that customers who order a business website expect to see at least 6 pages there. In fact, the core menu items are About us, Services, and Contact us. However, such pages as Blog and Press are not demanded any less. Quite often our partners want to see on their company's website such features as membership, downloadable content, and sign up for newsletters.
To provide our customers with the product they ordered as soon as possible we use the combination of such technologies as Angular 2 and Node.js. The average cost of website development depends on the number of hours required to implement the project. So, the development time of a business website can range between 190 and 260 hours on average. Talking about price, it depends on company's per hour rate. You can check our infographic at the end of the article to get more details.

E-commerce website cost

The Internet has captured the world, so it is not surprising that even stores are migrating there in search of additional revenue and new opportunities. Since more and more of our customers are interested in e-commerce website development cost, we have singled it out as the second most popular type.
 
Among our customers, there are a lot of physical business owners who want to go online as well as website holders who want to reshape their services and start selling some goods there.
Actually, e-commerce is pretty similar to a business website when it comes to the basic set of features and pages. However, in e-commerce, there are a variety of specified elements and features that demand both a marketing strategy and a well-thought-out design. Of course, all of them influence the cost of developing an e-commerce website.
Again, for e-commerce development, we use Angular 2, Node.js and Shopify in some cases. On average, the development time of e-commerce platforms takes from 350 to 750 hours. As in the previous type, the cost of an e-commerce website depends on company's rate per hour.

Landing page cost

A landing page is a website that has one single page. As a rule, such websites are not overloaded with content in order not to divert users' attention from the main goal of the website - motivation to certain action. There are a variety of cases of landing page applications, from purchasing something to downloading a file.
Despite the fact this single page can be really long, the average cost to build a website of this type is much lesser if compared to previous ones. That's because its development and design go much faster. So, when it comes to landing page development we prefer using Bootstrap along with pure HTML and that takes us from 20 to 40 hours on average. The time can vary depending on the animation complexity, the same as the final cost of a website.
