Below are details of Domain, Hosting & a brief of other elements that add to the cost of creating a website.

Website Domain

A domain name is a unique name that identifies a website. There are many different types of domain extensions you can choose for your domain name. This depends on your business nature. Below is a reference of the correct usage of certain extensions. But there is no hard and fast rule to go for any extension.

  • .com - Stands for company/commercial, but it can be used for any web site.
  • .net - Stands for network and is usually used for a network of sites.
  • .org - Stands for organization and is supposed to be for non-profit bodies.
  • .us, .in - They are based on your country names so that you can go for country specific domain extensions.
  • .biz - A newer extension on the Internet and can be used to indicate that this site is purely related to business.
  • .info - Stands for information. This domain name extension can be very useful, and as a new comer it's doing well.
  • .tv - Stands for Television and are more appropriate for TV channel sites.

The costs of domain may vary depending on the extension. Some hosting service providers provide free domain when you purchase hosting services.

 

Its advisable to book domain name and hosting with the same service provider. This makes it easy to manage the website. Do not go only on the basis of cheap pricing, discuss with website designer before you make a decesion.


Website Hosting Company

Other than the domain you will need to select a host. This is a service provider who will keep your website content, on their server, that is connected using hi-speed connections to internet, that will be accessable world over from internet 24hrs/7days. Here are few things you need to look when selecting a host -

 

a. Amount of space in terms of MB OR GB and price offered.

b. No of email accounts

c. Control panel - This will let you set different parameters for managing your hosting site, such as File manager - To view all your files on host, FTP (Required for transfering files to server), Website Backup programs, Install applications (such as wordpress).

d. Amount of databases - This is required if you want to setup wordpress site or if your web site requires databases to store & retrive information. The more the databases the more it will cost.

e. Check review of the hosting service provider on net or with your web designer. Some cheap hosting services may provide slower access to your website, may not have good support system, their down time may be more than acceptable etc.


Here is a list of few popular web hosting companies, but this is in no way a comprehensive list.

Copywriting For Search Engine Optimization

The cost of professional copywriting needs to be considered as well. But if you think you are good at it, you can write and send us the copy. We suggest you go through articles on net about website copywriting as its in someway different than writing a copy for a brochure. Here are few quick tips to get you started -

The internet is a jungle, majority of Internet users only scan websites in their quest to find useful information as quick as possible. A good general rule of thumb is that the word count for websites should be half that of traditional writing. Flowery language and complex sentences have no place on the web.

Organization is just as important. Break your text into chunks that are easily digestible for readers who are glancing through your page. Divide these chunks up with clear subheads that tell the reader what the next paragraph is about. 

Keyword stuffing is no longer necessary, but SEO (Search Engine Optimization) literacy is just as important as ever. Consider the keywords most relevant to your page, and think of ways to include them in the title and body of your article. Today’s web copywriter will use applications such as Google’s Keyword Tool to add a scientific dimension to their intuition.


Designing Of Home Page & Inside Pages

One of the most important page in a website is home page design. A captivating web design backed with solid functionality can be your most important business tool. Developing a home page design that establishes your brand while speaking to your target audience is an important task. We use web layout guidelines to create the layout of the pages and once the design is accepted, we codify it using HTML, CSS....the language that browsers understand.

Once the home page is designed, inside pages follow similar look and feel.

The appeal of the internet is its ability to mix different forms of information on a page. We balance the use of photos, graphics, animations, videos to grab readers’ attentions. Many times we may need to purchase stock photos / media to augment the content of the site.

Programming

The requirement of programming will depend on type of website. A simple website requires programming that relates to checking if all the fields in the contact forms have been filled and information sanitized before the submit button sends the data.

At times its necessary to purchase plugins to augment the functionality of websites, Such as photo gallery with content management system.

Something like a WordPress custom design template requires extensive programming in languages such as PHP, use of database etc.

A e-commerce website requires not only custom programming, critical management of database but the website programmer will need to consider security issues.


Thus as you can see its very necessary to communicate and tell us your requirement so that we can give you an optimized quote. While there are some things that should not be compromised such as a good web host, there are places where you can try to save, such as write your own copy for the pages, using your own photos, multimedia content etc.
