How Much Does a Website Cost?

Without knowing your web design requirements, there is no accurate answer, even on a per page basis. Graphic-intensive pages, or those with e-commerce, slideshows, animations, or other special features may take several hours of work. Pages that are primarily text may only take a few minutes to develop. Costs for web sites fall into the following categories:

  • Site planning and design ( we've built small sites for as little as Rs.10,000 for qualified non-profits )
  • Fixed annual costs such as hosting and domain registration (varies, but if you use Milleniance.com, hosting averages Rs.1500 per year, domain names less than Rs.700 per year)
  • Search engine and directory registration and marketing (the cost varies greatly depending on the nature of the site and type of registration and marketing)
  • Maintenance and updates (probably less than you think for text updates; higher costs for e-commerce or special graphic features) The cost of building and maintaining a website can also be effected by how you provide the content. You can save money by providing electronic text or Word documents for written content, and JPGs, TIFs, or EPS files for graphics. Milleniance.com has provided some representative samples and price ranges below. We've build sites for as little as Rs.10,000 (special pricing for recognized non-profit organizations); other sites may run several thousands.

Our prices are lower than many other prices you have seen, and our offered features/quality are better than most other companies.

Is the number of pages, I want to have on my site, directly proportional to the web space?

What is a payment-processing gateway?

PPG is basically a system of financial transaction on the Internet. It involves the merchant's acquiring bank (the owner of the shopping mall), the customer (who is using his credit card), and the payment gateway infra structure provider. As soon as the customer punches his credit card details on the secured page of the merchant' s virtual shopping mall , it is authenticated by the issuing bank and then accepted by the acquiring bank. Now the customer is entitled for the delivery of the selected item. Once the proof of delivery is presented to the acquiring bank the amount is transferred into the merchant's account.
