Custom WordPress Design

Design Costs

Your final cost will depend on:

  • number of different page designs used in the website (e.g., home page, content pages, blog).
  • complexity of design both in terms of layout and graphics.
  • number of pages you want us to fill with content.
  • additional features desired such as:
    • interactive events calendar
    • scrolling image slideshow
    • professional survey form
    • custom programming
    • importing blog posts from another site or blog

Our custom sites range from $500 to $5,000, so please contact us so we can give you a quote. We give discounts to non-profit organizations and sole-proprietors.

All of our websites are written in HTML5 (today’s standard), are fully responsive for ease of viewing and use on tablets and smart phones, and include:

  • custom-designed header
  • social media integration
  • contact form page
  • blog (if desired)
  • security plugins
  • typed instructions on how to work with WordPress
  • free email support
  • assistance with WordPress updates

Instruction by telephone is available as well.

Website Maintenance

Because the sites we design are in WordPress, you will be responsible for maintaining your site yourself. You can also pay us to handle complicated updates at $30 per hour for regular content updates and $50 per hour for programming updates. We do not require maintenance contracts, but we do recommend you “save up” a few updates as we bill in full hours.

If you wish to add additional features to your website at a later date, the cost is $30-$50 an hour depending on the complexity of the work required. For non-profits and sole proprietors, the cost is typically negligible.

Web Hosting and Domain Registration

We are a website design company and do not host websites or provide domains. Nonetheless, we can guide you through the process of obtaining an affordable web host where you can register your domain name and set up a hosting account. We do not require that you use any specific web host, although we have found both Bluehost and GoDaddy to be easy to work with for both hosting and domain management.
