What does it cost?
It costs a relatively small amount to get your business advertised on the
world wide web. It must be stressed that the following
is for guidance only:
Setting up a web-site for a small business with your own distictive domain
name costs about £85 for the first year. Most web hosting providers
also produce some statistics to tell you how much the site is visited;
they will also provide you with a number of flexible email accesses from
Hosting running costs from then on will be approximately £75 p.a.
Design costs are very variable, depending on the time and resources
required. However for a simple site of two or three pages they could be
as low as £250.
Thus to get your own small web-site up and running could cost you as
little as £350. It can, of course, be expanded later.
No site is cast in tablets of stone! You may wish to learn how to make
modifications to your new site, or simple changes can be made by S.H. Enterprises
at a cost depending upon the complexity of the change.
Having a web-site up and running is one thing, but getting it recognised
by major search-engines is essential. Again we can advise and handle this
If you use Adobe Contribute to
update the web-site after it has been designed and built for you, the cost
of this software which runs on your own computer is approximately £120
This web site has deliberately been made very simple - it consists of
only nine pages of information. Have a look at some of the sites in our design
portfolio to see what can be achieved: the examples given are widely different.
