How much does a bespoke website cost?

‘It depends’.

Without details of a specification, it is very difficult for me to give an exact price. However, the information below is a really good tool for getting an idea without chatting to me. If you’re still in the early stages and need an idea of costs, here is a simple guide of my web design and development prices with different levels of functionality:


A bespoke start-up website with up to 5 pages/sections.
It includes consultation, responsive UX design, SEO and development using either hand-coded HTML or WordPress with custom premium theme: from £800.


A bespoke medium-size website with more content and functionality. It includes consultation, project management, responsive UX design, SEO and development using either hand-coded HTML or WordPress with custom premium theme: from £1,400.

Add e-commerce

Additional e-commerce for your online sales to either a start-up or medium-size website: add from £500.

Your budget matters!

I will always try to find a way to help you within your budget. That doesn’t mean cutting corners, it simply means providing solutions in the shortest possible time that maximises your returns.

What about maintenance, support, content updates and producing other digital/print assets?

Once a project is completed, clients will often ask if they can retain my services on an ongoing basis. This can be anything from regular WordPress maintenance, backing up your website’s database and hosted files to regular content updates and be producing other digital/print assets.

Managing your website, emails, domain and web hosting, including a full backup, is free for the first month after launch. Thereafter from time to time, your website’s HTML, theme, plugins and WordPress version will require updating. Updates typically happen when security patches or extra functionality is released. It’s good practice to keep your website updated to the latest versions. The top two reasons for sites being hacked are insecure passwords and outdated, vulnerable software.

Maintaining your website and keeping a backup off-site start from as little as £5 a month. You may also want to update your website with content on a regular basis or require the production of additional digital/print assets.

I offer long-term, retainer-based support for all clients. Usually, this support is tailored to your requirements with an agreed budget and a minimum commitment of 3 months. If you prefer to receive support without undertaking a contract, my pay-as-you-go rate is £40/hour or £300/day.

You may wish to use a Debit/Credit Card to purchase a fixed-term support package. There are 2 bundles available to choose from:
