website design

Initial design and build

From £700

There are no 'off-the-peg solutions' here - every client has different needs for their website and your site will be tailored to your needs. As a rough guide, website design and build starts from around £700. Often what people think they need their website to do at the outset can change as they find out what's possible, and it can adapt as the project goes on, so it's good to think carefully what you need, we can discuss this early on to give you a realistic price for building your website.

After getting an idea of your requirements, ideally in a meeting, I can prepare a brief with costs detailing what that will include. If over the course of development the brief needs to change, we can adjust pricing accordingly.

Maintenance costs

From £40/yr

As a baseline, there is a £40 annual fee to apply security and maintenance updates to the software of your site and provide a reasonable amount of initial support on updating your website.

If you decide you'd rather pay to have some of the more advanced amendments to your site (for example, you might be happy doing blog posts, but want help when it comes to whole new pages or categories in your site), this is billed based on time spent at £40/hr.


"Thanks for the great website. It's just what I was after... Thanks for all your support and advice too - the guide to editing the site is really helpful and easy to use."

Website hosting

From £40/yr

Web hosting is the space on a computer server where your website lives, the server has special software on it to 'serve' your website when a computer browser requests it.

If you already have a website and want it updated, and are happy with your current hosting package I can work with this provided you have the necessary login details and your package meets the new sites technical requirements.

If you would rather change providers or don't yet have a web hosting package, I can provide one to include space for a website; registering the website address (domain); related email addresses, and backups in case of technical problems. The server is fast, reliable, secure, and based in England. Hosting starts from as little as £40/year.

If you already have a domain name and wish to transfer it, paying just for the hosting, that can be arranged too.


From £140 (half day)

As part of your website design and build, you will receive a free guide to editing your site (sample available below), however you may decide hands-on training at your premises for you and or others would be helpful. This can be quoted for (it's dependant on location, complexity of your site and number of people requiring training).
