How much does a website cost?

One of the most common questions that reaches us: “What does it cost?”

We would therefore like to give you an overview of what can influence the costs around your website. Basically, following rule applies: The greater the effort, the higher the final sum. It is logical that the costs correlate with the effort. If costs are to be saved, it is therefore better to consider where the high expenses are incurred. For a cost inquiry of your project, please contact us here.

Good & cheap and fast at the same time?

Admittedly, we would all like to receive maximum services at a minimum cost and preferably at the fastest time. Depending on the budget and the priorities of the customer, it can be said that almost anything is possible.

Statistically, a holistic creation of a website costs between 2 and 10 thousand euros. We would like to list which factors influence the final sum in the following section.

The following factors influence the effort and thus the price of

Simple web business card where only basic information can be found if explicitly searched for.


New customer acquisition on the new website through targeted online marketing. Customers interact on the site or purchase if necessary. products via an online shop.

The site is attractive in design, but simple. Default templates can be used. The degree of individual adaptation is low.


First-class design ambition with individual elements that are creatively displayed on the website. This gives you a WOW effect that is remembered by visitors to your website.

A classic one-pager is a kind of business card on the Internet. All content is displayed on a single page, so there are no subpages to click on.


The page structure is complex and consists of different pages and subpages. With a clean menu structure, even complex content can be clearly structured and displayed.

The customer has no content or images ready for the new website. He does not know what content can be presented and in what way. Moreover, he does not know what could be presented on the individual pages.


The customer has an accurate idea of which menu items and thus which pages should exist. He knows what to present on the pages. He can make all texts and images available in full on his own.

The site is for informational purposes only. The customer may take note of the information available on the site. There are no plans to contact you via a form.


You can interact with or communicate with the customer in a variety of ways on the site. Contact forms, forums, blogs or, for example, chat functions are possible.

The page is created and optimized on Desktop Format. Mobile views on your tablet or smartphone are generally possible, but not optimized.


After the creation of the desktop version, both the tablet and smartphone views are individually optimized and adapted. In addition to the ideal display, loading time optimizations and the creation of a mobile menu are also made, for example.

There is no sale of products or services on the website. Therefore, there is no shopping cart and no check-out functionality.


If products or services are to be sold, a comprehensive shop software is set up, so that in addition to shopping cart and check-out functionality, many other functions are possible. The existence of various payment options, an integrated billing system or the management of one’s own warehouse would thus be possible examples.

The website exists in one language. If the visitor to the website prefers a different language, he or she has no possibility to change the page language, except for example to use the Google Translate functionality for the website.


The site is built on several languages and can be changed from language to language at the touch of a button. This feature is more important than expected, especially in internationally oriented shops.

The customer dispenses with individual functions and sticks to the standard.


Individual functions are programmed to the existing website. For example, a tool could be built that would allow the customer to place an order for a delivery service.

The customer does not have a high design requirement, which means that few correction loops are necessary. Votes or phone calls remain within the scope.


The customer offers first-class services and therefore has a very high standard. The page should be thought through down to the smallest detail. Adjustments, such as sizes, colors and spacing, should be customizable at any time according to customer requirements.

There is no specific deadline for the implementation of the project. This does not create any time pressure for the creation of the website.


The page must be completed by a certain date. The implementation time is so short that other ongoing projects have to be stopped.

The site is not intended to acquire new customers. It should only be found if you also explicitly search for it.


A comprehensive range of SEO search engine optimization, social media marketing and other measures leads to users being directed to the site who have never been to the site before.

The website either does not require ongoing maintenance or the ongoing support is provided by the team of WebsiteStuttgart.


The resulting website requires a high level of ongoing care. The customer decides to enter content himself. This requires intensive training and possible adjustments to the existing content.

Why not go to the cheapest?

We all know it: the cheapest one usually has the edge. Now that a new website is coming up, you will probably request a few different offers. At first, the offer with the lowest costs will appear attractive.
What our team from WebsiteStuttgart would like to draw your attention to:

  • Are the costs transparently listed or are hidden costs added? Monthly costs in particular are not negligible.
  • Are legal aspects taken into account? (SSL encryption, imprint, data protection, GDPR, etc.)
  • Will the site also be mobile?
  • Is the website available through search engines? Will search engines be provided with a structured XML representation for a better ranking?
  • Do you later have an insight into statistics such as visitor numbers, user behaviour, etc.? How is cookies and data storage handled?
  • Can you easily manage the page yourself later? How flexible is the web designer for later adjustments? Does it stay with you in the long term and is always available?
