Website based on a template or individual development of a web project: price review

What criterion do we usually carefully monitor before deciding to order any services? That’s right, the price. And depending on the type of service, the price range can be quite wide. A good example is the development of web projects. After all, to the question “How much does it cost to create a website in Europe?” It’s impossible to answer unequivocally. The large range between the minimum and maximum prices here is due to the fact that the cost of website programming is calculated individually, taking into account a number of factors.

First of all, the price of creating a website depends on which solution and website management system you choose: a website based on a ready-made solution or individual full-cycle development.

If your budget is limited and you are looking for an inexpensive solution, then the first option is for you. Although prices for ready-made websites start from 12,000  , they also vary: the cost of performing the work is influenced by the cost of the template, a paid or free site management system, the urgency of providing results to the customer, etc.

If your financial capabilities allow, you can order a website with an individual design and programming according to your specifications without any restrictions. Yes, it will cost much more , from 85,000  and above, but a team of experts will offer you a full range of website development services.

What does the cost of a turnkey website consist of?

Domain name

The name of the site that users enter into the browser's address bar to go to the site. Domain prices depend on the chosen domain zone and start from 150 € per year. The average cost of a domain name is about 600 € per year.
Price: from 400 €/year
01 Stage

Hosting services

They ensure the availability of the site on the Internet and range from 350 to 3000 € per year.
Price: from 1200 €/year
02 Stage

Content Management System (CMS)

Depending on the required functionality, you can choose a paid or free CMS for the site. At the same time, the cost of paid management systems depends on the license price and varies depending on the capabilities of each CMS. For example, expanding the functionality of a site on Bitrix usually costs more than similar work with a site on OpenCart, and the Wordpress system is generally a free engine with a huge number of free modules.
Price: from 0 UAH to 33,000 €
03 Stage

Cost of development of technical specifications

A technical specification (TOR) is a detailed document that describes who performs what types of work to create a website. Technical specifications are necessary to ensure that the ideas about the project in the minds of the customer and developers coincide as much as possible. That is why the technical specification should be as detailed, unambiguous and objective as possible.

The price of developing technical specifications for creating a website depends on several factors:
- Availability of initial information.
- The number of customer requirements for the project.

It is important to understand that every business is unique. And in this regard, customers interested in successfully presenting their activities online want their future sites to have one or another set of functions. And the more such wishes there are, the longer it takes to compile the technical specifications. Accordingly, the more expensive its development is.
Price: from €4,500
04 Stage

Website design cost

The more pages of different structures you need to create, the higher the cost of website design will be. In this case, the price can be calculated in several ways:

1. Based on the cost per page.
2. Based on the number of hours spent on work.

When choosing the first scheme, in order to correctly calculate the cost of website design, you should keep in mind the following points:

- Each menu item is 1 page.
- The cost of designing the content part of any article is calculated per 1 page.

Therefore, if you are going to order a multi-page website, the price for the design will be calculated based not on the total number of pages, but on different types. The basic cost of a multi-page website when created in a web studio is from 10,000 €.
The number of pages to be rendered includes the main page, internal pages, as well as pages that open when you click on link buttons (for example, “Answers to questions”, etc.). The number of unique internal pages that require a separate drawing by the designer includes:

- If you offer goods or services, these are 2 pages: a page for a list of goods or services and, upon transition, a page for a specific service or product.
- 1 contact page.
- If the site has a blog, 2 more unique pages are added: one of them contains announcements of all news, and the other contains the articles themselves.
- 1 page 404.

As a result, for a classic website you need to create an original design of at least 7 pages of different types. Also, the price of website design is influenced by adaptive design - the appearance of web pages on different mobile devices (smartphones and tablets). The cost of adaptation is calculated separately for each page with a specific structure.
Adaptive and web page design cost approximately the same. And if you want to add an additional language version to the site, this will increase the cost of the project by 20-50%.
Price: from €1400 per page
05 Stage

Cost of website layout

The creation of a website design layout is followed by the layout stage - one of the most important in the process of creating a web project. Layout refers to the coding of each web page in HTML and CSS, so that all browsers recognize and render the site properly.

As a rule, the cost of website layout is not fixed: it is formed taking into account factors such as the complexity of the project design, the amount of work, the customer’s personal requirements, etc. The price range for website layout services in Europe is from 800 to 1,900 € per layout/page. If you already have design layouts of your project and you want to know the approximate price of the layout, we need to familiarize yourself with the project and clarify the working points: what number of resolutions will the layout be for, what browsers are taken into account when assessing quality, what additional requirements must the original one meet? code.
Price: from €1900 per page
06 Stage

Cost of website programming

For the full operation of your project, you may need additional functionality not provided by the “boxed” version of the CMS. Therefore, in some cases, a site consisting of only 5 pages will cost more than a multi-page site consisting of hundreds of pages. The price will be determined taking into account all modifications made to the project.

The cost of 1 hour of work for a programmer depends on his level of qualifications and experience. With the transition to a new level, the price tag increases by 1.5-2 times. At the same time, purchasing the services of a specialist in a web studio costs twice as much as hiring a freelance programmer.
Price: from €650/hour
07 Stage

Site content

Price: from €350/hour
08 Stage

Project management and client consultations

The more often and longer you communicate with the contractor during the work process, the higher the invoice amount that he will issue you upon completion of the project. Therefore, it is worth considering in advance the list of requirements for the future site and discussing them with the developer before starting work.
Price: from €800/hour
09 Stage

Cost of a corporate website

If we are talking about a corporate website that was not created on a template and without a large amount of junk code, its minimum price starts from 24,500 €.

The cost of this service includes the development of a unique design, layout, adaptation for mobile devices, programming, testing and making edits when launching a web project.

A corporate website is a modern representation of a legal entity on the Internet. The presence of such an online platform allows you to qualitatively and fully present yourself online:

  • large or medium-sized companies;
  • non-profit organizations.

Moreover, a corporate website can be called a useful tool for promoting both young companies and organizations with a certain history, increasing trust in them from the target audience.

The peculiarity of a corporate website is that it is able to solve the problems of three parties simultaneously: the company’s employees, its clients and partners. Depending on the type of business and the goals of the company, these tasks may be different, but the main ones include:

  • Formation and improvement of the company’s image . By using corporate colors and design elements, as well as posting reliable information about the company, a corporate website strengthens the loyalty of its customers.
  • Providing target audience with complete information about activities. A good corporate website, in its sections about the company, management and employees, products/services, and portfolio, provides visitors with answers to all their questions about the company without having to contact its representatives.
  • Expansion of client and partner base. Each element of the corporate website, containing information about the company’s activities and terms of cooperation with it, is aimed at attracting interest from B2C and/or B2B clients.
  • Attracting new employees. By publishing information about current vacancies on the company’s website, you can expand the possibilities for searching and recruiting personnel.
  • Product advertising. A corporate website can be used as an inexpensive platform for advertising your products or services, informing visitors about current promotions and special offers.

In order to fully fulfill its tasks, the corporate website of a modern organization must have appropriate functionality , which must be thought through and developed at the first stage of project development. The list of special functions of a corporate website usually includes:

  • File storage and sharing.
  • Maintaining document and trade flow.
  • Control of product supply and consumption.
  • Individual interaction with each client or partner.

Depending on the company’s goals, for the effective operation of its website, in some cases standard functionality (feedback forms, etc.) is sufficient, in others it is necessary to develop additional modules (for example, an online consultant), which takes more time from the specialists involved. As a result, the more complex the project, the more expensive its total cost.

In addition to well-thought-out functionality, a corporate website must meet other modern requirements: contain the required amount of information, be multilingual and adapted for mobile devices, have high loading speed and reliable hosting.

Online store cost

The “showcase” of an offline store, located online and allowing you to make purchases, is an online store . If it is on a template and small (consists of a small number of sections, does not have complex filtering of product items and cumulative discounts, does not involve integration with Nova Poshta, payment systems, 1C, aggregators such as Rozetka and other services), then it can cost you from 25,000 €. While the price of an online store with thousands of product items on Bitrix can start from 80,000 €, and the time frame for creating a large-scale project can be from 80 working days.

However, we would like to immediately warn those who have already fallen for the cost of a ready-made online store based on a template. Due to the specifics of the product, the scope of trade and other factors, ordering the development of an online selling platform using a template is very risky. And then you will find out why.

The main advantages of ordering a standard project are the low cost of development and speed of implementation. As a rule, to launch such a site, it is enough to adjust the design details and fill the pages with content. However, it is possible that in the process of creating a website using a template, performers may encounter some difficulties:

  • in changing the principle of operation of the blocks;
  • in SEO optimization;
  • changing the structure of web pages and sections of the site;
  • in adding blocks, fields, elements.

All this leads to an increase in the cost of a typical web project. Therefore, before choosing a more economical option at first glance, it is worth considering the possibility of developing an exclusive online store, taking into account all the features of the online tool you need to work, or buying a proven solution, when all the nuances are familiar and the problems can be solved.

Price of a WordPress site

The WordPress platform, which can be used free of charge, appeared in 2003. Since then, many users have chosen it for its stylish design, simple backup setup, constant updates, search engine friendliness, and built-in SEO support.

In the general CMS rating as of March 2020, the share of WordPress sites in the .ru domain zone is almost 45%. The popularity of this control system is mainly due to its free nature. Thanks to this feature, WordPress is often chosen for creating blogs, business card sites, online catalogs, news sites or information-themed platforms.

Currently, the total number of sites developed on WordPress worldwide exceeds 500 thousand. And among the well-known branded web resources created on WordPress, one can name vogue.com, newyorker.com, nasa.gov, mercedes-benz.com.

Advantages of WordPress:

Disadvantages of WordPress:

Large range of ready-made templates.A small set of basic features.
Possibility to download CMS and templates for free.Low speed for loading the site.
Quick installation.Significant load on the server.
Ability to download add-ons and extensions (plugins).A large number of poorly made themes and extensions with errors.
Clear and simple administrative panel.Duplicate images and pages.
Ability to change template code.The biased attitude of search engines towards a site on a free “engine”.

It is recommended that beginners choose the free WordPress platform for a confident start in their online activities. The exception is online stores with different payment methods, personal accounts and multi-currencies, as well as large-scale Internet portals, corporate or other sites containing financial information and therefore requiring reliable protection against hacking.

Question answer

What does the price of a turnkey website include, and what services do you need to pay extra for?

A typical set of turnkey website creation services includes:

  • Analysis of competitors’ websites.
  • Creation of the structure and description of the website features in the technical specifications.
  • Web design development.
  • Installation and configuration of a content management system.
  • Layout and programming.
  • Filling the site with content (usually the price includes basic content of about 10-15 pages).
  • Placing the finished website on hosting.

The services for which you will need to pay extra and order separately when ordering a turnkey website include:

  • Domain and hosting (domain must be paid annually, paid hosting – annually or monthly).
  • Technical optimization of pages for SEO promotion.
  • Website advertising (its cost can be several times higher than the cost of website development).
  • Personal training in working with the website (the cost depends on the customer’s level of knowledge regarding working with the web resource).
Is there a difference in the cost of creating a website with a digital agency in Western and Eastern Europe?

Before ordering website development, it is advisable to carefully study the prices in the markets of the regions that interest you. This will allow you to make the most correct choice in favor of a truly high-quality result and at the same time manage your budget wisely.

Taking into account all the trends: the fight against the spread of coronavirus, remote work is allowed at the legislative level, many companies have abandoned offices and transferred their employees to remote work, it has become completely unimportant where the contractor is located – in Europe or beyond. Online meetings are now the norm and you don’t need to bother searching for developers in your region and demanding a live meeting.

If we take into account all the overhead costs, then creating an online store in Western Europe for further SEO promotion will be much more expensive than a similar solution in Eastern Europe. This is influenced by the cost of office rent, which in Western Europe is much more expensive than in Eastern Europe, and the level of salaries of specialists, which is also much higher, and the general market conditions. In any case, you make the decision based on your own preferences and financial capabilities.

How significant is the difference in the cost of a website in Western and Eastern Europe?

Prices for creating a website in Western and Eastern Europe differ significantly. Moreover, both among freelancers and among developers of IT companies and digital agencies. As an example, we compared the current prices for landing page development in Western and Eastern Europe.

Thus, the minimum price offered by some European freelancers for a landing page with a non-template design is $160. For this amount, most likely, you will get a simple one-page website without modules. But on foreign freelance exchanges you are unlikely to find performers who are ready to complete the same project for less than 350 €.

In general, the cost of turnkey one-page website development services in Western Europe IT companies varies from $270 (when contacting a small web studio) and from $3,000 (when contacting a digital agency). Whereas ordering a landing page from one of the Eastern Europe digital agencies will cost you at least 1,500 €.

The difference in price for creating other types of websites may be less significant. However, this does not change the fact that when hiring European contractors you will have to spend a larger amount of money than when ordering the services of Western Europe developers.

How much does it cost to create a website in Western Europe?

Price offers for creating a website using a paid template in Western Europe start from 12,000 €. The minimum cost for developing a typical all-inclusive website is €20,000. The difference in price of approximately 55% is explained by the peculiarity of forming the cost of a turnkey website: the cost of the additional number of man-hours required to launch the project is added to the base cost of website development. And since it often takes much more time to refine the standard functionality of a finished website than is spent at the initial stage of production, this entails a significant increase in the overall cost of the web project.

If we are talking about a corporate website that was not created on a template and without a large amount of junk code, its minimum price starts from 24,500 €. The cost of this service includes the development of a unique design, layout, adaptation for mobile devices, programming, testing and making edits when launching a web project. 

How to estimate the cost of website development?

Website development is a specific service, because… We suggest ordering something abstract. And in order to understand how much it costs, it is appropriate to consider this issue in more detail using the example of a freelancer and an agency.

A freelance developer determines the cost of his services as follows:

  • First, he sets himself the level of desired monthly earnings (for example, 30,000 € per month).
  • Then it analyzes how many hours per day and days per month it will work (for example, 6 hours 20 working days per month).
  • Dividing 30,000 € by 120 hours, he determines the cost of 1 hour of his work – 250 €.  

When you order the creation of a similar website in a web studio, the cost of services is more expensive. Indeed, in this case, additional costs (office rent, taxes, etc.) are added to the cost of the time that the direct developer spends on the project. In addition, creating a website in a specialized company requires the work of a whole team, the cost of services of each of the participants is reflected in the estimate.

Give an example of calculating the cost of a website?

To better understand the mechanism for estimating the cost of a web project, let’s first consider an example of calculating the cost of a website in the case of several freelance specialists (designer and IT specialist) working on its creation.

We know the prices for the design of internal pages (main – 7,500 €, internal – 2,000 €), the cost of 1 hour of work of an IT specialist (500 €) and the total time spent on the project (30 hours).

First of all, we calculate how many internal pages the designer needs to draw. For example, we counted 5 of them. Then we multiply 5 internal pages by 2,000 € per piece and get 10,000 €. We add the cost of home page design in the amount of 7,500 €. Total 17,500 €.

Now we calculate how much the services of an IT specialist will cost. We multiply 30 hours spent by 500 €/hour and get 15,000 €.

As a result, the cost of creating a website will be 32,500 €.

But this was a simplified example, in which only 2 specialists were involved, and the cost of website design was calculated per page. Usually, when it comes to developing a serious project, the customer turns to a web studio. And here 5-6 specialists (manager, designer, art director, layout designer, programmer, tester) are involved in the process at different stages.

So, in fact, you have to pay for the services of each of the team members. Now let’s calculate the cost of services using the example of developing a one-page website in a web studio. The cost of a standard hour for a specialist, depending on the contractor you choose, can range from 550 to 700 €. Let’s take the figure of 600 € for calculation.

As can be seen from the table, in an ideal scenario, the development of a one-page website takes 50 hours of working time from different web studio specialists and is estimated at a minimum of 30,000 €.

Is it necessary to make an advance payment when ordering website development?

Yes. According to the market standard, when developing a website on a template, you make an advance payment of 60% for the work on creating the website, and pay the remaining amount after the fact. When developing an individual website and creating high-load projects, there are 3 approaches to paying for services:

  1. staged payment, when you make 100% payment before the start of each stage;
  2. payment for hours, when you pay upon the fact of each integration or reporting period;
  3. and payment in installments, 50% at the start of the project and 50% upon its completion.

Typically, the payment scheme is agreed upon in advance and fixed in the development agreement.
