|Q.||Website Prices - What should I expect to pay for a website?|
||This is one of the main questions we are asked on a daily basis. There are no set costs for website design, the price of a website depends on your requirements and the functionality of your website. Not every website is the same, some websites contain e-commerce functions to allow people to buy online, others contain online databases such as car dealers and online estate agents, others are general brochure sites. If you are shopping around for quotations do not be surprised to get quotations from different web design companies ranging from hundreds to thousands of euro for the same specification. Its important to know exactly what you require to ensure you are not overcharged for unnecessary work.|
