It is necessary for every business to have a website in this digital world for it to be competitive. However, to have a presence online, you need to consider the cost to get the most out of it. The cost of owning a website in Kenya is a question that we hear a lot from business owners who want to take their brands online. This is a tricky question because websites don’t have a fixed price. Every website is unique, and depending on what you want on your site, the cost can either be lower or higher.

Some cost factors are universal in every website; thus, they determine the cost of the website.
The price of developing a website depends entirely on the type as every website is unique in its own way. It is easier to make a blog or landing page than an online shop; a small business website will have fewer pages than a corporate website, hence the price variance.
Every website needs a domain name and an address that can be reached, that is, a server. You can acquire this as part of the website service. At totalwebz Kenya, we have an affordable web hosting package you can check out on our site.
Various software, such as programming languages and content management software, is used to build a website. The cost will differ depending on the choice you make. Some technologies are easier, while others are complex to implement. For example, some websites will require modern technologies so that they can be used by multiple users at a time and are real-time and fast. This kind of website will be more expensive.
Depending on what you need on your site, you might require additional plugins, apps, or any other software that will require money.
You will have to pay for the website development service if you let an expert build it.
After building a website, you need to keep running by updating it regularly. This includes search engine optimization, marketing, and google analytics. All this will cost you some money.
