How much does a web site cost?
This question really belongs in the same hard-to-answer category as
the "How long is a piece of string?" question. There are many
variables which determine the price of creating (or re-designing) a
web site including - number of pages, complexity of the design and the
availability of content such as images and text in a digital format.
That said, a simple, small web site (approx 1-5 pages) can start from
NZ$500. If you would like a quote please complete the Inquiry

There are also discounted prices for community organisations and schools,
please note this on the Inquiry Form.
Other related costs to consider
As well as the cost of the design of the web site there
are two other potential costs (depending on your situation) to consider
- registering your domain name and hosting your site on a web server.
Registering a domain name name will incur an annual cost
of between NZ$20-NZ$50. This is dependent on the type of domain name
you are registering (e.g. .nz, .com, .name, .biz)
and also who you register it with. There are also companies which offer
free domain name registration as long as you host your web site with
them for a year.
Availability of domain names can be checked online - at
.nz domain names, and at Register.com
for other domain names. LoopyDog Web Design can register your domain
name for you if required.
The second cost will be for a company to host your web
site. Once again, there is a large variance in what is charged with
costs starting from NZ$10 per month for simple web page hosting. LoopyDog
Web Design can provide you with details of hosting packages with a number
of providers, arrange hosting and upload your web site to their servers.
