I have some friends who are starting a business and need to set up a website for it. They have been quoted a couple of prices which seem high to me. Does anyone know about how much it should cost to set up a nice website for a new business?

What can I do next?

I work for and we have a template based program that is pretty inexpensive to use. I also know a very good webdesigner with good prices. I am not sure what you have been quoted before but you can go to her website at Generally for a website to be created for you it is anywhere from $1,000 to $5,000 depending on how complex and detailed the website is going to be. If you have any other questions feel free to email me I have a lot of connections and info on this subject since I do work for an internet company. Have a great day I hope the info helps.

What a giant can of worms this is. Setting up a site can be both incredibly easy and a nightmare. Depending on the purpose of the page and its nature it can be as little as 6.95 a month - to hundreds per month to maintain.

I run (an ezine) for 6.95 a month but handle all the updates myself. For the same price I also run my book's site at with simple PayPal links to collect my money.

The hard stuff is the shopping carts and encryption along with support forums. Setting them up can take a lot of time which translates into money. The software I use is from Macromedia and cost me about $1000.00 plus a month of my time to learn it.

To set up a site like my book's -- simple and fairly static, I would probably charge $300.00.... but it would be the client's responsibility to handle the hosting.
