I am a qualified freelance web developer and this page explains my hourly rate pricing and fixed costs.

My Hourly Rate

I charge €40 per hour (tax included) for all services related to Web Development. I usually insist on working on the clock as there are just too many unknown variables when it comes to websites, but I can provide fixed quotations in some cases.

What do I charge for?

As a freelance worker I have to ensure that all of my time spent working on your project is covered. This includes all web development work and meetings.

I consider web development work to include:

  • Drawing Designs
  • Writing Technical Specifications
  • Coding

I generally don't need to meet my clients in order to complete a project but I am of course happy to meet. Unfortunately, I have to bill for meetings once a project begins.

How much is a website?

Every website is different with unique requirements so I don't currently offer a general price for new websites. I have built barebones websites for under €1,000 and I have built complex websites with hundreds of pages that cost over €10,000.

The average price of a newly designed five-to-ten page brochure-style website that is SEO friendly and PageSpeed optimised will usually run between €1500 and €2500, depending on the features required. We can always cut out SEO and Speed Optimisation to save on costs but I would rarely recommend that.

Fixed Workloads

I can only provide fixed quotations when I know exactly what the work involves. In general, I will need you to provide detailed documentation of the work in order for me to quote a price.

For larger websites this documentation needs to be of a professional grade in order for me to accurately calculate the time and costs. If you cannot provide these documents then I can write them as a separate service.

Bigger Servers

My nano hosting will easily handle hundreds of visitors to your website per day, and this is usually more than most local business websites need. I also provide much more powerful servers for high-traffic websites.

Monthly WordPress Backups and Updates

If you don't have the time to keep your WordPress website up to date then I highly recommend you hire someone to do it for you. An out of date WordPress website is an easy target for malware.

€99 per site per year
