I am often asked “How much?” or I’m told “I’m on a budget”
First, lets start with the basics, what it will cost to own a personal website .
Domain Name (i.e.www.yournamehere.com) = $10 – $15 per year
Website Hosting (where your www.yournamehere.com will live on the internet) = $10 – $100 per month
SSL Certificate (SSL stands for “Secure Socket Layer.” SSL Certificates validate your website’s identity, and encrypt the information visitors send to, or receive from, your site.) = $70 – $200 per year
If you’re planning on selling products online, you will need e-commerce extensions.
Below are a few crucial extensions every WooCommerce site should be running.

The best way to gain an idea of how much it will cost to design your website is to sit down together and talk about what you want for your web presence. However, in my experience, I can usually get a simple website (like this one or one like (Jill’s Impressions) up and running for you with about 10 hours of work.
