Are you wondering why wordpress development cost is higher than other Website Builders like Wix or Weebly or Jimdo. Well, Before i was developing website on Wix and Weebly CMS. As you know both are Drag and Drop Website builders and it’s very useful CMS when you don’t have any technical knowledge at all still you can manage your Informative Website, Ecommerce Website easily.
So i tried with WordPress CMS and was excited to Use Divi Theme as my WordPress Theme.
Now anyone looking for WordPress based Website for their Business, You should know Costings before you think that WordPress is best CMS and it allow us to make more SEO Friendly Websites in the World.
First of all The Cost Calculations Starts from the Hosting, Which i purchased Siteground as i think they have very affordable Pricing, We can Free SSL, Free CDN and Other useful Plugins which can help us to achieve our Website more SEO Friendly and Roboust Performance.
So when you purchase this Hosting It will ask you for Annual Plans which will come around $120 for a year and you get other options like Domain Security, Privacy Security options too.
I would suggest to with Growbig Options as you can have 20 GB Space and 25,000 Monthly Visitor’s bandwidth.
For the 1st Year only you will get Costing of $9.99 Per Month after the 1st year the charges will be $24.99 which is orginal cost of that plan.
After that you need to purchase a WordPress theme as well. In my case i purchased Divi theme, Which is a very User Friendly, Easy to Use and Manage, you also get pre made templates so even with less technical Knowledge you can get started for designing website by own as i did.
which again cost me $89 for 1 Year License. but on Special Discount they offered me $160 more to get Life Time License so in actually cost you for Lifetime license cost around $249 One Time payment.
Now once you are finished with Web Hosting and Themes, Again new Cost get started like,
1 Yoast Plugin or All in One SEO – $89 per site
2 Forms Plugin – $39 per site
3 WP Rocket (For Speed Optimization and Security) – $49 per site
4 CRM Integration – Almost $99 Per Month
5 Chat Plugins – Almost $59 per month
and many other plugins will again cost you some extra bucks so be ready for the same.
So if you are planning to get started with WordPress Website Development Make sure you keep at least $300 for just purchasing Web Hosting, Themes, Plugins etc.
