Web Design & Hosting Plan

I'm not sure who to ask about this so... you'll do.

I'm going to get into web designing (and hosting) so I've been working out a price structure. This is what I have so far and I'd like to know if it's reasonable or not.


50 for first-time custom site layout
30 for custom site layout change/revamp
20-40 per page, depending on complexity
5 a month per page for maintenance
10 a month for hosting
- 3GB storage
- 25GB transfer
- Upgradeable as needed

Questions? Suggestions? Thoughts?

Eehhh.... not sure, you should probably look at other hosting pages like www.deltaarc.net about pricing scheems.

I've been pricing quite a few places. Most design companies I checked charge about $80 per page (or they didn't give a quote). The hosting company I have in mind is pretty cheap, and seems better than that one in terms of service.

Also, I'm considering getting a dedicated server to host these on if demand is high enough. That way I can keep an eye on things personally.

Hi Russell! It's been a long time since I've talked to you.

I added you to my friends list.

I'll be around on AIM eventually, my screen name is "Dante Sensei"


P.S. I'd comment on the prices, but I've got no idea how much you should charge, since I'm unaware of how much other services charge. *nodnod*

You apparently didn't read the other comments on this entry. I stated most hosts I looked up priced at $80 a page or $400 for a five page package.

Yes, I know it's been a long time and I can't say I've missed you that much. It seems you've come a ways since we last talked. I'm a little curious as to how far, but not enough to go digging.

If you want to talk you know my screen name. It hasn't changed in years and isn't likely to.
