Posted on: September 28th, 2016 by Afa No Comments


Sometimes we have confused to create and have a website and we often think about, “Is this too expensive?”, “Wow, so cheap! Is it good?”, “How much I must give a quotation for this website?”. All of questions sometimes coming from the people who is wanting to have a website or even from the novice web developer.

To create a website today is actually quite cheap and easy. But we must exactly understand what makes a website is valuable and useful. There are also websites that are categorized expensive, does this mean too expensive. Well not yet. Websites can be created depending on the needs of the owner of the website.

Is there any free website for us? Yes, but usually such a website is highly dependent on the provider of the website features. For example, we cannot change the name of the website to be unique as we want, a very limited capacity, even there is some ads installed on our website. If you want your website look more professional and premium, certainly do not expect the feature for a free website to make it.

In this article we will discuss about what components are required to create a website, so that we can know better how to maximize and bring a value for the website to be created.

The Website Name / Domain

The website name / domain is a unique name that can be called as an address for our website. The function is same with home address, only has one address for each house, if we find 2 / more exactly has same address, it will be the negligence of local government. :). But surely, the website address is a unique name.

If unique that means we can create a website name / domain as we want? The answer is ‘Yes’, as long as the name is not owned by others. As has been said above, the website name is unique, so if there are other people who have it before us, we cannot have it. If the name was already owned by someone else, and we still want to have it, we have to buy it. Price? Of course the price will depend on offering from the owners.

How about the price for the domain that not owned by someone else? The price is relative chep, that is around Rp, 150,000 for a year.

To check the availability of the domain that we want is a great deal on the internet. Usually we can check, buy a name and can also directly buy hosting (this will be discussed after this section).

Web Hosting

If we call domain as an address so hosting is a house where we shelter and put the furnitures.

The function of web hosting is like a hard disk or other media storage. Web hosting is used to save database that used for our website and has a limited storage memory. The storage capacity using the same units as the hard disk or other storage medium. The data usually used for a website application and data like images, video, text, etc.

What is the price required for web hosting? If you need a web hosting only for a company profile or online stores with products less than 100 products, is usually enough to subscribe to hosting at a price of Rp. 350,000 / year.

Note also for servers used by hosting providers. Try the one for ‘googling’ hosting service provider who does have a good track record.

Design, Development and Implementation

Website creation cannot be separated from design, development and implementation. In this stage we require people who have a special ability (not a mutant). People who do have the background to create a website with special skills. This guy professionals.

Price of this section is the most difficult to predict, because it relates to assessment rates of the owner of such skill, both individuals and web development company.

If I may give you an estimate, maybe the price around 1 million rupiah to provide the design draft per page. For the development and implementation may be in the range of 1 – 9 million rupiah. This is an estimation price for the services provided by the individual person and for a simple website. Maybe the price of the web development company will be more expensive, because the company may be more assured about their professionalism. That is not meant to underestimate personal services, more of personal services that could have been more professional than the company.

That price above is just an estimation and may change depending on the features requirement and implemented on our website. It could be the website price reaches tens of millions or even hundreds of millions.

Remember, this is the part that will be enjoyed by visitors of our website. So the professionalism of our website is determined by how well the website looks and useful for our visitor that we target.

Internet Marketing


Actually, the three points above is enough to create a website and does not need this section. But today the competition in the digital world is increasingly fierce. And to create our website well known and easily searchable, we need the services of internet marketing to raise the rating of our website. The services are called “SEO”, “SEM”, “SMO”, “SMM”. How about the cost? It costs around Rp. 500K – Rp. 5M / keyword. Wow!

Yes, this section has an important role in the digital world makes online store owners told that their biggest sales come from Search Engine Optimization & Marketing and Social Media Optimization & Marketing.

So, How about the price?

The price described above is just a bit estimation for a website. We could have a website without paying any money, but we need the ability in the field. And the price of the website service / development is not fixed and negotiable, once again, like mentioned before that is depends on the assessment rate of the owner of such skill and also the decision of whether we as service buyers appreciate the skill of the owner.
