Website Support and Maintenance Costs
For most business websites we recommend finding a partner who provides flexible on-demand website support and maintenance services and quick reaction time. For a busy website, a support subscription plan with an efficiently planned schedule can ensure better service. It’s common that a web design agency can charge a 2-3x hourly rate for urgent fixes. When an update can wait, an on-demand support and maintenance service will cost your agency’s rate multiplied by the time necessary to complete the fix.
Website Hosting Costs
The hosting service for a typical business website is usually cheap – expect to pay $3 – $10 per month. Your web design agency should always be able to suggest a good hosting provider based on your needs or some of them will include hosting costs in your maintenance fees.
