Pricing Summary:


How much does a website cost?

Good question. The first question we're always asked. And, unfortunately, the most tricky to answer. You see, every website is different, and essentially you pay for our time, expertise and information storage. So a simple website will be cheaper than a more complex one, and some things take longer to do than others! To understand the finer details of how we charge for websites, please look at our pricing details. For now, here's a quick guide. It's not a definitive list, as your needs will be unique, and you'll need to take additional costs into account if you want to add certain features, but the following should give you a good idea of what you want.

Most importantly, please remember that you're encouraged to contact us and discuss your requirements. We're more than happy to provide advice, guidance and free estimates. There is no obligation on your part. Discussing your requirements will give you a much better idea of the best way to achieve what you want from your website at a cost you can afford. You can also visit our Deciding what you want page to help you think about the sort of site that will suit your needs.

In case you're interested, the Meticulous site would cost over £3,000!


Please note that domain registration fees need to be paid every 2 years in order to maintain your domain name, and your hosting plan fee needs to be paid annually. Meticulous can arrange this for you. The only other costs to you are for periodic maintenance when you request it (see Updates and Changes above).



What you get for FREE (as part of the service):

Once you've decided on what you want your site to do and to look like, you'll need to pay for it as described above. However, we do provide a service, and it goes without saying that not everything is charged for. Here's what you can expect to get:

  • Initial consultation/quote
  • Basic meta-tag list generation
  • Layout consultation
  • Text entry (when supplied in electronic formats)
  • Graphics/Photo entry (when supplied in electronic formats)
  • Headlining and Layout
  • Search Engine-friendly design for high results rankings and good 'searchability'
  • Editing (ie proofreading and spelling/grammar correction)
  • Full link-testing during build
  • Limited cross-platform and cross-browser compatibility
  • Hosting setup
  • FTP setup
  • Hosted e-mail/webmail initial setup
  • Correction of any errors on our part
  • Support by e-mail
  • Minor updates (corrections, news items, new contact details, CV updates etc.)
  • ...and lots more minor details

What we don't offer:

Big web-design companies offer virtually any kind of package, and they can do that because they employ lots of people, some of whom specialise in certain types of programming and design areas. Meticulous isn't like that, and therefore there are some things we just can't do. Mind you, if you wanted to include these in your website, you'd be looking at four-figure sums anyway, so it's probably just as well that we don't tempt you!

  • Flash
  • E-commerce
  • Content Management Systems
  • Database Management
  • Scratch-built Custom Scripts
  • MySQL
  • Frames
