There are five basic costs.
- domain name registration
- web hosting
- web design and development
Domain Name Registration
You must register a domain name for your business. The name must comply with certain rules. It will cost around $70 for a "www.yourbusiness.com.au" name for two years.
A well-chosen domain name can help customer recognition and increase traffic. It is increasingly more difficult to acquire a catchy domain name so a little imagination is required and certain restrictions on names apply, particularly to the ".com.au" domains. Redfox can register a domain name for you.
Most small business website hosting requirements fit into the $195 to $295 per year price bracket depending on the size and technology required for your site.
Web Design and Development
Websites vary considerably in size and complexity and so does the time and therefore cost to build them. In a nutshell, you are paying for the time involved in building the site and the level of expertise required to make it work. Most of the websites we design cost between $2500 and $9500 for a custom website and most of these use a content management system to make the sites work as required.
If you are after a simple website, let us know your requirements and we will give you some options that will get your business online quickly and on budget. Some websites can be built for as little as $800 using professionally-designed templates.

The Internet is a dynamic environment and stale web sites just get passed over. Your site needs to change regularly to keep visitors coming back. Two options are:
- We build a database driven site where you can edit your own content. Initially more expensive but free of any ongoing maintenance costs. This option is best for medium to larger websites or any website where content is to change regularly.
- Our experts perform any changes based on an hourly rate.
