Example If you'd like me to create a Website for you then I'm more than happy to discuss your needs. I specialise in Websites for individuals and small business and believe in charging a fair price. I offer three Website categories to suit most requirements, these are as follows:

Designing with Standards

The Websites I create are standards compliant, that is to say they conform to the guidelines set out by the W3C for HTML correctness and accessibility. Following the Valid XHTML link on each page will check the page for validity, valid pages will return a Passed validation result. Valid XHTML Valid CSS

Costs involved

I've laid out my three Website categories in the table below. In addition to the cost of development there are optional costs such as hosting and domain charges. Usually the former is free as most ISPs will give you free Webspace for hosting purposes as part of their monthly fee. The latter depends on if you actually need a domain or not, either way I suggest you read my guide.

Other things to consider

While you're thinking about a Website you may also wish to think about a logo. If you don't already have a logo then now is the ideal time to design one since it can be incorporated into your Website. You should consider updates, how are you going to keep your Website current? A Website should be updated as often as possible to keep it fresh.
