Compare Web Design & Hosting Prices

SUTTONNet custom-builds each site based on extensive client consultation. We can't provide definitive quotes without talking with you in detail about your requirements.

Here we show you our hosting prices, minimum prices for SUTTONNet websites and what you get for your $. Check out the standard inclusions for SUTTONNet websites before you jump into the pricelist.

There's also a form at the end of this page, designed to help you:

  1. explore what you need from your new website. You can print or save the completed form for your own use;
  2. request a quote from SUTTONNet (optional).
  • Cost vs service

    How can we compare web development and webhosting value? There are few standards or even standard definitions.

    Read below what's included in a typical SUTTONNet website development project. If something is missing that you need, ask us.

    Some features touted by web designers don't mean much; or they are so fundamental so that no competent developer would omit them.

    Eg 'We submit your website to search engines FREE'. That's a bit like advertising a car for sale 'with FREE ignition'.

    Conversely, important items such as ongoing support might be missing from a very cheap quote. Make sure that you access the technical knowhow your business needs to succeed online.

    When upgrading from an older website, SUTTONNet ensures that webpages are redirected correctly so that the site doesn't lose its search engine rankings. These can take weeks or months to recover, if redirection isn't done right.

  • Initial vs ongoing

    Check ongoing costs & service: webhosting, email hosting (does the webhost offer own-domain email hosting?), website or hosting support, software licences & essential software updates. Watch out for hidden extras: eg some ecommerce systems may charge a percentage fee per sale.

    Service levels - You can find cheaper alternatives than our fully managed webhosting with 24/7 support. But if your website's server goes down on a Saturday night, who will fix it and when? Who will install software upgrades, and what will they charge you?

    Search engine rankings - By starting out right with a well built website and well written webpage content, many businesses don't need to budget for exorbitant ongoing search engine optimisation (SEO) costs. Very few SUTTONNet clients have needed digital marketing specialists.

    Longevity - A SUTTONNet website is built to last. You can add features over time: eg more webpages, ecommerce, new styling to touch up the website's appearance. That's simpler and cheaper than creating an all-new website design every few years.
