There are two mandatory costs:

  1. Annual Domain registration - Just like with a phone number, the annual fee ‘reserves’ a domain name for you. But this doesn’t make it accessible on-line.
  2. Web Hosting - Website files must be stored on a server to be accessed by the public. You need to pay for usage of server and bandwidth. This fee is known as web hosting.

 

Of course you can choose to invest more money to enhance your website, although these services/costs are optional:

  • Data encryption via Secure Socket Layer (SSL)
  • Website promotional campaigns
  • Website content update services
  • Website dedicated ip address
  • Website security monitoring services
  • Website malware removal services
  • Regular website backup services
  • Transaction fee paid to payment gateway provider

The actual cost of these services depends on your detail requirements. Please feel free to contact us if you need any help.
