Website Design Cost in Nigeria: How Much Does A Website Cost 2022

Cost of Building a website in Nigeria

How much does it cost to build a website is one of the frequent questions business owners and administrators who want create a website for their business or company. But unfortunately, there is no price tag for building a website, rather the cost of building a website is based on the purpose and functionality of the website. Summarily, the price current of building a website in Nigeria in 2022 is between N80, 000 and N5,000,000.

There are few factors that determine the cost of building a website. For the sake of this post, let’s look at just two:

  • Project scope (number of pages, functionality, complexity, etc.)
  • Type of website (startup website, corporate website, or e-commerce website)

To determine the cost of a website for our clients, we usually ask questions like: Who are your target customers? Who are your competitors? What’s your budget towards this project? What Impact do you want the website to have to your business? And so on.

Also, the cost of creating a website can vary based on demography or country. The cost designing a website in Nigeria will be different from US.

The cost of developing a site can also be determined based on who is handling the project. Are you hiring a freelancer, a junior developer, a senior developer, a designer & developer combined or a web design agency?

An agency is likely to charge higher than a freelancer. But price is not always the issue, but building a bsite that add value to your business and satisfies customers’ needs.

Note: A great website is not built at once, is a continuous process; there always need for improvement. At Palment, we usually advise our clients to start with few pages or products and improve on the long run.

One major mistake often made by entrepreneurs and startup founders is trying to build a complex website at once. Oftentimes, client does say something like: I want a website that looks exactly like company A or B, while such company’s website has existed for over a decade – it doesn’t work like that.

Just as Rome wasn’t built in a day, same goes to website design. You need to have all the pages or products at once, but you just have to start as soon as possible.

The real cost of building and owning a website can be determine by the following

  • Domain name extension (.com, net, .org, .ltd, .xyx)
  • Hosting package (Windows, Linux, etc)
  • Theme design, development & Customization
  • Development fee
  • Ongoing maintenance & update

Also, when planning of building a website for your brand, consider the following:

  • Do you want a custom website (code from scratch)? – Only experienced programmers can design and manage this type of website.
  • Do you want to use a Content Management System or online website builder? – These type of website are easy to edit and manage ( WordPress, SqureSpace and Wiz).
  • What features do you need NOW & LATER?
  • Want special features and functionality do you want your website to have?
