Stage 1: Setting up your domain name involves reserving a unique web address or domain (e.g., www.yourbusinessname.com.au). This is done through a public registry service, and the cost is typically from $15 – $30 annually.
Stage 2: Designing the website involves creating graphics, links, contents, and codes, so you have web pages that look professional when you see the site on the computer. This can cost from $1000 to $5000 or even more.
Stage 3: Hosting your designed website on a cloud web hosting server (preferably in Australia) typically will cost you around $10 – $50 per month. High performance and reliability are a must for this service.
Stage 4: Creating custom email addresses for your business (firstname.lastname@example.org) elevates professional reputation. Setting up custom email addresses can cost anywhere between $0-$20 per month, depending on your requirements.
Stage 5: Maintaining the website in terms of updating plugins and platforms, setting up backups, and other technical tasks is a must to keep your website secure and running smoothly.
Stage 6: Integrating your website to your social media and other business needs by developing an easy to use and interactive content management system. This usually depends on the platform you use for your website.
