Modern website builders no longer consider just single-page projects as online small business websites, like it was earlier. Today’s corporate site is an Internet project counting from 3 to 7 pages on average. Such business websites are mainly created for making the beautiful package for products or services provided by specific companies. The other purpose of small business websites is making connections with new customers and keeping in touch with the existing ones.
Why You Might Need a Small Business Site?
The purpose of building website for small business is to present your store, company, product, or service briefly and concisely on the net. There is no necessity to immediately scale it to the corporate portal. Initially, it is enough to build a website to display basic information about your company.
What’s inside? A short description revealing types of goods or services provided by your brand, your price list, location map and contact information. This is the minimum of the necessary points to indicate on a typical small business website.
The possibilities of a business site are not limited to providing information. With the help of small business websites, you can carry out advertising campaigns and even sell some banner ads placement. This will bring you additional profit as long as your resource gets higher attendance.
Most often the structure of the typical small business website comprises the following sections: Home, News, About Us (About Company), Price (Goods/Services), Gallery (Portfolio), Contacts (How to find us).

European and American prices start from 700-1000 dollars and reach tens of thousands of dollars growing to the nth degree.

Stages of creating a website for small business
Initially, the website builder outlines the structure, then makes the prototype, the mockup layout, pages design and finally creates the fully operating version. Each stage is coordinated with the customer. After completion, the business website is tested and transferred to the server.
Adequate Cost of Hosting and Domain
Go to one of the popular domain providers, type the domain name and purchase it if it is available. The process is easy as ABC, but there is a significant difference in prices. .com names are usually quite expensive. You will be able to buy it from NameCheap for $10.69 and from GoDaddy for $12.99 on average.
The prices for other top level domains like .org,.net, .info, .guru, .agency may be lower or even higher than .com. You should pay attention to both the registration fee and the renewal fee which may increase. E.g. if we take a .guru domain name on GoDaddy, it may be cheaper for registration (around $30), but more costly after the yearly renewal ($40).
You may also purchase domain names on auction which works like eBay where the highest bidder gets the deal. Some domains may be on sale for a fixed price.
As soon as you select the domain, you are supposed to acquire web hosting. Web hosting prices might be super cheap (about 10 USD per month), quite affordable (20 USD) or more expensive (hosting with specific security and capacity requirements).
Cheap hosting is often shared hosting which will keep your website on the same server with other websites. Among renowned companies that provide affordable shared hosting are InMotion, GoDaddy, SiteGround, Bluehost and their affiliates.
The prices increase when you look for hosting able to run WordPress business websites. The most popular services offering hosting for WordPress are DreamHost, WP Engine, Pagely and Synthesis. The hosting fee will range from $20-$50 and reach around $400. Some hosting providers propose bonus services for the security issues, backups, and speed increase.
What’s great about WordPress except for popular and user-friendly admin panel, is that it offers the vast variety of really attractive themes at quite affordable prices. You may select the beautiful ready-made WP template for your future corporate website.
There are free and premium WP templates on the web. I would recommend paying for better themes featuring the more professional look and feel of your upcoming web page.
