Website development prices

Wonder what the prices are for creating websites in Ukraine? The cost of developing a website based on a template or individually on a turnkey basis – in this article, we analyze how much it costs to create a website and how the price for development is formed in various web studios.


Many people are still in the process of creating a website with something unclear. In their imagination, a reclusive bearded programmer immediately appears, who uses code to create programs that are incomprehensible to humans. However, website development is far from just programming. This is a complex process that includes many stages, each of which includes the cost of the site.

The cost of the site consists of costs at the following stage:

  • buying a domain. A domain is a unique name that will appear in the address bar when you go to a site. The price of the domain depends on the chosen registration zone and starts from UAH 200 per year. On average, the cost of renting a domain name is UAH 450/year.
  • Hosting services. Hosting functions as a remote server on which the site is located and provides round-the-clock access to your resource. The cost of hosting is from UAH 120 per month.
  • License for CMS. If you plan to make changes to the site yourself in the future without the help of a developer, you may be more comfortable using a dedicated content management system (WordPress, Opencart, Shopify) . Some cms and modules for advanced work with them are free, while others are paid. The cost of cms – from 0 to 25,000 hryvnias.
  • preparation of the technical task. The technical task is necessary in order to translate the customer’s idea into a real project as accurately as possible. It should contain the most accurate list of future works, terms and cost of their implementation. The cost is from 0 to 5,000 hryvnias.
  • Design development. To create a site, you need to develop its design – a visual layout that will demonstrate how your project will look on different devices. The services of a web designer can be calculated both by the hour and by the cost of each of the created pages – from UAH 500 per page.
  • site layout. After the designer prepares the layout, the developer works to create the code that web browsers will use to recognize and render your site properly. The price of layout in Ukraine: UAH 800-5000 per page, depending on the complexity of the design.
  • Site programming. In addition to a pleasant visual appearance, additional functionality is required for the full operation of the site – sending applications, pop-up windows, sorting or searching for products. All this is achieved with the help of programming, the price of which starts at UAH 370/hour.
  • filling with content. The services of a good copywriter who will help write an interesting and unique text for your site will cost from UAH 150 for 1000 characters without spaces.
  • site support and promotion. For development, you need to work on the project even after its completion: filling the blog, updating information, selecting donors to buy links, Consulting and maintaining the site will cost you from 400 UAH/hour.

Prices for creating sites depending on the type

Depending on the purpose and content of the sites, several main types of Internet projects are distinguished: corporate sites, business card sites, online stores, information portals, landing pages, etc. Prices for creating such sites may vary depending on the type of resource and developer.

The simplest and therefore most affordable option is landing pages or one-page business card sites. They are designed to tell as briefly as possible about the company or its products in order to attract the attention of users. Most of such projects are quite easily and quickly implemented, and cost from $150.

A multi-page corporate site will cost you more, as the cost is often calculated separately for each page. Also, the price of development will be affected by the complexity of the functionality required by the customer – search, product filtering, feedback form and much more. The minimum cost of developing such a project is $500.

Large online stores and online services are considered the most expensive to implement. They involve a large number of pages, filling with thousands of products and complex integration of services. The cost of developing an online service can start at $2,000 or more.

Target or single page site + $
Site card + $
Corporate site + $
Site directory (without shopping cart) + $
Online store + $

Landing page development cost

A landing page is a one-page site designed to encourage visitors to take a specific targeted action (buy a product, sign up for a course, leave your number, etc.). All the content of the site is placed on one page, which the user views by scrolling down without going to other pages. Therefore, unlike complex multi-page projects, the development of a landing page takes no more than a week on average and costs from UAH 6,000.

This type of site can be implemented using ready-made solutions (Tilda, Wix, Elementor) or on a CMS system (WordPress, OpenCart, Shopify). If the customer chooses a paid cms or modules for advanced work in the administrative panel (online payment, display and saving of leads in the administrative panel, integration with CRM, etc.), then the cost of development may increase several times.

The cost of developing a corporate website

The purpose of creating a corporate website is to familiarize users with the company as best as possible, present products or services, and attract new customers. It can be considered a modern representation of a legal entity on the Internet, which allows you to better present yourself and increase trust on the part of the target audience.
In order to fully fulfill its tasks, a corporate website must have well-thought-out functionality, contain the necessary amount of information, be adapted for mobile devices, load quickly and have a pleasant visual design. All this is not cheap, so the cost of developing a corporate website starts at UAH 18,000.

The price of creating an online store

The online store is a 24/7 showcase for your business. Its creation allows you to open new sales markets and attract more users who will be able to buy your goods via the Internet. E-commerce projects such as online stores can be created both on the basis of CMS systems (OpenCart, Shopify, WordPress) and from scratch. The price of a small online store based on a template (without complex product filtering, integration with delivery or accounting systems) can start from UAH 20,000 and will not take much time. Whereas the cost of an online store with thousands of products and a unique design starts at UAH 80,000, and the development itself takes more than 2 months. A more detailed breakdown of prices for the development of online stores can be viewed in the table below:

Cost of website development on CMS WordPress

The free CMS WordPress appeared on the market back in 2003 and since then has become one of the most popular engines for website development. It won the love of users and developers due to its convenience and ease of administration and promotion. Because of this, WordPress is often chosen to create different types of sites: news and personal blogs, business card sites, and even online stores.

What is the cost of developing a site on CMS WordPress? To answer this question, you need to understand what type of site you need, what content, functionality and design it has. Each site is an individual project, the cost of which is calculated for each case separately. In addition, it is worth considering that the prices for the same project can be radically different from different contractors.

Price information portal

Your own website is a modern business card, because more and more people use the Internet to search for information. So if you can’t be found online, to many you don’t exist and can’t be contacted. Your site works even when you sleep: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This means you are available to your potential customers 24/7.

You can order site development on a ready-made CMS system (WordPress), which offers an easy-to-use interface, or on a framework if your plan requires something large-scale and unusual.

For a classic site designed for publishing news with a visit of no more than 5,000 people per day, you can choose a CMS. However, if you are aiming to attract a large number of visitors, it is better to prefer development from scratch on a framework. Below is a table of costs for the development of an information site.

Project type On ready-made CMS From scratch
News site + $ + $
Urban + $ + $
Educational + $ + $
State + $ + $
Corporate + $ + $
Custom + $ + $

A news site is a publication that specializes in publishing news or materials on a certain topic. If you decide to create such a portal, carefully consider what format it should have. It can be a news aggregator that will collect data from various sources and highlight it, or a platform where your editors can publish unique text themselves. The development of such a project involves the creation of a convenient and reliable site or program capable of withstanding a large influx of users.


The price is a section that we always check before ordering any service. Depending on the type of services, the price range can be quite wide. How much does it cost to create a website in Ukraine? The price of creating a site? The cost of developing a site from scratch? There is no unequivocal answer to these and other similar questions. This is due to the fact that each web project is unique – it has its own nuances, difficulties and set goals, from which the cost of the finished product is calculated.

Please note that the price will depend on the specifics of the project. You need to think through all the details of the future project and decide which option and site management system to choose: a ready-made template or individual turnkey development.

Development of a website based on a template from UAH 2,000. However, the price depends on:

  • template value;
  • paid or free site management system;
  • terms of execution;
  • and others.

The site with turnkey programming has a number of advantages, the price of which starts from UAH 25,000. Yes, it is not a cheap investment, but by ordering such a service, you will receive an individual design, programming according to your TK, no restrictions and, in general, a full range of necessary services.


A turnkey site is a fully functional site with everything you need to get up and running. With it, you don’t have to worry about the development or design yourself, because the development of the site structure, market analysis, design creation, programming, optimization, testing is done by a team of specialists. After you order the service and the specialists begin to perform the assigned tasks, you will receive a ready-made web project with a login and password from it.

The cost of turnkey website development in Ukraine depends on many individual factors, including the scale of the project.

Type of turnkey site Price, UAH Terms
For small business + from 10 business days
For medium-sized businesses + from 1 to 3 months
For big business + from 3 months to 1 year

Stages of site development and their cost

The average cost of creating a website in Ukraine ranges from $1,500 to $25,000. This is quite a wide range. It goes without saying that there are various factors that affect the final cost of website development.

This includes the time spent, the number of specialists involved, as well as the required pages for the site, features, design, etc. So, how much does a detailed website design cost? Let’s figure it out.

Development of site strategy

One of the first things is to prepare a site strategy. A strategy is a plan of action designed to achieve a common goal. Clearly set goals will help you create a good site design, which, in turn, will contribute to the fulfillment of your main mission – to attract the maximum number of potential customers and receive income. Specialists study the market, analyze competitors, determine the target client, its CJM and adapt UTP to today’s realities. The main tasks of strategy development are:

  • definition of business goals;
  • analysis of the market and competitors;
  • definition of the target audience, its needs and desires;
  • creating a unique sales offer;
  • SEO at the stage of development and the strategy of the site entering the market;
  • development of sketches, concept and main ideas of the site;
  • plan for promoting the web resource;
  • determining the most effective promotion methods.

After the strategy is ready, the designer can start working on the layout of the project and choose a corporate color scheme, create a unique interface and reflect the company’s style. The cost of developing a website strategy starts at $2800 and takes from 7 working days.

UI/UX Design

A stunning website design is the key to the success of your project. Simply put, UI/UX design plays a very important role in achieving the goal of your website. You are unlikely to find a poorly designed but successful product, or vice versa. Most users are used to visually evaluating something before making further decisions. A good website design is exactly what attracts attention and motivates potential customers to take action.

What does it take to create an attractive website and impress potential customers?

  1. Development of the framework. A specialist creates a standard set of design and placement of elements on your future site, which can be adjusted according to your needs. The development of this stage is from 5 to 20 working days.
  2. Prototype. A UI/UX designer creates the final interface of the project and demonstrates how the website will look on different devices.

The above elements allow you to achieve efficiency and adjust every detail of the project as needed. The average cost of creating a website design in Ukraine ranges from $2,500 to $10,000 and takes 80 to 400 hours.

Again, the final time and cost of creating a UI/UX design depends on your requirements. This is the complexity of the animation, the number of pages, etc.

Interface Development

The interface is everything that visitors can see and interact with on your site. What could previously be seen on designer mockups, developers turn into a ready-to-use product that works in any browsers. All fields, buttons, blocks become clickable, so users can easily manage them.
Quality engineers are involved in the project from this stage and continue to work on it until the final release. These specialists test the functionality of the site, look for possible errors and generally analyze the user interface.
The factors affecting the cost at this stage include the complexity of the animation, the number of possibilities of the future site, the time spent, the development of functionality, etc.
The cost of Front-End development in Ukraine can take an average of 120 to 600 hours and will cost from $1,800 to $15,000.

Internal Development

Backend development is what the user doesn’t see on the website. This stage focuses more on how the website works than how it looks. This includes user authentication, network and hosting settings, database interactions, and everything else that happens behind the scenes of a website.

For example, when registering on the platform, customers must fill in all the fields and enter the necessary data. In order for this information to be moved to the server and processed, Back-End development is required.

The cost of site development at this stage is influenced by:

  • integration with third-party services;
  • setting of non-standard data processing (for example, audio/video);
  • processing of complex requests.

Backend development takes between 120 and 600 man hours and costs between $4,000 and $25,000.

Configuring the admin panel (CMS)

A content management system allows you to create and manage website content. You can correct an error in the text, add new products, delete a paragraph yourself, without the help of developers. The admin panel provides an opportunity to edit, manage and maintain existing site pages in a single interface, without requiring special technical knowledge. There are many free CMSs, but they can be limited in functionality, and most importantly – be insecure.

The admin panel significantly reduces site maintenance costs. You can still use the services of a web developer to customize your site. But with a CMS, you can publish and modify content yourself. Another advantage of a CMS is that it allows for collaboration. Multiple users within an organization can create and publish content. The CMS user interface is usually browser-based, so any number of users can access the system from anywhere.

The cost of CMS development in Ukraine varies from $3,000 to $9,000, which takes 60 to 180 hours of work.

The price of a turnkey site depending on the stage

Building a website consists of several steps that we should first analyze before delving into the actual costs. Only after we understand what elements go into building a website can we determine their value. In general, the following development prices can be distinguished:

Development stage Time spent Minimum price Max price
Analytics and Strategy 80-360 hours $ $
UI/UX design 80-400 hours $ $
Development of the interface 120-600 hours $ $
Internal development 120-600 hours $ $
Total number 175-760 hours $ $

The exact cost will depend on your business requirements and the complexity of the project, as well as additional changes, new tasks and the need for editing. To get detailed information and discuss the project, contact us for a consultation.

Pay-per-click (PPC) advertising

PPC advertising is a popular marketing service that improves your visibility in search results through paid advertising. You pay a provider, such as Google, for each click on an ad that advertises your online presence. Basically, you are buying traffic to your site.

This is a good way to invest because you pay for real conversions of users who click on your ad and view the products you offer.

To set up an advertising campaign, you need to enter all the necessary data about the site, services and products. Next, you define the keywords for your PPC campaign. This ensures that your ads will always appear in search results when a user searches with relevant keywords.

When customers enter product-related queries into the search bar, they are presented with a list of sites that offer the products they are looking for. The higher your website ranks in search results, the more traffic you can attract.

Costs for search engine optimization depend on the niche, the number of key queries, the amount of work and range from $300 to $1,500 per month.


Creating content is an important part of marketing. People won’t learn about your company when browsing the web unless you create content. Any website has a text with written keywords that have a positive effect on the optimization of the project and determine the place of the page in the output.

Each piece of text is an opportunity for the company to attract potential customers. Professional copywriters write content that encourages readers to take action, taking into account the specifics of the niche in which the site operates. Quality text with relevant keywords can rank high in search results if it matches the search query.

Depending on the scope and complexity of the work, the price per article can range from $50 to $300.

Social Media Marketing (SMM)

Social media marketing focuses on selling goods and services on a variety of platforms. Social media has been very influential lately, so SMM is a good opportunity to increase your online presence.

Thanks to social media marketing, your product will be popularized, which will ultimately lead to more conversions and company profits. Using SMM is a great way to communicate with an audience that can help determine your product’s strengths and weaknesses.

The most influential factors in social media marketing spend are the number of social networks, which can range from one to five, and desired advertising spend. In general, the cost of social media marketing ranges from $400 to $20,000 per month.

Website development, price from various contractors

Any contractor you choose can create a personal blog or business project. The cost of services is calculated individually, depending on the complexity of the project and the type of contractor you will work with.

Freelancers are remote workers who can be hired for various projects. There are many sites where you can find qualified professionals. Such a person is independently engaged in the creation of a site, both in design and in programming. Freelancers offer affordable rates, but it is worth understanding that not everyone is an expert in their field. Since a freelancer works individually, there is a risk of unexpected situations where your project may remain unfinished.

Digital Agency is a company that creates corporate and simple websites. Such a company takes responsibility for the further management of the project, which includes marketing, advertising and branding. Unlike freelancers, where one person works, Digital Agency provides you with a whole team of highly qualified specialists in various fields.

The specialized company deals with complex web projects and mobile applications. The company employs a team of qualified professionals who will implement any of your ideas and provide support even after the site implementation is complete.

Top-10 web studios are among the most qualified and at the same time expensive development companies. This list is determined by several independent rating agencies, based on factors such as work in the international market, experienced specialists in the staff and others.
