One of the most common questions a website development company in Dubai receives is how much does it cost to build a new website in Dubai or the UAE? While this is not an impossible question, it’s certainly a difficult one as there are several variables involved that change the price of a website in Dubai.
The more important question to ask yourself when building a website is ‘What do I want to get out of my website?’
Are you looking to:
Showcase your work
Build your credibility
Generate Traffic or
Sell your products online
Once you understand exactly what you need, it’ll be easier to design and build a website that can achieve these goals.
Some other factors that affect the price of a website in Dubai
The size of the website i.e. The number of pages on the website.
The number and types of features it’ll have
The expected number of users
The content management system.
Marketing features e.g. CRM, Email Marketing, etc.
Content: will you provide the content, or will you require the agency to do so?
As a result of these key elements, the price of the website as well as the length of time it’ll take to build varies. A web development agency will help you determine what is best for your business requirements and budget.
These are some examples of typical websites and their approximate costs:
Basic corporate websites in Dubai
Also, basic corporate websites are generally used when a company is just recently established and doesn’t yet have the budget for something more extensive. In such cases, the website can be around 5 – 10 pages long and very simple in terms of features and functionality. An approx. figure for this basic corporate site, can be between AED 15,000 – 30,000 with expected delivery in less than 2 or 3 weeks.
Medium corporate sites in Dubai
These types of sites depend again on some of the factors mentioned above, but for a 10 – 30-page website expect to pay around AED 35,000 – 60,000 with expected delivery within 4 to 6 weeks as these websites take slightly longer to design and build.
Large corporate sites in Dubai
The bigger the websites get, the more interactive and complicated they become; so, for a larger website more functions and interactivity, you are looking at upwards of AED 60,000
E-commerce sites in Dubai
For e-commerce sites, the more complex they are, and the more products are required, the more expensive they are so for example if you are looking to build a website similar to Amazon, you may need to invest a lot more money to build it, anywhere from AED 30,000 to AED 200,000 dependent on features and license requirements.
If you are considering building a website, it’s advisable to speak with an expert to figure out exactly what you need and just how it can work.
