How Much Does a Website Cost in Dubai
At Websima DMCC, we design websites with creativity. Knowing what your company needs is very important for us to examine the cost. Let’s try to understand the website cost in Dubai/UAE in this article!
Imagine that you are willing to buy a brand-new car in Dubai. Are you going to buy a 40,000 AED Toyota? Or a 3 Series BMW with a budget of around 150,000 AED?
There is no limit; you can even go for a more luxurious car at the cost of 2 Million AED!!! So depending on your demand, there is a supply in the market. Cost of a website is almost the same. From start-ups, eCommerce and new companies to more prominent organizations, Websima DMCC is committed to providing a world-class website given your needs and budget. Subject to the many considerations and characteristics, the price would be different. It can be from 5,000 AED up to 200,000 AED.
Here are some factors to be considered for the cost of a new website in Dubai:
- How many pages do you need on your website?
- What is your design criteria for your website?
- What features you need on your website?
- How many visitors do you expect to have on your website?
- Do you like to have a new website from scratch, or you want to use a template? (we will explain it later in this article)
After reading this article, you would answer all of these questions and narrow down the answer to the main question: How much my website will cost in Dubai?
How many pages do you need on your website?
The first question is, what does the size of my website would be? If your website is a simple company website, there will be around 5 to 15 pages only, that will cost you less than an eCommerce website which will have pages for all the products and services. An eCommerce website may include up to 50,000 pages, and that will change the price significantly. So, depending on your website’s size, a simple website can be from 5,000 AED to 40,000 AED, and a website with a lot of pages may cost you from 15,000 AED up to 200,000 AED.
What is your design criteria for your website?
If you are a perfectionist person in your job, then you need to have a professional designer to design your website. Fortunately, this service is provided at Websima DMCC. We have a range of professional designers to give you the sketch of your website before we go through the coding. That will guarantee your satisfaction, though it comes with a cost. A design sketch is always included in our prices because we never invest in a project which may fail!
What features you need on your website?
You have to think about this question from the beginning. Because if you change your features later, your cost may vary significantly. For example, if you want an eCommerce web design, then you need, payment gateway, wishlist, registration, products comparison, Shopping basket, support and so on.
The price of the explained website would be different from a Corporate website with a “Contact us” and “About Us” pages only. Sometimes, a more complicated feature might be required on a website. In this case, the price of the website would go higher again. In Dubai, there are good companies which are capable
of creating features but be careful of freelancers. They usually do not create it for you; instead, they use publicly available templates, which won’t fit your project.
How many visitors do you expect to have on your website?
Depending on how many visitors you expect, type of coding and server may differ. For example, for some government services, which may get more than million visitors per day, the coding and the cost would be much higher than a typical eCommerce website which expects to have thousands of visitors per day. Before starting the project, knowing your targeting numbers is essential to have an accurate estimation of the price.
Do you like to have a new website from scratch, or you want to use a template?
I am sure you have seen some unbelievable prices for your website, mostly from freelancers. They offer you a company website even with 1000 AED! Or an eCommerce website with 5,000 AED! You should know these prices are too good to be true!
Remember, they always use themes and templates to create your website. They do not have support after launching your website. They do not care about your SEO (Search Engine Optimization) standards and bring you a low score in SEO.
Bear in mind that if you get a cheap website, you are wasting your time and money at the same time. Because after some time, you realize you need to consider redesigning your website again, and this time you know that a cheap website wouldn’t work for you. So, our suggestion is to invest smartly from the beginning.
At Websima DMCC, we create websites from scratch. We do coding for your pages to avoid low-speed-loading and to enhance your website performance. We also consider your website SEO since the first day.
Finally, the prices!
You should know by now that based on what we have explained, the price range of a new website can vary from 1000 AED up to 200,000 AED. But we categorize it for you so you can find out your website range. Let’s remove freelancers from our list as we don’t recommend dealing with them at any price.
• Company Website
Depending on the features and size of the website, it can be from 4,000 AED up to 30,000 AED
• Normal eCommerce Website
A typical eCommerce website with basic features would cost you from 7,000 AED up to 50,000 AED. You can check the “eCommerce Website Cost in Dubai/UAE” for more details.
• More complicated eCommerce
An eCommerce website with unique features like creating designed receipt, or inventory management may cost you from 30,000 AED up to 80,000 AED
• A complicated website
If you want to create AMAZON number 2, that would be a different story. There will be lots of complicated features and functions on the website. Such a website would cost you from 100,000 AED up to infinity!
Bear in mind that Dubai is the middle east hub, and it has an extremely competitive market. If you are willing to succeed here, you need to have a world-class website. The more you invest in this part, the more you benefit later.
