Your website is one of the most important investments you will make for your business.
It’s your digital billboard, your living business card, and your customer’s first impression of your company. When you partner with Moss Web Works, we work to enhance your business, not just build a brochure.
A new website starts at $2,000 and goes up from there, depending on the number pages you want and the desired functionality. Moss Web Works does more than just create a website. We will consult with you to understand your business goals, and how to best support them online. Included in our web development services:
- Consult on and recommend website features

You will need…
A Domain Name (yourcompany.com)
You will purchase your own domain name, which costs from $10 to $40 per year, paid directly to the registrar. Moss Web Works recommends A2 Hosting which provides free domain registration with a hosting account. It also gives you a complimentary SSL certificate for your website.
A Web Hosting Account
A web hosting account is where your website files are stored. They also can provide email boxes for your business with the same domain name, such as email@example.com. Web Hosting plans usually start around $7.00/month and go up from there, depending on the capacity you need for your website. Again, we recommend A2 Hosting which has excellent support, provides free domain registration for one year, and a complimentary SSL certificate.
Why doesn’t Moss Web Works host websites? Even though we’re sure you’ll love our services, we don’t want you to feel tied to any one web developer for support. That’s why we encourage you to sign up for and own your hosting account. That way, no matter whom you work with, you can always access your host and get support.
Website Maintenance, Changes, and Ongoing Support
It doesn’t help your business to create a website and then forget about it. You must update the software and plugins regularly for security, and keep your content fresh to obtain and retain new customers! Moss Web Works provides a monthly maintenance program to help you with this.
Moss Web Works can assist with small changes and edits to your existing website, troubleshooting issues, or small projects per your company needs. Our hourly rate is currently $120/hour with a minimum charge of one hour.
Your website is your first impression. It’s the first thing a potential customer will encounter when researching your business, and you want to do it right. It might be tempting to have your sister’s neighbor’s kid design the site for you for a hundred bucks, but do you really want to take that gamble? Hire a professional.
