Nowadays the question is how much is the cost of a Website Design? The cost of designing and hosting a website in Uganda is surrounded by a lot of myths, some of which are truly humiliating to make reference to. To demonstrate my case, as of late I was experiencing it in my Whatsapp group messages when I arrived at a heated debate about the cost of a website design. So these colleagues were contending about how it’s unrealistic or realistic to design and host a website in Uganda at a flat fee of 50 dollars (around 200k). To make it understood, this happened after a specific freelance chap was advancing his web designing and hosting packages to his colleges
This is a collective question we have been receiving from people who intend to own websites in Uganda. Before thinking of designing a website for your company, it is important to know the steps and costs involved throughout the whole process. In this write-up, I will walk you through the simple breakdown of the cost of website design, developing, and hosting a website in Uganda.
The breakdown I’m giving here is affected by my own insight as a Ugandan web designer who has been in the website development field for more than 5 years, and my associations with first-rate website specialists in the Ugandan website design industry.
The internet has a population of 4.2 billion users worldwide, and of these, Uganda has 20 million internet users according to the information on Uganda’s Ministry of ICT website. If you own any business, whether big or small, it is high time you get your business online, because any business that does not online does not sell.
