How Much Does A Website Cost From Strobe?

At Strobe we simply charge for our time. We'll provide a no obligation proposal prior to you agreeing to any work, listing the time required to develop the website, and all anticipated charges. How much any one website costs will depend on many factors such as complexity, size, features and capability. Typical client budgets range from £350 to £2,000 or more.

With all websites we give one year's free hosting on our dedicated webserver, one free .co.uk or .com domain name, and unlimited free email setup. After the year customers can choose to either host the website and domain themselves, in which case we'll provide you with everything without charge or exit fees, or we are very happy to continue hosting for a reasonable fee. We try to build an ongoing relationship with our customers, to aid the development of their business online over time.
