How much should a website cost in New Zealand? That’s a question that many Kiwis ask themselves when they want to create an online presence for their business, hobby, or personal brand. The answer is not so simple, because there are many factors that affect the price of a website, such as the design, the functionality, the content, and the maintenance.

To give you a rough idea, here are some average costs for different types of websites in New Zealand:

  1. A basic website with a few pages and simple features can cost between $500 and $1,000.


  2. A medium website with more pages and features, such as an image gallery, contact forms, Google map, SEO, website statistics etc. can cost between $1,000 and $2,500.


  3. A large website with advanced features, such as an e-commerce platform, a membership system, or a custom design, can cost between $2,500 and $10,000 or even more.

Of course, these are just estimates and the actual cost may vary depending on your specific needs and preferences. You may also need to pay for additional services, such as domain name registration, web hosting, SEO, or ongoing support.

The good news is that you don’t have to break the bank to get a quality website in New Zealand. There are many affordable options available for different budgets and goals. You can also save money by doing some of the work yourself, such as choosing a template, writing the content, or updating the website.

However, if you want to get the best results and avoid any headaches, it’s advisable to hire a professional web developer who can create a website that suits your needs and reflects your brand identity. A professional web developer will also ensure that your website is secure, fast, responsive, and user-friendly.

So how much should a website cost in New Zealand? The answer is: it depends. But whatever your budget is, you can find a solution that works for you. Just remember that a website is an investment that will pay off in the long run if done right.

The Soviet era Woodpecker. In July 1976, about 5 years after I gained my amateur radio licence there appeared on the shortwave (SW) bands, especially on 20 metres, a strange tap-tap-tap sound. It appeared quite randomly, at different times and frequencies and completely obliterated about 50 KHz of any SW
