The cost of website design and website development in Singapore can range from $1,000 to $5,000 for a 10 pages site for a start. You may ask, why such big difference in the pricing?
There is different ways of doing up a website. You may get a student to do it for $1,000 or get a professional to do it at almost four times the pricing. You can even get a website done at less than $50 if you do it yourself.
