How much does a custom designed website cost?

The fee structure is as follows. There will be a basic $150 + applicable taxes admin fee for each website we design. In addition we charge $150 + applicable taxes for each page designed. By definition, a page is a section of a website, so the price of a website depends solely on how many sections, or pages, you want it. For example, if you wanted a 'welcome page', and a linked gallery page, you would pay $450 + applicable taxes for your site.

Please note that you must provide our web designer with photos and text. You will need to have an idea of what theme you wish your site to have. If you wish for our web designer to provide additional consulting services additional charges will apply at the cost of $70.00 per hour.

What are the benefits of having my own web page?

Your own website creates a significant marketing opportunity for you. Increase your web presence and attract more visitors to your B & B! With descriptive text, and engaging photos you can highlight your properties key features. We will work with you to choose a layout and design that will compliment your B & B.

Can you design a logo for my Bed and Breakfast and integrate it into my site?

We do not design logos or make custom graphics from scratch, other than decorative images for links. If you have a logo already, we can incorporate it into the site design; just send us a high-quality copy.

Who creates the text (descriptions, etc) on the site?

You are required to provide us with all text for description areas and photo captions. After all, you are the best judge of how you'd like to present your B&B business to potential guests.

What about updating a custom designed site?

If you or someone you know has some HTML knowledge, you can update your site yourself using FTP.

In order to have FTP access to your site, you need the following information:

FTP Site: ftp.bbcanada.com
FTP Username: (your subscriber number, example: 1234)
FTP Password: (your bbdug password all in upper case, example: ASDZXC)

Simply configure your FTP program with this information and you will have immediate access to your website.

If you wish us to perform your update, there will be a charge, which will vary depending on the extent of the update required:

  • 1 - 2 changes will cost $20.00 + applicable taxes.
  • 3 - 4 changes will cost $25.00 + applicable taxes.
  • 5 - 6 changes will cost $30.00 + applicable taxes.
  • Any more changes will be quoted upon request.

Examples of a change are: changing a photo, removing a block of text, pasting in new text, adding an email address, etc.

Please note: update fees do not cover the cost of a redesign if you later request one. Redesigns (in essence, changing your layout entirely) are subject to another $150 + applicable taxes per page fee.

To inquire about the cost of a particular update, send an email to info@bbcanada.com detailing your request.

I'd like to start out with one page for now; can I add to it later?

Yes, absolutely. If you decide later on that you'd like to add another section to your one page site, all you have to do is pay another $150 + applicable taxes and send us the material for the addition.
