How much do you charge to build a website?
The cost of our websites varies widely. Most range between $3000 and $10,000. If you have no money in your budget for a custom website solution, we may be able to steer you in a do-it-yourself direction where you can save money. However you will have to spend time and energy in a steep learning curve.

Yes. At Max Height Web Solutions, we partner with our clients. We become your IT (Internet Technology) department. We not only design and develop your website, we also host, manage and maintain it. We are not a “build it and abandon you” type of web development agency. We are in this for YOUR success as well as our own. Your monthly fee will vary depending on the type of website you need. Most of our web hosting and maintenance plans range between $100/mo and $600/mo.
What’s the difference between website design and website development?
There is a lot of confusion and blending of these two terms.
Website design is the art of designing the visual appearance of a website.
Website development, is the building or coding of the website. This includes installing it on a server, linking all the pages together, creating all the functionality so that everything works together, optimizing it for mobile devices, etc...
Will people be able to find my website on a Google search?
Yes! Your website will be listed with Google, Yahoo and Bing search engines. The better question is: “For what KEYWORD(S) will my site appear on the first page?”This involves a technique called SEO (search engine optimization). Most good and relevant keywords have VERY high competition from very large companies who spend thousands of dollars monthly to assure their brand stays on the first page. There are some hidden “gems”, however, that can be uncovered with the right kind of keyword research.
What is “Digital Marketing”?
The process of marketing and promoting a business on the internet. There are several components which make up an effective digital marketing strategy: website, email list, blog, SEO, social media, paid ads.
