What are the monthly costs for a website?

A website can have various costs associated with it, from the hosting itself to the domain name and other costs depending on the choices you make. In this blog post, we want to take a look at what this all means and what you can consider when running your website.

The type of website

The cost of a website can vary greatly depending on the type of website you want to create or already have. A blog that you run as a hobby has different requirements than a project created in .NET for e-commerce. At MijnHostingPartner.nl, we have a suitable package for you for every budget, including the different ways in which a website is built. WordPress, for example, the most widely used content management system in the world, can run perfectly on an SSD hosting package. But it can also be hosted on a managed WordPress hosting package. More on these differences later in this article.

So take a look at the requirements and usage of your website and make a note of them to find a suitable package. Or start a chat with one of our colleagues right away to get advice.

The hosting package

Hosting is one of the main costs of running a website. The costs vary depending on the type of hosting you choose and where your website runs.

SSD hosting: SSD stands for Solid State Drive and offers significantly faster loading times and better performance compared to conventional hard disks (HDD). SSD hosting is ideal for small to medium sized websites that require speed and reliability. Our SSD hosting packages start at a competitive price per month and offer several features, including 25 GB of storage space, unlimited bandwidth and free SSL certificates.

Complete packages: Our total packages are ideal for anyone who wants to host their website at the lowest possible price. And are therefore perfect for anyone looking for a home base for their hobby websites. WordPress is also possible on these packages, although we recommend our SSD hosting packages for best results.

Managed WordPress Hosting: If you have or want to create a WordPress website, we offer special managed WordPress hosting packages. With managed WordPress hosting, you don't have to worry about technical details such as updates, security and performance optimization, as we take care of this for you. Our managed WordPress hosting packages offer several benefits, including automatic WordPress updates, daily backups and first-class WordPress support.

.NET hosting packages: At MijnHostingPartner.co.uk, we offer dedicated .NET hosting packages for websites developed with the Microsoft .NET framework. Our .NET hosting packages are ideal for companies and developers working with ASP.NET, MVC and other .NET technologies. They are suitable for hosting Umbraco and NopCommerce websites, for example. As well as for self-developed projects within .NET. In these packages you have access to the latest versions of .NET and standard MS SQL databases and your own Dedicated Application Pool.

The domain name

In addition to the hosting costs, you also need to consider the cost of your domain name. These costs vary depending on the extension you choose (.com, .nl, .org, etc.). On average, the cost of a domain name is between €7 and €50 per year. With most hosting packages, we also offer the option to purchase multiple domain names and link them together, so you can have 1 SSD hosting package and use it with 5 domain names, for example.

Software tools and more

Depending on the functionality you want to add to your website, there may be additional costs for software tools, themes and plugins. Some popular platforms like WordPress offer free themes and plugins, but you may have to pay for advanced features of certain themes and plugins. You may also need to pay for tools such as website statistics software; tools like Ahrefs and Semrush often charge for this. You can find a free alternative for almost everything that is open source. However, sometimes this may not quite meet your needs. So do your research and see which features are most important to you.

Website maintenance

A website needs regular maintenance, such as updating software, creating backups and securing the site against hackers. If you do these tasks yourself, there are no additional costs for maintenance. However, if you prefer us to take care of these tasks for your WordPress website, you can consider a managed WordPress hosting package.

The amount you spend on your website each month depends on several factors, such as the type of website, the hosting package, the domain name, any software tools and the maintenance required. It is important to take all these costs into account when planning your website budget.
