Web Services

I am frequently asked about the cost of setting up and running a website for non-profit projects. Each project is unique but this could give you a ballpark idea of the cost. It is important to keep in mind that for a website to be current all year, with 2-3 weekly content updates and active connections to social media sites, a small organisation needs to designate a person to work at least 4-5 hours a week on the site.

Item English (USD) Íslenska (ISK)
Domain (.net, .com, .org) $20 (p. year) 3.000 krónur (á ári)
Domain (.is) $70 (p. year) 9.900 krónur (á ári)
Hosting (basic) / hýsing (grunnverð) $15 (p. month) 2.500 krónur (á mánuði)
Hosting (pro) / hýsing (grunnverð) $70 (p. month) 9.900 krónur (á mánuði)
WordPress Free Án endurgjalds
Theme per site / útlit fyrir eitt vefsvæði $75 11.000 krónur
One Time Setup / Uppsetning á grunnkerfi $500 75.000 krónur
Standard Hourly Rate / Verð á klst. $70 9.980 krónur
Basic Monthly Contract (12h/month) / Mánaðarlegur samningur (12 klst/mán) $700 99.800 krónur

Example for a small non-profit

  • The base cost of a new website is approx. $15 (domain) + $75 (theme) + $500 (setup fee) = $590*.
  • Monthly cost of a website is $15 (hosting) + $700 (Monthly Contract) = $715.
  • Yearly cost of a website is $15 (domain) = $15.
  • Full cost for the first year $590* + $715 x 12 = $9,170
  • Years after that $715 x 12 + $15 = $8,595 

* The cost of adding basic content is not included. Depending on complexity of the content the cost of adding content can take from 15-25 hours. If there is a need for content creation, be it writings, images, videos, etc. the cost adds up quickly.

* Kostnaður við að setja upp grunnefni á síðuna er ekki innifalinn í þessum tölum. Reikna má með að uppsetning á efni taki 15-25 klst. Ef um er að ræða flókið efni eða ef þörf er á textagerð, mynd- eða myndbandsvinnslu má reikna með að kostnaðurinn aukist verulega.
